Anglers and hunters are reminded that it's time to purchase 2008-2009 fishing and hunting licenses. The 2007-08 licenses expire February 29. New licenses can be purchased at vendor outlets across the state and at wildohio.com on the Internet after February 15, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

New licenses are valid March 1, 2008 through February 28, 2009. Hunters, especially those gearing up for the popular spring wild turkey season, are reminded that licenses purchased now are also valid during the 2008 fall hunting season.

Resident hunting and fishing licenses cost $19 each; deer and turkey permits are an additional $24 each. Hunters age 17 and under and some Ohio senior citizens are eligible for discounted licenses. A one-day Ohio fishing license costs $11, an amount that can later be applied to the purchase of an annual license. Complete listings of license prices are available in current copies of the Ohio Hunting Regulations, the Ohio Fishing Regulations, or at wildohio.com.
