This has always been vague to me so in the past I've always just bought license and deer permits to be safe.

Questions for Deer Hunting in Ohio:

1. the landowner does not need to purchase a hunting license for hunting on their own land; correct?

2. I live in zone "c". As a landowner hunting on my own land, I do not have to purchase deer permits and am limited to one antlered deer and five antlerless deer or six antlerless deer this season. Is this correct?

Both are correct.
Don't forget if it's urban, you can add those too.

That's correct. However, and this comes straight from the regs book: Those persons exempted from having a hunting license and deer permit for deer hunting on their property are required to have a hunting license and deer permit to aid another hunter.

So if I am reading this correctly, if I take someone hunting on my property and I am "guiding" them, I have to buy a tag? If so, that's a crock. I don't have to have a tag or license to carry a firearm and hunt, but if I am acting as a guide I do?

Hopefully I am reading this incorrect. I can see if I am not on my own property.

Hopefully I am reading this incorrect. I can see if I am not on my own property.[/QU I am reading this under A DEER HUNTER CAN DO THE FOLLOWING. I would think that if you buddy hunting your property and you point him/her to an area, then no. But if you are driving deer to your buddy or rattling or calling, I would see that as directly aiding. Same with calling in a turkey for a guest. It's kinda goofy if you ask me, but that's what it says. Shouldn't be a problem foq you Darron as you hunt other property and have license and tags, but I covld see it being a problem for somebody that soley hunts their own property with friends.

That's the weirdest law I have seen in sometime. I don't need a license/tag to carry a firearm and hunt on my own place, but I need one to assist another hunter. In essense, if I wanted to take a walk on my property during hunting season I would need a tag if I knew someone else was hunting........:coco: I would be sure to fight that one in court. Sounds like another BS law just to get some extra $ for the state.

You are correct about hunting other properties, but it does become a concern if I fill my normal tags early and don't buy anymore tags because I plan to only hunt my property. There are a lot of grey areas in that law and IMO would be extremely hard to enforce.

Hope you were never in that circle. You must mean hanging out with people like that. I'm with you about breaking the law not to mention wiping out the deer herd.
