Proposed regulations for Ohio hunters near vote

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio wildlife officials have made
changes to proposed hunting regulations after weeks of weighing public
comments and reviewing data.
The Department of Natural Resources
says its Division of Wildlife’s amended proposal says that hunters can
load shotguns and pistol-cartridge rifles with no more than three shells
in the magazine and chamber combined when hunting white-tailed deer.
The
current hunting regulation states a shotgun must be plugged if it is
capable of holding more than three shells. The division’s initial
proposal required a magazine plug or inert ammunition to limit capacity
for pistol cartridge rifles.
The 2014-15 hunting regulations presented to the council also called for new deer bag limits in many
counties.
The Ohio Wildlife Council will vote April 9 on the proposed policies.
