(OHIO) - The archery season for white-tailed deer hunting begins tomorrow, September 25th across the state.
Archery season will last from September 25th until February 6th, 2022, and the statewide deer bag limit remains at six deer, only one of which may be antlered, and a hunter cannot exceed a county bag limit.
Montgomery and Butler Counties have a limit of no more than three deer, with Preble, Miami, Clark, Greene, and Warren at a two deer limit. Youth deer gun season will begin on November 20th, with regular deer gun season to start on November 29th.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources say more deer have been harvested with a bow than during gun season over the last 8 years.
Coshocton County once again led the state with 6,791 deer harvested.
Other counties with a high deer harvest include Tuscarawas with 6,158 and Ashtabula with 5,662.
You can get a hunting license, check game and view wildlife area maps on the state’s HuntFish app.
