Attention Ohio Sportsmen: Ohio Division of Wildlife Considering Concealed Carry!

Tuesday, February 20, 2007


The Ohio Division of Wildlife will soon be holding annual open house meetings for each of its districts. The meetings will be held on Sunday, March 4 at District Offices in Districts 1-4 and at the Greene County Fish and Game Clubhouse for District 5.  

The wildlife regulations, including those which prohibit concealed carry, are reviewed only once per year.  Your help is needed now!  The Ohio Division of Wildlife has been slow to follow state law, and allow sportsmen and women
, with a CHL to carry a concealed handgun while deer hunting in Ohio.  This is an ideal opportunity to have the voices of Ohio’s sportsmen heard to allow carrying concealed afield.


Please take the time to attend these open houses.  If you are unable to attend, please contact your District Office and/or the Chief of the Ohio Division of Wildlife:
