OH Waterfowlers Wanted!




COLUMBUS, OH - The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife is asking Ohio waterfowl hunters to provide input on the timing of the fall waterfowl hunting season in the portion of Ohio where they prefer to hunt.


The Ohio Wildlife Council will establish season dates and other regulations in late August after federal guidelines are established for the upcoming waterfowl season. Biologists are seeking input from Ohio waterfowl hunters through this online survey so opportunities can be closely matched to the preferences of as many hunters as possible within the constraints of federal guidelines. The survey is available at wildohio.com until August 15. Hunters will need to have their customer identification number readily available (found on all Ohio hunting and fishing licenses) when they take the survey.


Ohio waterfowl hunters provided input in March 2011 on zone boundaries for waterfowl hunting.  Input being requested in the current survey is focused on the timing of hunting season dates, preferences about waterfowl hunting during the deer gun season, and holiday periods.
The ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.com.
