ODNR is strongly considering and will likely start a doe only muzzleloader season in the middle of October this Fall. Just thought anyone who hunts Ohio would want to know. It might change your hunting plans for this Fall. In my opinion, it will likely ruin any bow hunting you may want to do here in mid to late October or early November... [Frown]

I agree just another excuse for people to tag more "Bow killed" bucks with round entry and exit wounds.
I don't think doe only seasons will excite too many folks. Just give people reason to go into woods with gun and hunt rutting bucks.

For me, this just stinks. I've been stewing about it all day and even sent an e-mail to ODNR.

Hey buckeye hunter and any other interested Ohions ,March 2nd from noon till 3pm if you go to your local district headquarters ,you have a chance to voice your opinions on this and any other topics that are slated as potential rule changes to our laws.
I plan on attending to voice my opinion on this as well as a couple other things.
I really think the insurance companies have a big influence over changes like this as it obviously helps their purse strings . Every deer that's gone before the rut is one less to dash out in front of an unsuspecting car when they go through their crazy week.
Bloods boiling here as we'll!! [Mad]

We heard it will be doe only even if you are bow hunting. The deer herd around my hunting grounds is almost nonexistent now. I think it has more to do with being able to sell more doe tags. [Frown]

I live in DE and I have to agree. Not to mention the bucks who get "mistakenly" killed during those days. Being an october bowhunter in Delaware is not what it used to be.

Portage Co lost 60% of the herd to EHD this year. I thought our numbers were down state wide.
What is the reason.

Good point ! So they want to decrease it even more ? Very disappointing !

I believe the DOW is saying it's only going to be a two day ML season for the early one.

They're saying that it should increase rutting activity due to fewer does around at the time of the rut.

Could it be? Maybe?

The muzzleloader doe season is only proposed for 2 days, but serious bowhunters know what 200,000 people in the woods does to deer activity overall.


With youth shotgun only 3 weks later, the future of public land rut hunting in Ohio doesn't look good....

I will be at the information/hearing on these changes March 3rd.
