A “Commercial Bird Shooting Preserve” is an area of land where game birds are released and hunted by shooting, as authorized by a commercial bird shooting preserve license obtained under ORC 1533.71, 1533.72, 1533.73, 1533.77 and OAC 1501:31-31-02.
Commercial Bird Shooting Preserve Permits are areas, approved by the Division of Wildlife, for year-round hunting of game birds legally acquired or propagated. A hunting license is not required to hunt approved game birds on these areas, other than wild turkeys. The permit has an annual fee of $200. A minimum of 500 game birds must be released on the preserve annually.
