 ODNR WILL HOLD SPECIAL DEER HUNT AT PLUM BROOK
 EARLY TEAL SEASON PROPOSED
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ohio Department of Natural Resources' (ODNR) Division of Wildlife will again issue a limited number of special deer hunting permits this fall for the Plum Brook NASA facility in Sandusky County. The controlled hunts will be held Oct. 23, 24, 30, 31 and Nov. 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21.
 Applicants must apply with a partner and no one may apply more than once. At least one of the partners must be 21 or older. Applicants must obtain an Ohio hunting license and deer permit. One hunter from each pair will be chosen to take an anterless deer; the other partner may take a deer of either sex. Applications will be accepted only from Aug. 1-31.
 To apply, write both hunters' names, dates of birth, addresses and the desired hunting date (list only one) on a postcard no larger than 4-by-6-inches. This postcard must be mailed to: Plum Brook Hunt, 1840 Belcher Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43224-1329.
 Only successful applicants will be notified. All Special Management Anterless Deer Permits will be valid at these hunts. The Plum Brook hunts are accessible to people with disabilities.
 The Division of Wildlife, in cooperation with NASA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal Damage Control Unit, authorizes the hunts periodically to help control the growing deer herd at the Plum Brook facility.
 EARLY TEAL SEASON PROPOSED
 The Division of Wildlife will also offer a proposal to the Wildlife Council at its July 30 meeting to conduct a nine-day teal hunting season in early September. The proposal is in accordance with guidelines established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
 If approved, it will mark the first time since 1987 that a special early teal season has been offered. Beginning in 1988, the early teal hunting seasons were not offered because of declining numbers of these migratory birds.
 Teal are migratory waterfowl. The blue-winged teal, which is the most common of the teal species in Ohio, is a very early migrant.
 "Teal numbers have recovered sufficiently enough in the past couple of years to safely allow a season," said the Division of Wildlife's Wildlife Management Administrator, Patrick Ruble. "As a result, the Fish and Wildlife Service has included a limited early teal season in September as part of the 1992-93 migratory game bird hunting season framework."
 Preliminary national figures put the teal population at 4.4 million birds, which is above the long-term average. The proposed season would be held nine days in September with a daily bag limit of four birds.
