"Minimum age" for Ohio deer hunting?

Discussion in 'Ohio Whitetail Deer Hunting' started by jk hillsdale, Jan 10, 2003.

  1. My oldest son will turn ten this summer. Once he has completed a hunter's education course, is there a "minimum age" requirement for him to hunt deer in Ohio?

    I've been unable to determine the age criteria (if any) from the Rules & Regulations pamphlet. Any help would be appreciated.

  2. Once he passes he can hunt anything you want him to here in Ohio.:D :cool:

    My two youngest passed at age 9. But I still had them wait a year before hunting deer. I just wanted them to get used to being outdoors in the woods and fields before going after big game. That was my choice.

  3. Any age after completion of the hunter safety test is correct... Last year Ohio had a 6 year old boy from Pa score on a doe and a fall turkey :cool: His name was Hunter <--
  4. Gentlemen,

    Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate it.

  5. CD2 is right, as long as he has passed the test he can hunt but he has to be accompanied by an adult until he is 16.
