COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Hunters in Ohio checked more than 22,600 deer on Monday, the opening day of the state's deer-gun season.

The season runs through Sunday. Deer hunters get an extra 30 minutes each day to hunt.

According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, hunters have harvested about 3 percent fewer deer compared to the same time last season. Hunters have bagged almost 110,000 deer so far this season compared to roughly 113,000 last year.

Approximately 420,000 hunters are expected to participate in this year's season. They must have a valid deer permit and a valid Ohio hunting license.
