Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC would like to provide you with some information about deer hunting to keep you and your family & friends safe this hunting season. Here are some things to keep in mind this hunting season.
Deer Hunting Permits
In addition to your Ohio annual hunting license, you must purchase a Deer Permit ($24) or an Antlerless Deer Permit ($15) to hunt deer in Ohio. The Deer Permit ($24) is good for an antlered or antlerless deer and is valid statewide.
The Deer Permit is valid Sept. 25, 2010 through Feb. 6, 2011.
Antlerless Deer Permits may only be purchased until November 28, 2010.
Deer Permit ($24)
The Deer Permit is good for an antlered or antlerless deer and is valid statewide. No more than one (1) antlered deer may be taken per license year. These permits may be used during any of the deer hunting seasons, for controlled hunts or in designated Urban Units. These permits may be purchased individually throughout the entire deer season. Refer to the Deer Permit Use and Bag Limits per Zone section to determine the number of Deer Permits you can use in each deer hunting zone.
Antlerless Deer Permit ($15)
Hunters are not required to buy a Deer Permit before purchasing any Antlerless Deer Permits.
Antlerless Deer Permits may be used to take antlerless deer ONLY. These permits may be purchased individually until Nov. 28, 2010. Antlerless deer permits are valid statewide between Sept. 25 and Nov. 28. Antlerless Deer Permits may be used in Zone C through Dec. 5. These permits are also valid at Division of Wildlife controlled hunts, the early muzzleloader season, youth deer gun season, and within designated Urban Deer Units (see Urban Deer Units). Refer to the Deer Permit Use and Bag Limits per Zone section to determine the number of Antlerless Deer Permits you can use in each deer hunting zone.
