Knox County Sees Slight Increase in Deer Harvest


December 8, 2015 - 5:06 PM


COLUMBUS – Hunters checked 73,399 white-tailed deer during Ohio’s 2015 deer-gun hunting season, Nov. 30-Dec. 6, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). This represents a significant increase over last year’s harvest of 65,484 deer. During the 2013 deer-gun season, 75,408 deer were checked.

Locally, Hunters in Knox County checked 1,755 deer, a slight increase over the 1,727 checked during the 2014 gun season.

To date, for the 2015 deer hunting seasons, hunters have checked 152,554 deer. Last year at this same time, hunters had harvested a total of 148,821 deer. Given that the year-to-date harvest is only slightly higher, the significant increase in this year’s deer-gun season can most likely be attributed to better weather conditions compared to the 2014 deer-gun season. A smaller contributing element could be the fact that there was not an antlerless muzzleloader season in October this year. This year’s harvest was closer to the 2013 deer-gun season harvest, which also points to last year’s poor weather as the primary factor for the increase.

Two days (Monday, Dec. 28, and Tuesday, Dec. 29) of deer-gun season remain. The muzzleloader season is Jan. 9-12, 2016, and archery season remains open through Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016.
