    ODNR official fired for fudging the numbers.

    OK it's DMRM not DoW. Makes you wonder what his motive was? Why did Ohio's state geologist get fired? Just as the Utica deep-shale oil and gas play is getting started in Ohio, bringing with it megalithic economic, political and environmental consequences, one of the state's top...

    What changes if any to the Deer regs would you recommend to the ODNR?

    We have seen the report showing an 11% decrease in harvest for the first 6 weeks of archery this season compared to 2010. The season results for last year were down 8% from 2009 from what I recall. If this season concludes down at the same decrease the first 6 weeks have shown, the deer...

    First ODNR referral

    I was sitting here reading up on my TOO buddies and got a Phone call from a guy here in town. Seems he is the caretaker at the cemetery and had a problem with a young coon. He called around to the sheriff who said the WO for the county was on vacation this week so they gave him the number for...

    SOS From The ODNR.

    I have to admit though... I thought i heard it all.... I expected the same old "weather" excuse.. And the same old "Food excuse"... BUT Citing Squirrel road kill totals being down as an excuse as to why deer harvests are down predominantly statewide is a new one.. Why does the tap dancing...

    New head of the ODNR

    Well his focus will probably not be on the DoW. COLUMBUS, Ohio - Rolling out the welcome mat for businesses, Governor-elect John Kasich tapped a former American Electric Power executive and an Indiana bureaucrat to head the state's natural resources and environmental agencies. "They send a...
