    Jefferson County is the only county that changed. Went from 3 deer to 2 deer.

    Just read another proposal.

    The ODNR Division of Wildlife also proposed modifications for hunting on public land that would permit hunters to harvest only one antlerless deer from public hunting areas per license year and require that only antlered deer be harvested on public land after Dec. 2. This proposal would allow for some herd growth on public land. The statewide bag limit was proposed to remain at six deer, only one of which may be antlered, and a hunter cannot exceed a county bag limit.

    When I first started deer hunting, either sex opening day, antlered after that.

    I like the public land proposal. I think it is a good start to limit the harvest. Only downside is events like the TOO muzzleloader hunt would be buck only.

    Dark green is counties that allow an antler less permit.

    Hahaha, yeah, that was a joke!
    Carrying a shed or two for several hours while you continue to look for more early in a hunt is a burden but I'll try to work through it.....

    Be interested to see just how many deer that actually is. I'll send an email tomorrow. I seem to remember bringing that up to a state man years ago whose name sounds similar to fullofshit and his response was it won't work because people will just shoot them earlier because they know they can't wait until later.

    I didn't see any verbage to distinguish the difference. Just guessing here. Maybe counties offering early antlerless tags versus just the either or tags?

    I think the 1 doe limit would have more of an impact than the Dec 2 date.

    It's the same as it has been since they offered the doe tags. Dark green counties get a doe tag, light green do not.

    Right, but only one can you use the discounted antlerless tag.

    Since Stark was dark green I thought maybe that meant more than 50% of the buck are Booners?
