I cannot comment on Ohio's law. However, let me correct one significant statement you made. The "Castle Doctrine" only applies within one's dwelling. It does not apply on your property, although other laws and legal concepts are certainly relevant there. This is important because, for example, in a given state an individual may have the duty to retreat – given withdrawal is possible – on their property, but not in their residence.
