COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Hunters in Ohio checked more than 9,400 deer in the two-day gun season this week.


The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says it was the first time since 2012 the state has held a two-day gun season after the initial weeklong gun season in early December. That year, more than 14,300 deer were killed in the two days.


The number taken this year on Monday and Tuesday are expected to account for slightly more than 5 percent of all deer harvested this season.


Hunters still have a chance to pursue deer this winter. Muzzleloader season is Jan. 9 to Jan. 12, and archery season remains open through Feb. 7.


Hunters checked 73,399 deer during the seven-day gun season that ended Dec. 6.
