ORC Hunting – Message to State Rep

Quick message to my new state rep trying to get airgun hunting legalized here for large game:

 

Good Afternoon!
Congratulations on taking office yesterday.

ORC presently does not allow for hunting deer with air guns. With smaller air guns, that makes sense from an ethical hunting standpoint (same reason, I assume, a minimum draw weight is defined for archery). But there are rather powerful air guns available — and I’d love to be able to hunt deer with something like an 50-cal AirForce Texan CF. There are other states that permit hunting big game with an air gun — and I’d encourage you to see about getting similar legislation enacted in Ohio.

Thank you for your time,
–Lisa

Food Plot Ideas

I want to plant some food plots around our property this upcoming year. Chufa looks like a cool, unique plant to add. Something we can eat too — and it can attract both deer and turkeys. https://gamekeepersclub.com/p-245-turkey-gold-chufa.aspx (25 lbs)

There are two heirloom dent corns I’d like to grow — https://www.southernexposure.com/products/hickory-cane-dent-corn/ and https://www.victoryseeds.com/corn_pencil-cob.html. A few patches of hull-less oats would be cool, and maybe some alfalfa.
