On Nov. 10, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources had a Hunter Safety course at the Masonic temple in Newcomerstown. ODNR Instructor Allen Fish provided boys and girls of all ages the basic knowledge and instructions on how to hunt safely. This course was a prerequisite to acquiring their hunting license. Just a reminder, regular deer shotgun season is Nov. 26 through Dec. 2, extra deer gun season weekend is Dec. 15-16, and muzzleloader season is Jan. 5 through Jan. 8.
