OHIO OFFERS HUNTERS ADDITIONAL WEEKEND FOR DEER-GUN SEASON
Ohio’s deer-gun season returns Saturday and Sunday, December 15-16, according to
the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.
Hunters can use a legal shotgun, muzzleloader or handgun to pursue white-tailed deer
December 15-16 from a half-hour before sunrise to sunset. The extra weekend days
were added in 2006 in response to hunters’ requests for extended weekend hunting
Ohio hunters and birdwatchers are reminded to be aware of one another as they pursue
deer and birds on the shared weekend. Hunters need to remember that there may be
other people — both hunters and non-hunters — in the woods. Birders are also reminded
that hunters are allowed to hunt on private land where they have written permission.
Deer hunters are required to wear a hunter orange vest, coat, jacket or coveralls
in the field. Birders should consider wearing a hunter orange vest or hat during
the deer-gun weekend for their own safety.
Hunters may take only one antlered deer, regardless of zone, hunting method or season.
A deer permit is required in addition to a valid Ohio hunting license. Hunters must
purchase an additional permit to hunt more than one deer. Hunters harvested 86,964
deer during the traditional deer-gun season, November 26 – December 2.
Ohio is divided into three deer hunting zones. One deer may be harvested in Zone
A (six counties) and two deer in Zone B (44 counties). Three deer may be harvested
in Zone C (38 counties).
Those hunting in urban units and at Division of Wildlife-authorized controlled hunts
will have a six-deer bag limit, and those deer do not count against the hunter’s
zone bag limit.
The white-tailed deer is the most popular game animal in Ohio, frequently pursued
by generations of hunters. Ohio ranks eighth nationally in annual hunting-related
sales and 10th in the number of jobs associated with hunting-related industries.
Hunting has an $859 million economic impact in Ohio through the sale of equipment,
fuel, food, lodging and more.
More information about Ohio deer hunting can be found in the 2012-2013 Hunting and
Trapping Regulations or at wildohio.com. Hunters can also share photos by clicking
on the Photo Gallery tab online.
Hunters must still report their deer harvest, but they are no longer required to
take their deer to a check station for physical inspection. Hunters have three options
to complete the automated game check:
• Online at wildohio.com.
• By telephone at 877-TAG-ITOH (824-4864). This option is only available to people
required to have a deer permit to hunt deer.
• At all license agents. A list of these agents can be found at wildohio.com or by
calling 800-WILDLIFE (945-3543).
Hunters are encouraged to donate any extra venison to organizations assisting Ohioans
in need. ODNR Division of Wildlife is collaborating with Farmers and Hunters Feeding
the Hungry (FHFH) to help pay for the processing of donated venison. Hunters who
donate deer are not required to pay the processing cost as long as the deer are taken
to a participating processor. To see which counties are involved in this program,

ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for
the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.com.
RUDY KACHMANN, MD, TO SPEAK AT CMH
Rudy Kachmann, MD, will discuss “Reversing Type II Diabetes” on Wednesday, December
19 at 11:00 a.m., in Community Rooms 1 and 2 at Community Memorial Hospital, 208
N. Columbus St., Hicksville, OH.
This lunch and learn educational session is geared towards senior citizens, but anyone
is welcome to attend. There is no charge to attend this event, and a complimentary
brunch is provided by the hospital. A nurse will also be on hand to take and record
blood pressure measurements. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting
Lori at 419-542-5560.
For over 40 years, Dr. Rudy Kachmann has been a highly-regarded neurosurgeon. He
founded the Kachmann Mind Body Institute with a firm belief that participation in
the arts, yoga, meditation, and maintaining a positive attitude are keys to a long
and happy life.
Dr. Kachmann observes that the typical approach to medicine today is centered on
technology, with x-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs serving as the primary basis for diagnoses
that often lead to surgical solutions. Dr. Kachmann believes that the missing element
in this technology-focused approach is the failure to account for the incredible
power the mind has over a person’s well-being.
“We are dedicated to bringing wellness to the community,” states Dr. Kachmann. “I
believe that the vast majority of people who go to a doctor are actually in need
of a coach. It is interesting that the Latin origin of the word “doctor” means “teacher,”
and that is what we strive to do; teach people how to be healthy.”

The weather outside may have been frightful on December 7, 2012, but inside the grand
re-opening of the New Haven Depot, spirits of local residents were bright and jolly.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at 5:20 p.m. by the New Haven Area Heritage Association
to officially re-open the New Haven Depot to the public. According to Allison Adams,
President of the New Haven Area Heritage Association, the group acquired the facility
in 1988 and it has been a labor of love driving the association’s members for almost
25 years that led to Friday’s depot opening.
The New Haven Depot was originally built in the late 1880’s and is listed on the
National Register of Historic Places. With this in mind, the Association took extraordinary
care in maintaining the building’s original integrity during the restoration process,
while adding a few modern upgrades such as ceiling fans, handicap accessible restrooms,
lighting, and a heating and cooling system.
The small but mighty Association received a Federal grant that helped pay for 80%
of the near $1,000,000 price tag to complete the restoration project and move the
building from its original location on ground level to a new foundation a short distance
away on the same lot. The Association had to raise the remaining 20% of funds required
to complete the project, and they did this primarily by securing grants from area
The end result is the newly completed trail head of the New Haven Community Trails.
While future usage of the New Haven Depot is yet to be determined, Mayor Terry McDonald
says, “My hope for the Depot is that the New Haven Area Heritage Association and
the Parks and Rec department will be able to keep this facility busy throughout the
5TH ANNUAL K OF C DINNER SUPPORTS FOUNTAIN OF FAITH CLINIC
Over the past 5 years the Knights of Columbus Council 10043 in Hicksville Ohio has
helped support the Fountain of Faith Free Clinic which was started by Dr. Wiley,
local doctor, and his wife Susan, who is a nurse. The council each year has put on
a free will donation dinner to help support the clinic. Over these years the council
has raised over $9300 to help people who have low or no income with no insurance.
Each dinner has averaged $1860 for just a few hours work. The turnout for help from
the K of C council is overwhelming and the Hicksville community is very generous.
The council are very grateful to all who help and support this annual charity event.
Fellow Knight, Deacon Joe Timbrook, is at the clinic when it is open to help and
assist people who are in need of spiritual and physical help. The community is very
blessed with great people who contribute and help with this ministry.
