Ohio hunters are heading out today to comb the wilderness in search of a prize 12-point. An estimated four-hunred-fifty-thousand hunters will be out state wide for the first day of deer-gun season, which begins today a half hour before sunrise. In Muskingum County, Dillon State Park is a popular choice for hunters to camp out this week. All twenty-nine of the parks cabins and ninety camp sites are filled with hunters. Park Officer Doug Linsley says it's usually an easy week for him, and he doesn't expect many problems. One-hundred-twenty-thousand deer are predicted to be killed this season by The Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Not only does deer-gun season bring hunters to the area for deer kill, but it also helps out the economy with restaurants, hotels, and gas stations benefitting from those who are coming to hunt. Deer-gun season runs from today through Sunday.
