Proposals would change Ohio deer-hunting rules

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Wildlife Council will consider proposals next week allowing deer-gun hunting in early January.

Ohio's Division of Wildlife Chief Scott Zody says the proposal would result in a total of 5 days of January gun hunting.

He says Jan. 3-4 would be open to all legal firearms and Jan. 5-7 restricted to muzzleloaders.

The proposal would allow hunting from one half-hour before sunrise to one half-hour after sunset on both days.

The Wildlife Council also will consider a proposal to adjust the bag limits in Hocking, Perry and Ross counties from three to four deer.

The council approves all rules and regulations for the Division of Wildlife.

Wednesday's meeting will be open to the public.
