More than 1,000 acres of quality deer hunting land will be available to archers as part of controlled hunts at Maumee Bay, Caesar Creek, Deer Creek, Findley and Malabar Farm state parks. Hunters must be present at the drawing location if they are interested in hunting.
Deer harvested in these controlled hunts will not count against a hunter’s statewide, county or public land bag limit.
All drawings except Maumee Bay will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21. Maumee Bay will be drawn on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. at the Maumee Bay State Park office, 1400 State Park Rd., Oregon, Ohio. Contact Andy Thompson at (419) 836-7758 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
All hunts are archery only.
Names will be randomly drawn and those selected will be assigned a location to hunt in the park.
Hunters will be permitted to hunt with a partner. The partner is not required to attend the drawing but must be named prior to the start of the hunt.
Selected hunters will be eligible to hunt their assigned location for two-week increments.
Hunters must possess a valid 2019-2020 hunting license and a valid deer permit to hunt in the park.
