Goll Woods included in archery hunting list 6.13

Written by David Green.

An increasing deer population, resulting in extensive damage to native plant communities, has led the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Natural Areas and Preserves to coordinate special archery deer hunts at 25 state nature preserves across the state.
 
High quality habitats at these state nature preserves, including Eagle Creek, Fowler Woods, Goll Woods and Lake Katharine, have been negatively impacted by over-browsing deer. For example, several acres of large flowered trillium-Ohio's state wildflower-have nearly disappeared at Lake Katharine State Nature Preserve because of foraging deer. Similar situations occur at 24 other sites.
 
"Conducting special management hunts enables the division to protect native plant communities in Ohio's best natural areas," said Steven Maurer, chief of the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves. "An added benefit is that Ohio's hunters are given an opportunity to explore high quality areas and assist ODNR with critical land management activities."
 
There will be six (6) two-week archery hunts beginning November 2 through January 24, 2009. Hunters may harvest two (2) deer but must harvest an antlerless deer first. Antlerless deer permits are allowed.
 
To apply for the special archery hunt lotteries, applicants must send in a postcard with their name, address, daytime phone number and the hunt name (such as Lake Katharine Archery Hunt), along with a $5 processing fee. Do not send cash-checks and money orders (also note hunt name on check) must be made out to Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preserves. Processing fees are not refundable.
 
Please submit a separate postcard and $5 processing fee for EACH hunt. Mail entries to the Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preserves, 2045 Morse Road, Bldg. F-1, Columbus, OH  43229.  Lottery entries must be received by September 6, 2008. Successful archery hunt applicants will be notified by mail.

  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
