Ohio panel OKs proposed deer hunting rules

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio legislative panel has signed off on new deer hunting regulations that cut the number of animals that hunters could kill statewide.

The rules reduce the statewide bag limit on deer from 12 to nine. They also set county limits instead of dividing the state into zones with limits. The caps per county vary.

The state's Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review reviewed and OK'd the new rules on Wednesday.

Hunting hours would be extended 30 minutes past sunset for all deer firearms seasons, making the hours the same as archery season.

The regulations are set to take effect during the 2013-2014 hunting seasons.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources oversees the rules' implementation. The department says the average hunter shoots fewer than two deer annually.
