Public can chime in on new wildlife regulations
The Ohio Division of Wildlife has submitted a Wildlife License Package (SB 257) that includes language to eliminate the requirement for handicapped hunters to use an electric powered vehicle and permit handicapped hunters to hunt from an ATV. It also removes the requirement that an apprentice hunting license may be purchased for only three years. There will be no limit. And it establishes 3, 5, and 10-year license sales and a lifetime license for hunting and fishing for adults, youth and seniors. An interesting possibility is that fishing licenses will be valid for one year from the date of purchase. Buy it in July and it’s good until next July.
Readers interested in the above possible new regulations or have advice, suggestions or complaints can air them at the Statewide Fish and Game Hearing on Ohio’s 2018-19 hunting season proposals on Thursday, April 12. The hearing will be held at the DOW’s District One office located at 1500 Dublin Road, Columbus, OH 43215. It will begin at 9 a.m. Council meetings are open to the public, and individuals wishing to provide comments are asked to pre-register at least two days before the meeting by calling 614-265-6304.
