Urban Deer Hunting Program 2012-2013
Since its inception in 1991, the Urban Deer Hunting Program has been successful in lowering the number of car versus deer crashes, as well as reducing the amount of property and landscape damage within the city limits.
Every year the Urban Deer Hunting Program looks for experienced bow hunters to assist in continuing the success of the program. To participate in the Urban Deer Hunting Program, interested hunters are required
to attend an orientation prior to the start of deer hunting season. At the orientation, members from the Gahanna Police Department
, the Gahanna Department of Parks & Recreation
, as well as a representative from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR)
will discuss the rules and regulations of the program and areas which are available for hunting. Last year there were over 300 people that registered and were approved to participate in the Urban Deer Hunting Program.
This year’s deer hunting season runs from September 29th, 2012 through February 3rd, 2013
. All hunters must follow State rules and regulations, as well as the rules and regulations set forth by the Gahanna Program. Statistics for the Urban Deer Hunting Program will be updated as soon as they become available.
