Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: It's a date!

Season specifics for 2013-2014 hunting, trapping announced

The 2013-2014 Ohio hunting and trapping season dates have been released by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

The seasons include changes to address deer management on a county level, and increase hunting opportunities through extended hours and a new early muzzleloader season.

Deer and fall turkey permits will go on sale July 1.

Note — On Thursday, June 13, 2013, the Star Beacon ran a blip in the Area / State section on Page A5 of that days publication reporting by the Associated Press (AP), “Ohio panel OKs new statewide deer hunting rules.”

First and foremost, let me exonerate the Star Beacon of any transgressions on its part. It receives a multitude of stories from the Associated Press and use the ones it feels would be of interest to readers, this being one of them, which it is.

My fault is with the agency listed below which slanted the article, political grandstanding, in order to make it sound like they made those decisions when in all actuality they didn’t. Please read on.

What the sports men and women of Ashtabula County need to know it that this “panel,” “The Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR)” is made up of a panel of politicians.

House Bill 257 of the 112th General Assembly created this committee in 1977. The committee consists of five State Representatives and five State Senators.  

In odd-numbered years, the chairperson is a House member and in even-numbered years, a Senate member.

The primary function of JCARR is to review proposed new, amended and rescinded rules to ensure the following:

  • 1. The rules do not exceed the scope of the rule-making agency’s statutory authority
  • 2. The rules do not conflict with a rule of that agency or another rule-making agency
  • 3. The rules do not conflict with the intent of the legislature in enacting the statute under which the rule is proposed
  • 4. The rule-making agency has prepared a complete and accurate rule summary and fiscal analysis of the proposed rule, amendment, or rescission (RC 127.18)
  • 5. The rule-making agency has met the incorporation by reference standards for a text or other material as stated in ORC sections 121.72, 121.75, or 121.76; and
  • 6. If the rule has an adverse impact on business (RC 107.52), that the rule-making agency has demonstrated through the business impact analysis (BIA), the Common Sense Initiative Office (CSI) recommendations and the agency’s memorandum of response to the CSI recommendations, that the regulatory intent of the rule justifies its adverse impact on business
