Ohio’s hunting and fishing license year kicked off March 1 allowing hunters and anglers to purchase their 2015-2016 licenses and many permits, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

Ohio’s 2015-2016 licenses will be valid immediately upon purchase through Feb. 29, 2016. White-tailed deer and fall wild turkey hunting permits will go on sale later in 2015.

Licenses and permits can be purchased online at wildohio.gov and at hundreds of participating agents throughout the state. A complete list of participating license sales agents can be found at wildohio.gov.
