In 1951 deer hunting season was closed in Ohio. In 1952 only 27 counties allowed hunting and only 450 deer kills were recorded.
In the 1950’s Ohio re-introduced the White-tailed Deer from populations out of state
These hunters provide income to the state in tourism and licensing fees
Even with the staggering number of deer harvested the population continues to grow
These collisions resulted in 859 human injuries
Of the collisions 8 were fatal to humans. Fatalities for the deer are significantly higher.
