Ohio's Deer Harvest Down 7.6%

COLUMBUS, OH – Hunters checked 172,040 white-tailed deer throughout Ohio’s 2018-2019 deer season, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Last year, 186,247 deer were checked during the 2017-2018 season.

The ODNR Division of Wildlife remains committed to properly managing Ohio’s deer populations. The goal of Ohio’s Deer Management Program is to provide a deer population that maximizes recreational opportunities, while minimizing conflicts with landowners and motorists.

Deer hunting regulations over the past four seasons have been designed to allow for moderate herd growth throughout most of the state. Herd growth is achieved by reducing harvest and protecting female deer.

Editor’s Note: A list of all white-tailed deer checked by hunters during the 2018-2019 deer season is shown below. The first number following the county’s name shows the harvest number for the 2018-2019 season, and the 2017-2018 season number is in parentheses.

Thanks for posting the information C!

Perhaps Sunday Hunting does not cause the deer herd devastation some predict, even in a state that is in the top 10 in hunter density (#5 on QDMA's list, but it's from 2103).

The reason there is a drop is the big license fee hick for non resident. They even hammered the youth but put it back to ten bucks for youtht

Of course it doesn’t.

Years ago they started allowing Sunday hunting in NY, people screamed from the mountaintops the it was going to devastate the deer herd and ruin everything. IT DIDNT. Then they allowed rifles in the Southern Tier after years of shotgun only and once again there were screams from the mountaintops out hownit was going to destroy the deer population. IT DIDNT.

Of course it dropped, they limited the harvest of antlerless deer on public lands this yr. Kudo's to the ODNR!

PETA hates me, but I'm okay with that......
