Whoops, we all make mistakes but in this case it's a component of the Ohio Division of Wildlife's official annual fishing guide digest.
The agency has announced that anglers need to be aware of a typographical error in Publication 84, Ohio fishing regulations 2011-12 regarding the opening day of turtle season and the bag limit on frogs says the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife.
The correct opening date for turtle season is July 1, 2011, not the second Friday in June (June 10) as printed in the regulations. Also, the bag limit on frogs should be 15, not 10 as printed.
That same document also fails to list the proper state wildlife officer assigned to Lake County, Jason Keller, even though the young man has been in the position for some time now.
And earlier today the Wildlife Division was made aware of the fact that it had no Internet portal for people to sign up for the various controlled waterfowl and deer hunts. The application period for the hunts has been in existence for several days.
A bad hair day all around, it would seem. Then again, who among us have not made such errors?
