Youth hunters report harvesting more than 6,500 deer
HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Young hunters have reported harvesting more than 6,500 white-tailed deer during Ohio’s two-day youth gun season.
The state Department of Natural Resources reports the counties with the most deer hunted include Logan, Champaign and Preble.
Young hunters could use a shotgun, muzzleloader, handgun or straight-walled cartridge rifle during the season on Nov. 17 and 18. They were required to be accompanied by a non-hunting adult.
Young hunters could celebrate their successes by uploading photos at wildohio.gov to receive First Harvest certificates.
