ODNR to offer special deer hunt in Plain City

Staff report

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) will coordinate special archery deer hunts at six locations that border three of Ohio’s designated Scenic Rivers, including one in Plain City.

Application for the hunts will be handled at the local level by ODNR staff during scheduled drawings. Hunters must attend individual meetings if they are interested in particular hunts. At that time, hunters can enter the drawing by purchasing a single ticket at a price of $5.

Hunters must possess a valid 2015-16 hunting license in order to purchase tickets. Names will be randomly drawn, and those selected will be assigned a specific time to hunt. An orientation will be conducted immediately following the drawing.

Hunters will be permitted to hunt with a partner; however, the partner is not required to attend the drawing or orientation. Special regulations governing these hunts will be addressed at the orientation meetings following the drawings.

Hunt locations and drawing dates are listed below. Each drawing will be held on Saturday, Aug. 22.
