The Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife is holding open house meetings in all five districts to discuss proposed rule changes to Ohio’s fish and wildlife rules. The meetings will be noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, and are open to the public.
“Ohio’s anglers, hunters, trappers and wildlife enthusiast are encouraged to provide their input on any rule being considered for change,” said Scott Zody, chief of ODNR’s Division of Wildlife. Rule proposals encompass new rules for wild animal hunting preserves, commercial bird shooting preserves and wild cervidaes to align with recently enacted legislation (House Bill 389). The rule package also includes proposals to define the geographical limits on reservoirs and bag limits on selected fish species.
