Here are the dates and the rules.

The whitetail deer hunting season begins in Ohio on September 24 and will end on February 5, 2023.

This week marked the beginning of autumn, which means that the hours of the day are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. The transition also means that hunting season has arrived in Ohio.

It’s time to set your alarm clocks for sunrise, because the first hunting season of fall begins with the squirrels on September 1 and ends on January 31, 2023.

But if hunting squirrels isn’t exactly your thing, then you won’t have to wait long for the next season to start.
