Controlled deer hunt lottery Aug. 27 at Lowe-Volk Park


LEESVILLE —The Crawford Park District will have its hunting lottery for the Sandusky Wildlife Area, Sears Woods State Nature Preserve and Carmean Woods State Nature Preserve on Sunday, Aug. 27 at 1:00pm.

The lottery drawing, along with a mandatory orientation session, will be at the Lowe-Volk Park Nature Center. To be eligible for a permit to hunt in the Sandusky Wildlife Area, you must be a Crawford County resident.

Because of damage caused by the deer herd within Sears Woods State Nature Preserve and Carmean Woods State Nature Preserve, there will be a controlled deer hunt in the preserves open to any licensed hunter, not just Crawford County residents. The lottery drawing for both properties will take place immediately following the orientation meeting. Attendance at this orientation is mandatory to participate in the hunting lotteries.

Hunters should arrive at the Nature Center 20 to 30 minutes in advance of the meeting to look over the information sheet and enter choices into the drawing for the lottery. Permits for the Sandusky Wildlife Area will be given for youth deer and youth wild turkey as well as squirrel, dove, wild turkey, deer primitive, deer archery and deer gun.

The Sandusky Wildlife Area is at 2035 River Road, west of Bucyrus. Sears Woods State Nature Preserve and Carmean Woods State Nature Preserve are on Mount Zion Road, south of Bucyrus.

Permits for hunters will be issued on-site immediately after the lottery. No permits will be given out after Aug. 27. Hunters are required to bring their drivers license, state ID or current hunting license with them for identification purposes.

Call 419-683-9000 for information.
