Based on historic harvest records, bowhunters can expect some terrific hunting in the coming weeks. In 2022, bowhunters were highly successful on Saturday, Nov. 19 (1,942 deer checked), Sunday, Nov. 20 (1,368), Tuesday, Nov. 15 (1,311), Saturday, Nov. 26 (1,233), and Friday, Nov. 18 (1,192).
 
Ohio’s deer hunters are increasingly using longbows and crossbows to take advantage of tremendous deer hunting in October and November. The archery season lines up with the peak of the rut, or deer breeding season. Deer are travelling more often and farther this time of year as bucks pursue does, making these months an exciting time to be hunting.

With the rut continuing for several more weeks, hunters have ample opportunity to harvest a deer, including with a firearm. The youth weekend is upcoming on Nov. 18-19. The gun season is Monday, Nov. 27 through Sunday, Dec. 3, and again Dec. 16-17. Deer muzzleloader season is Jan. 6-9, 2023. Find complete details in the 2023-24 Hunting and Trapping Regulations
