White-tailed deer hunting season changes include moving the two-day gun season to Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 17-18, and muzzleloader season to Jan. 7-10, 2017.
Overview of deer hunting seasons for 2016-2017:

The county bag limits remain the same. The statewide bag limit remains at six deer, only one deer may be antlered, and a hunter cannot exceed a county bag limit.
Waterfowl Hunting
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) oversees all migratory bird regulations, including Ohio’s hunting seasons. A recent change in the USFWS process now allows Ohio to propose fall waterfowl regulations in January and vote on them in April, more than six months earlier than in previous years. Changes to the migratory bird regulations include adding extra hunting days to the goose season and lowering the daily bag limit of canvasback to one.

The Ohio Wildlife Council also voted to move the line which separates the north and south waterfowl hunting zones farther north. The USFWS allows states to change their waterfowl zones once every five years. After public input from open houses, the waterfowl summit and waterfowl surveys, the boundary line between the north and south waterfowl zones was moved along a route similar to 2006-2010. The Lake Erie Marsh Zone remains unchanged.
