Being just a few hours from my home in southern Michigan, Ohio is an obvious out-of-state destination. I’ve hunted there a number of years and the state boasts some outstanding public land options. But those options require significant time and effort to hunt correctly. I’m not afraid to put the work in, but with limited days to hunt I simply didn’t have the time it would take to do it right, and so I secured a small lease of 40 acres. The property is covered in timber and is part of a substantial piece of roadless property that’s also primarily covered in timber.
