Ohio Hunting & Fishing Regulations

Ohio State Hunting and Fishing Regulations

Known as the Buckeye State, Ohio produces some of the largest trophy bucks in the United States and has thus become one of the top destinations for deer hunters season after season. While deer hunting may steal the show in Ohio, there are still plenty of other species for hunters to pursue such as turkey, duck, dove, snip woodcock, pheasant, quail, fox, coyote, and wild boar.

With 124,000 acres of inland water, 2.25 million acres of Lake Erie, and 7,000 miles of streams, there is no shortage of fishing opportunity across the state. Common catches include largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, carp, muskellunge, and lake trout.
