Okay, so it looks as if I'm going to have to be extra nice to my wife, Bev, for at least the next couple of months.
While my name was not drawn for any of Ohio's controlled deer or waterfowl hunts, Bev's name was selected: For the November 17 women's firearms deer-hunt at the Ravenna Arsenal training complex.
A selected female can take either another woman or a man. Fortunately for me, Bev has said this is going to be a "date" for us.
And while Bev can shoot a deer of either sex the rules say that I can only shoot an antlerless animal. Works for me.
Anyway, to see if your name was selected for the annual lottery drawing for the controlled hunts, note the following that has been provided by the Ohio Division of Wildlife:
