Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: Feelin’ a bit froggy? Here’s the tonic

What’s hopping at the Ohio Division of Wildlife District Three Headquarters in Akron? A frog-gigging workshop, that’s what’s hopping!

Join Division of Wildlife staff on Wednesday, June 19 to learn the ins and outs of gigging frogs.

The workshop will cover basic gear, seasons and laws, and processing and cooking. After the seminar, youth ages 10-15 in attendance will be given the opportunity to gig onsite at the Youth Area wetlands.

The workshop will be from 7-9:00 p.m. at Wildlife District Three, 912 Portage Lakes Drive, Akron. Preregistration is required as space is limited.

Call Ken Fry at (330) 245-3030.

Controlled hunts

Hunters wanting to participate in Ohio’s 2013-14 controlled deer and waterfowl hunts have until July 31 to submit permit applications for a random drawing, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). These special hunts are held on selected public areas to provide additional hunting opportunities for Ohio’s hunting enthusiasts.

All applicants, youth and adult, must possess a 2013-14 hunting license and meet the age requirements in order to apply for a controlled hunt.

Hunters can apply for the controlled hunts by completing the application process online using the Wild Ohio Customer Center at www.wildohio.com or by calling 800-945-3543 and requesting a mailin application. There is a non-refundable application fee of $3 per hunt.

Hunters will be randomly drawn from submitted applications. Successful applicants will be notified and provided additional hunt information by U.S. mail and email. Applicants are encouraged to visit the Wild Ohio Customer Center at wildohio.com to view the status of their application and, if selected, print their controlled hunt permit.

More specific information about hunt dates and locations, including opportunities dedicated to youth, women and mobility-impaired hunters, can be found at wildohio.com.

The sale of Ohio’s 2013-14 white-tailed deer and fall wild turkey hunting permits will be delayed until July 1 because the rule-making process has not finalized the proposed hunting and trapping regulations.

Any questions from the public can be directed to their nearest Wildlife District Office or 1-800-945-3543.

    After being cooped up in gymnasiums for the better part of the season so far, the Conneaut and Lakeside softball teams were just happy to get onto a diamond. Playing for the first time in nearly a week, the Spartans toppled the Dragons, 11-2, Thursday afternoon at Lakeside.

  • PV can’t get past Mathews

    Thursday afternoon at Pymatuning Valley, the visiting Mathews Mustangs were able to do what every coach hopes for — execute. They played a clean game from start to finish in every facet of the game, and that carried the Mustangs to an 8-2 Northeastern Athletic Conference victory.

  • Don A Don McCormack column: ‘Kids’ stuff’ spurs great responses

    I’m often caught more than a bit off-guard by what stories, features or columns generate responses from you, Loyal Readers, much more so than those who do not.
    For example, the column that appeared in this space a couple of days ago regarding things yours truly and my buddies did as kids prompted more than a few responses.
    A sampling, many of which were posted on my Facebook page:

  • Olivia In transition

    Pymatuning Valley graduate Olivia Holt had a distinct reason she chose to play basketball for Mount Union.
    “They do have tradition,” Holt, the daughter of Gus and Michelle Holt, said. “I’m from PV. We had a tradition of winning and working hard there. I wanted to go somewhere that tradition mattered. I knew I was going to get better by coming here.”

  • Don A Don McCormack column: Spring has sprung one big leak

    Paying a Wednesday morning visit to the variety store...

    Think spring?
    If this, um, err, uh... spring... feels a bit unusual for high school baseball and softball teams in Northeast Ohio, it is, to a point.
