2016-17  Ohio Hunting and Trapping Seasons    

2016-2017 white-tailed deer hunting seasons:

  • Deer archery: Sept 24- Feb 5                 Dates available
  • Youth deer: Nov 19-20                            Booked
  • Deer gun: Nov 28- Dec 4                        Booked
  • Deer muzzleloader: Jan 7-10                 Available

Hunters may harvest only one buck in Ohio, regardless of the method of take or location. The hunting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes past sunset for all deer seasons. Antlerless permits are valid until Dec. 1, the Sunday before deer-gun season.

County bag limits will replace deer zones. Bag limits are two, three or four deer, depending on the county. The statewide bag limit is nine deer, but a hunter cannot exceed a county bag limit. Additional controlled hunting opportunities do not count against the statewide bag limit.

The December bonus gun weekend, the early muzzleloader season at three public hunting areas (Salt Fork Wildlife Area, Shawnee State Forest and Wildcat Hollow) and urban hunting zones have been discontinued.
