I think you need the plug to hunt deer in Ohio but I am not positive.
Yep. FIL doing a trophy hunt out there this year so we read up on the deer code one night because we were bored. They've got some weird laws like only 1 hunting implement allowed per hunter. If you're carrying a rifle and your CCP you can't shoot anything with your sidearm. So I guess if a hog starts tearing into your leg you have to find a way to level the rifle at them LOL! (I think I'd just take the fine on this one if there was a wildlife agent that was a D-bag enough to write it up.)
The shotgun rule was weird too. Must be 10 gauge or less, only capable of holding 3 shells and 1 BALL PER BARREL?! No buck shot in potatoeville! ROFL!
