COLUMBUS Columbiana County youngsters harvested 147 deer during the 10th annual statewide youth deer-gun season this weekend according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife.

Last year, Columbiana County youth hunters took 170 deer.

Statewide, youth hunters checked 9,178 white-tailed deer during the two-day season. The harvest total represents a 5.7 percent increase from 2011 (8,681) and is the highest total since 2009 (9,269). Youth hunters have checked at least 8,300 deer every year since 2005.

Counties reporting the highest number of deer checked: Tuscarawas (317), Coshocton (295), Muskingum (280), Licking (262), Knox (247), Holmes (235), Belmont (234), Guernsey (232), Harrison (225) and Washington (196). These were also the top 10 counties in 2011, although the order was different.

Mahoning County hunters took 76 deer, up from 60 in 2011. Stark County youth hunters harvested 100 which was up from 88 a year ago.

Ohio's youth deer-gun season was open in all 88 counties. All participants were required to wear hunter orange, possess a valid Ohio youth hunting license and youth deer permit and also be accompanied by a non-hunting adult.

All hunters will have a chance at bagging a white-tailed deer during the statewide deer-gun season, which is open Monday through Sunday, Nov. 26-Dec. 2, and an additional weekend, Dec. 15-16.
