I agree, the DNR should make it legal to use rifles during gun season. Will help with the population control as well. How many times have you heard "But they just weren't close enough". This is why I use my in-line during shotgun season.
not on state land between oct 15 and jan 1 during daylight hours. but for the most part yes rifles are legal for yotes. rifle legal for deer!?!?!?!?! pleeeeeas not around here never, to flat in my part of ohio. and just check the rifle shootings that go on in our nieghbor to the north .
we dont need rifles legal in ohio for deer.its bad enough with shotgun hunters tryin to shoot 150 yards at deer,yoo scary for me. if that would ever happen i would definetly not go out durin gun season
The DNR can never change the no rifles for deer regulations. That is and will always be up to the Ohio General Assembly which to me is a crock of well doo doo
Not that we can't hunt deer with rifles but that the DNR can't make any changes to hunting regulations they can only suggest them
I Believe the in-line muzzleloader is as close to a rifle as we're gonna get in Oh. I'm amazed that they're allowed. Some Western states are even outlawing them I've read. In the long run, I think rifles would hurt Ohio's true trophy potential if allowed. We'd end up shootin 4's & 6's like WV and Pa. every year and I for one would'nt want to see that happen!---TF
