The Ohio Department of Natural Resources hosted 12 disabled American veterans for a guided archery hunt at Zaleski State Forest over the Oct. 9-11 weekend. The ODNR divisions of Forestry and Wildlife partnered with the Buckeye Hero Hunt Committee, Ohio Department of Veterans Services and volunteer groups to provide this opportunity for Ohio's veterans to hunt white-tailed deer.

"This is an opportunity that ODNR is honored to be able to support for the men and women that have proudly served our country," said Robert Boyles, ODNR deputy director and state forester. "We are proud to partner with the Buckeye Hero Hunt Committee for our Ohio veterans who have sacrificed so much for us."
