COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state says hunters took nearly 16,000 deer during Ohio’s four-day muzzleloader season this month.

The Department of Natural Resources says over 15,800 deer were checked from Jan. 7 to Jan. 10. That’s about 3,300 more than during the comparable season last year.

Hunters harvested more than 9,200 deer during the state’s two-day gun season last month. Archery season for Ohio deer hunters is open until Feb. 5.

State officials say the state tries to manage deer to provide a deer population that maximizes recreational opportunities and minimizes conflicts with landowners and motorists.
