Hunters wanting to participate in Ohio’s 2013-2014 controlled deer and waterfowl hunts have until Wednesday, July 31, to submit permit applications for a random drawing, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
The special hunts are held on selected public areas to provide additional hunting opportunities for Ohio’s hunting enthusiasts.
All applicants, youth and adult, must possess a 2013-2014 hunting license and meet the age requirements in order to apply for a controlled hunt.
Hunters can apply for the controlled hunts by completing the application process online using the Wild Ohio Customer Center at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE (945-3543) and requesting a mail-in application. There is a non-refundable application fee of $3 per hunt.
