Deer Gun Season Underway in Ohio

AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Ohio Deer Gun Season began a half hour before sunrise on Monday morning, or 6:55 a.m. in the Canton area.

Deer hunting is underway during daytime hours this week, through Sunday.

Jayme Emert with the ODNR Division of Wildlife says it’s important to have the 2023-2024 hunting regulations manual in order to have the latest rules and information.

Changes in the rules are printed in red.

There are a few changes from last year, including adjustments to the bag limits in seven counties.
