Yes for someone else's land no for your own. If you do however shoot a deer and it runs off of your property on to another landowners then you need a license to pursue it.

It is my understanding that even land owners need license, just not deer tags. I could be wrong about that. Wouldn't be the first time I made a mitkase. Check with the DOW. Your counties Wildlife Officer's name and number are in the back of the regs and probably online at wildohio.com. Better to be sure than have your hunting priveleges revoked.
