When hunters go after deer in Ohio, they create an economic ripple effect, state officials said. The money they pay for hunting licenses and deer tags goes to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife, said Vicki Ervin, division spokeswoman. The money supports conservation programs, such as buying land and producing educational materials, she said. The division estimates hunting has a $859 million economic impact on Ohio.
