Lottery to be held for Special Youth Archery Deer Hunt at East Harbor

An increasing deer population, resulting in extensive damage to plant communities and an increased risk of deer/vehicle accidents has led the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) to coordinate a (youth) special archery deer hunt at East Harbor State Park. The random drawing will be held on Nov. 4 by the Lakeshore Longbeards Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, to select nine hunters.

Interested applicants, 17 years old or younger, should submit a 3" x 5" post card with their printed name, complete address and daytime telephone number with the caption "Jake Hunt" to East Harbor State Park, 1169 North Buck Road, Marblehead, OH, 43440. Submit only one entry; all permits are non-transferable. Applications must be post marked by Nov. 1.
