COLUMBUS Ohio's popular deer-gun season will again run an additional weekend, Dec. 15 and 16, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The extra days were added beginning in 2006 in response to comments received from hunters for more weekend time to hunt. "These two additional weekend days were a great success last year and were helpful to us in meeting our deer management goals," said David M. Graham, chief of the Division of Wildlife. So far this season, hunters have taken 53,982 deer during the first six weeks of the statewide archery season, which began Sept. 30 and continues through Feb. 3. The special youth season, held Nov. 17 and 18, resulted in young hunters bagging a record 10,515 deer.

Congratulations, you got one! A fine 12 point, maybe a fat forky, or a sleek doe, it doesn't matter because you're now smiling into a freezer loaded with good eating venison. Your wife might not be smiling, though, as she wonders how one fixes deer meat. Lots of answers to that question. The vital point to keep in mind for house fraus or cooking bachelors is that deer meat when properly dressed and butchered is quite similar to beef. It has a slightly different "wild taste" that I like very much, as will you, and it's a fine, healthy, low-fat meat unless you had the meat cutter fill your deer burger with beef suet. So, anything you can do with beef can be done with venison. Lots of it is truly simple. For example, take a pound of venison burger, chop up a little onion in it, add a touch of Worcestershire sauce, then form into patties and fry. Add pickle, more onion, mustard and catsup on a hamburger bun, and eat. Sound familiar? Deerburger makes a fine sloppy joe. too, using either your own recipe or just frying some and adding sloppy joe mix from the supermarket. And don't forget other hamburger recipes like chili, spaghetti and stuffed peppers. Venison works fine for these.

Norwalk Mayor Sue Lesch said a retail business at the Giant Eagle site probably makes more sense than a new fire station. Giant Eagle, along with the GetGo fuel and convenience store in front of the supermarket, will close Feb. 2, the Reflector learned today. "That's a suggestion I've received often," Lesch said about the idea of locating a new fire station on the property. "I suppose anything's possible. I don't think it's likely." She said a team is looking at a site for a new fire station, but they are not close to making any recommendations to city council.
