Monday was opening day for Ohio's deer-gun season.

Hunters in the Buckeye State are expected to harvest an estimated 85,000 deer.

In some communities, like Mentor, urban hunting has been going on since early October.

Many communities in Northeast Ohio allow bow hunting in their city limits to help manage deer populations.

Ohio Division of Wildlife officer Jesse Janosik said "It's population control. It's just like hunting out here. It's regulated through us, it works."

In some communities where urban hunting is allowed, police departments have seen up to a 400 percent drop in deer-vehicle accidents.
