1. Timing is Everything
All youth hunters must be accompanied by an adult. However, during a designated youth-hunting event or season, generally a couple of weekends around the time of a regular hunting season, the accompanying adult cannot hunt nor have any hunting implements on his or her person, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

2. Special Events
The state conducts controlled waterfowl and deer hunts for youth at different times and places around the state. Valid hunting licenses are required. Hunt participation is determined by lottery, Applications for which are accepted all during June and July on the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife website.

Also, young hunters with valid licenses get priority on opening day afternoon waterfowl hunts at various wildlife areas around the state. Young hunters at these events must be accompanied by a non-hunting adult. The ODNR Division of Wildlife page has updated details each year.

3. Hunting on Personal Land
If you want to hunt on land you own, or live on and farm, you, your spouse, and your children can hunt without licenses. If you're a non-Ohio resident who owns Ohio land, you, your spouse, and your children can hunt on that land if the state in which you live has a similar arrangement with Ohio, according to the ODNR. If you're a member of a limited liability corporation, or beneficiary or trustee of a trust that owns a piece of land, provided that the limited liability company or trust has three or fewer members, you count as a landowner.

4. Safety First
Ohio requires all hunters, especially during deer season, to wear a vest, coat, jacket, or coverall that is solid hunter orange or camouflage-pattern hunter orange. This applies on private land as well as public land. Clothes that are only partially orange are not allowed. The ODNR website includes a helpful set of photos to show what's allowable and what's not.
