Over 22,000 Deer Harvested During Opening Day of Gun Season


State officials say hunters checked more than 22,000 white-tailed deer on the opening day of Ohio's deer-gun hunting season. 

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says 22,336 deer were harvested Monday as the season began across the state. That compares with the nearly 19,000 deer checked by hunters on last year's opening day. 

The season remains open through Sunday, Dec. 3, with two additional days this year on Dec. 16 and 17.
