The Ohio Wildlife Council at their meeting Wednesday night approved the 2014-2015 proposed hunting regulations. These regulations must still be approved by the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) at the statehouse.

The proposed regulations are largely similar to this past year in terms of bag limits and season dates. The January deer-muzzleloading season dates have been adjusted and the October antlerless muzzleloading weekend will be held again.

In a change that has been requested for many years by League member clubs, straight-wall cartridge rifles will be legal for the deer-gun season December 1-7. The League, after many years of consideration, is in support of this new opportunity for hunters around Ohio. There is also a change in language that shotguns and rifles used during the deer-gun season may have no more than three cartridges or shells combined in the chamber and magazine. The League asked the Division of Wildlife for this clarification and fully supports the rule change.

Full details of the proposed regulations can be found at the ODNR's website and news release (click here)

Each year, the League's membership considers resolutions that give our organization its direction for policy for upcoming years. At the 2014 convention, the membership adopted ten resolutions.

This year's resolutions deal with the gun issues, deer hunting regulations, non-resident license fees, and environmental concerns. CLICK HERE to read this year's adopted resolutions
