TWO KILLED DURING OHIO DEER HUNTING SEASON

COLUMBUS (AP) -- At least eleven hunters were shot and two died of their wounds during Ohio's week-long deer-gun season that ended Sunday.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is still collecting data from around the state, but spokeswoman Jane Beathard confirmed those eleven incidents. One hunter was killed in Marion County last Tuesday when shot by a member of his own hunting party and the second was killed Saturday when apparently hit by a stray bullet in Ashtabula County.

Last year during gun season, one person was killed and nine injured.

The state expected Ohio hunters to kill 140,000 to 145,000 deer during the week of hunting.

Ohio has more than one million acres of land open for public hunting.
