Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: New antlerless-only muzzleloader hunt on tap

Ohio hunters may participate in a new antlerless-only deer muzzleloader season Saturday and Sunday, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

“October is a great time to hunt deer in Ohio. This new antlerless muzzleloader weekend is a chance for Ohio hunters to enjoy the outdoors and help manage the state’s deer herd,” Scott Zody, chief of the ODNR Division of Wildlife, said. “Hunters should be aware that no antlered deer may be killed during this weekend, regardless of hunting implement.”

In addition to this added antlerless season, an extra half hour of prime hunting time after sunset was added to all gun seasons this year to give hunters more golden opportunities in the field. Hunting hours are now 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset.

It is legal to hunt antlerless deer statewide with a muzzleloader or bow during this two-day season. No antlered deer may be harvested regardless of hunting implement. Antlerless deer include deer without antlers and deer with antlers less than three inches in length. All hunters, excluding waterfowl hunters, are required to wear a vest, coat, jacket or coveralls that are either solid hunter orange or camouflage hunter orange.

Hunters will be able to use antlerless permits and either-sex permits during this two-day season.  A new tagging procedure administered by the Division of Wildlife requires hunters to make their own game tag to attach to a deer. Game tags can be made of any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time and county of the kill. Go to the Deer Hunting Resources page at wildohio.com for more information on changes to the game check process.

Workshop for educators

Both formal and non-formal educators who work with children ages three to seven are invited to attend a Growing Up WILD workshop in Lake County on Tuesday. The workshop, which will be facilitated by personnel from the Division of Wildlife, will be held at the Holden Arboretum from 4-7 p.m.

Growing Up Wild is an early childhood education program that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them.  Workshop participants will take home an easy-to-use book containing nearly 30 field-tested activities focusing on wildlife and nature. These activities blend social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive skills to help foster learning and are correlated to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Standards and the Head Start Domains.

Step-Up-To-Quality (SUTQ) credits from the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services will be offered. There is no fee for the workshop but pre-registration is required by calling Holden Arboretum at (440) 602-3833. Spaces are limited.
