While a deer can run out in front of your car or truck 365 days a year, the fall is the time you usually hear and read warnings to motorists. But there are reasons why drivers should be extra careful in the spring, too.
For the first time, Ohio hunters will be able to go after deer with rifles when the gun season opens on Dec. 1. But only rifles that shoot straight-wall cartridges will be legal. So now you can use shotguns, handguns, straight-wall cartridge rifles, muzzleloaders and archery to kill deer in the Buckeye state.
