Ohio's popular deer-gun season opens statewide on Nov. 30, offering hunters a full week to harvest a whitetail. The upcoming season will again include an extra weekend of gun hunting on Dec. 19-20, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

Deer can be hunted with a legal muzzleloader, handgun or shotgun from one half-hour before sunrise to sunset through Dec. 6 and Dec. 19-20. With a pre-hunting season population estimate of 650,000 white-tailed deer, the ODNR Division of Wildlife anticipates 115,000 to 125,000 deer will be killed during the nine-day season. Approximately 420,000 hunters are expected to participate in this year's season, including many out-of-state hunters.

The white-tailed deer is the most popular game animal in Ohio, frequently pursued by generations of hunters. Ohio ranks 8th nationally in annual hunting-related sales and 10th in the number of jobs associated with the hunting-related industry. Each year, hunting has an $859 million economic impact in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more.

The speed limit for much of State Route 51 in Lake Township will likely be dropping to 50 mph in the near future.
The township trustees have reluctantly agreed to a recommendation by the Ohio Department of Transportation to lower the limit to 50 mph from 55 mph between Fostoria and Pemberville roads. The limit will remain 45 mph between Pemberville Road to the east corporation limit of the City of Northwood.
The trustees Tuesday unanimously agreed to the 50-mph limit after ODOT rejected their request to lower the limit to 45 mph for all of Route 51 in the township.
