Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: Poachers pay in Brown County

(Continued)

’Tis the season

Ohio’s white-tailed deer muzzleloader hunting season will open statewide Jan. 5-8, 2013, according to the Division of Wildlife.

Ohio hunters have harvested 188,853 deer this season. During the 2012 four-day muzzleloader season, 19,459 deer were harvested.

Ohio deer hunters must possess the proper permits. Regardless of zone, method of taking or season, hunters may take only one antlered deer during the 2012-13 deer hunting season.

Legal hunting hours for the muzzleloader season are a half-hour before sunrise to sunset. Deer must be checked in by noon the day after the harvest, except on the last day of muzzleloader season when a deer must be checked in by 11:30 p.m. that day.

Ohio’s small game, furbearer and waterfowl seasons are also open during the muzzleloader season. All hunters (except waterfowl hunters) must wear a visible solid hunter orange or camouflage hunter orange coat, jacket, vest or coveralls during the muzzleloader season.

Deer-archery season remains open through Feb. 3, 2013.

As a reminder hunters must still report their deer harvest, but they are no longer required to take their deer to a check station for physical inspection. Hunters have three options to complete the automated game check:

Online at www.wildohio.com.

By telephone at 877-TAG-ITOH (824-4864). This option is only available to people required to have a deer permit to hunt deer.

At all license agents. A list of these agents can be found at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE (945-3543). More information about Ohio deer hunting can be found in the 2012-13 Hunting and Trapping Regulations or at www.wildohio.com. Hunters can also share photos by clicking on the Photo Gallery tab online.

Cold-weather whitetails

Late season hunting can provide some of the most productive time spent in the woods the entire season. Hunters can enjoy tremendous success by locating the remaining food sources and keeping a close tab on the weather, especially in Northeast Ohio.

  • Tribe Not quite enough

    Although the Indians are still very much mathematically alive in the race for a postseason berth, they continue not to look like a playoff team. And when they have put a run together, they haven’t been able to maintain the habit of playing winning baseball.
