According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife, “excitement grows” in the state for the fall hunting season. With squirrel, mourning dove, rail, snipe, gallinule, fox, Canada geese, and teal already allowed to be hunted, Ohio’s white-tailed deer will be available at the end of September.
“Ohio’s hunting license sales increased 5% in 2020 from the previous season,” said Division of Wildlife Chief Kendra Wecker. “We know that many Ohioans are eagerly anticipating the start of fall hunting. You’ll find abundant populations of mourning doves, squirrels, and geese when you return to the woods and fields. As always, thank you for supporting conservation in Ohio.”
