This site is intended to provide unbiased interpretation of available data regarding the white-tail deer population and proposed culling program in Ottawa Hills, Ohio. Note that we retained a lot of information on this site from the referendum campaign five - or was it six - years ago. We believe that as far as the village demographics and the deer themselves are concerned, nothing has really changed since then. There is no reason to implement bowhunting here and some important reasons to not.
We believe that without a coordinated effort by all of the areas surrounding the village, that a solo culling effort in Ottawa Hills will not have an impact on the deer population or the consequences of living with deer in the community. We also feel that the population numbers and other statements put forth to support the proposed culling effort do not demonstrate a need for a culling program, that the facts show that the initiative to implement a bow-hunting program will not produce a satisfactory result or be cost-effective, and that there are more effective alternatives available.
Please review our "Myths and Facts" and "The Truth About Bowhunting." Please send us an email to request a "No Hunting in the Village" sign for your yard. Discuss this issue with your neighbors. Also please review our "News" link for the latest information available.
