Mentored Deer Hunt – November November 3 OR 4, 2018

Maumee Valley Chapter of the NWTF is proud to announce that we will be holding our first ever multi-session hunting program. The dates range from September to November and will culminate in a mentored deer hunt on Nov. 3rd & 4th, 2018 at Maumee Bay State Park.

Due to the decline of hunters across the country, we felt a need to hold a program to get new hunters into the field and provide them with the knowledge they will need to continue to hunt after. This program is intended for people 19 years and older that have not hunted or that have limited hunting experience.

Applications are due Sept. 5th, 2018 / Applicants will be drawn on Sept. 12th, 2018


Session 1: Why Hunt?

Session 2: A Day at the Range
– Oct. 17th, 2018 from 6 – 9 pm
* Material covered will include: crossbow safety and parts, range safety, and time on the archery range at Cleland’s Outdoor World.

Session 3: A Day in the Woods
– Oct. 20th, 2018 from 9 am – 12 pm
* Material covered will include finding a spot to hunt, deer sign, setting up, and woodsmanship at Oak Openings Metropark: 4139 Girdham Road, Swanton, Ohio, 43558

Session 4: Mentored Deer Hunt
– Nov.3rd & Nov. 4th, 201
* Participants will have the opportunity to go on a mentored deer hunt, learn about field dressing, processing, and tracking at Maumee Bay State Park, 1400 State Park Road Oregon, Ohio

Priority 1
Be at least 19 years of age and have no previous hunting experience. Applicants in this category will be given the highest priority

Priority 2
Be at least 19 years of age and have limited lifetime hunting experience.
(Limited lifetime hunting experience is considered hunting less than 5 times in your lifetime. Applicants in this category will be given second priority and will only be selected in the event there are open spots not filled by priority 1 applicants.)

Priority 3
Be at least 19 years of age and have limited previous hunting experience.
(Limited previous hunting experience is considered as hunting less than five occasions in the last five years.
Applicants in this category will be given third priority and will only be selected in the event that there are open spots not filled by priority 1 or priority 2 applicants.)

Priority 4
Be under the age of 19 and have no previous hunting experience. Applicants in this category will be given fourth priority and will only be selected in the event that there are open spots not filled by priority 1, priority 2, or priority 3 applicants.

‘Wheelin’ Sportsmen’ Deer Hunt – November 10 & 11, 2018

We feel extremely blessed to hold 2 deer hunts at Maumee Bay State Park. The first weekend in November, Nov. 4th & 5th, we hold a “Wheelin’ Sportsmen” hunt. This hunt is designed for folks with disabilities. We are here to encourage and support these hunter’s desires to be in the woods. Whether they no longer hunt due to a disability or think they can no longer hunt, we would like to enable them.

The morning starts off with a lite breakfast. After introductions and a safety meeting, hunters and their guides will be taken to their blinds by a volunteer. A hot lunch is provided whenever the hunter / guide decides to come in for a break. Hunting is from sunrise to sunset & many hunters come in for lunch & go right back out. At the end of the day all hunters / guides will be escorted back to the shelter house.

Successfully drawn applicant names will be posted to this website. Those folks drawn for this hunt will also be called by one of our volunteers. We will confirm your participation in the hunt and discuss any pertinent information regarding the hunt during said call.

*This is a 2-day hunt. If you are drawn for the hunt, you will be able to hunt both Saturday & Sunday.

 *This is a Bow Only Hunt
