State’s hunters get more time to go after deer

Deer-gun season extended an extra 30 minutes per day

This year’s Ohio deer-gun season, which begins Monday, Dec. 2, provides hunters with an extra 30 minutes of prime hunting time.

According to Ohio Department of Natural Resources, hunting time will be extended an extra half-hour for all deer-gun seasons. Hunters were already allowed to hunt deer 30 minutes before sunrise, and this year an additional 30 minutes has been added after sunset for gun seasons.

Deer-gun season runs through Sunday, Dec. 8.

“We are eager to increase opportunities for Ohio’s sportsmen and women,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer in a press release. “Ohio is a top-10 whitetail hunting destination, and the extra half-hour after sunset will give hunters more opportunities to bag a deer.”
