The Ohio Division of Wildlife's "hotline" is now open for business. The hotline is 1-800-WILDLIFE. It became operational Saturday for the annual youth deer gun season, and will continue to accept calls until December 6. That includes the regular, one week deer gun season which begins November 30.
Susie Vance is a spokeswoman for the Wildlife Division. She says hotline operators take calls regarding regulations and questions from the field. People are also encouraged to call to report violations of state wildlife laws. That number is 1-800-POACHER. Tipsters who call may be eligible for a cash award.
