 HIGHLIGHTS

School’s Out… schoolsout
Now Get Outside!

Do your parents ever tell you to “Go outside and play”? Just because school is out doesn’t mean you should stop learning! “The Great Outdoors” is a fun place to learn and summertime is the perfect time to explore nature. So turn off the TV and computer and get outside into the real world! Try these “wild” activities to get started on your very own outdoor adventure.

Unhatched Egg Report

As many peregrine falcon enthusiasts know, it has been confirmed that the Columbus Falcon nest has failed and the eggs have been removed. The eggs were evaluated and determined to be infertile.  However, this is normal that some or all of the eggs may not be fertile on a first-time nesting attempt if the female falcon is not fully mature. Check out updates by Division biologist Donna Daniel for the latest details about the Columbus  peregrines. There is a possibility of a second nesting attempt, so don’t forget to check the FalconCam!

Renovation postponed 
Due to technical difficulties, the launch of the Division of Wildlife’s new and improved website, originally scheduled for mid-May, has been postponed to a later date. The new site will highlight innovative online tools and features for
Ohio’s wildlife enthusiasts. With the click of a mouse, web visitors will have the ability to view live wildlife cams, explore and share wildlife photography, gain easier access to Ohio ’s license and regulation information, sign up for hunter education courses, and more! Stay tuned for details.

Dust off your tackle, pick up or download your license, and hit the water. You and Dad can finally slow down and catch-up with each other. Not sure where to go? Check out this special Father’s Day event taking place in Preble County.

 

Fish for a Grand Slam!
The Fish Ohio Grand Slam program recognizes three categories of anglers - those who fish Lake Erie, the Ohio River, or inland waters. Grand Slam anglers must catch three designated species from each body of water during the fishing license year (March 1, 2007 - February 29, 2008 ), using existing Fish Ohio lengths and species. Earning a Lake Erie Grand Slam will require anglers to catch a Fish Ohio walleye, smallmouth bass, and steelhead. To qualify for an Ohio River Grand Slam, anglers must catch a Fish Ohio sauger, hybrid striped bass, and flathead catfish. The Inland Grand Slam will require a Fish Ohio largemouth bass, saugeye, and muskie. Register your Grand Slam catches online!
