Deerkill Down During Recent Muzzeloader Season
Friday, January 13, 2006 5:55:34 PM - Monroe Ohio

Hunters took 23,056 deer during Ohio's four-day muzzleloader season, Dec. 27-30, with Tuscarawas County again leading the state with 930 deer checked, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife. Last year, a preliminary total of 27,749 deer was taken during muzzleloader season.

During the last two decades, Ohio's muzzleloader season has consistently grown in popularity. Twenty years ago, the statewide muzzleloader season accounted for 5 percent of the total deer kill, and today it constitutes 12 percent of the total annual deer harvest.
  
Counties reporting the highest number of deer checked during the muzzleloader season included: Tuscarawas 930, Washington 836, Jefferson 775, Coshocton 715, Harrison 714, Meigs 709, Holmes 700, Licking 696, Athens 693 and Guernsey 680.

Hunters have killed a preliminary total of 190,718 deer across the state since Ohio's deer hunting seasons opened on Oct. 1. Archery hunters took 41,859 deer during the first six weeks of the statewide archery season, which continues through Jan. 31. In its third year, the youth season resulted in the bagging of 8,722 deer. Hunters checked 116,855 deer during the statewide deer-gun season. Another 226 deer were taken during the early muzzleloader deer season on three specific hunting areas.
Hunters who wish to share their success can submit a photo of themselves and the deer they killed this year. The web address is ohiodnr.com/wildlife/hunting/deer/deerpics_05.
