Default Nelsonville, Ohio Question

I was just wondering if anyone has hunted near Nelsonville, Ohio. It is located in the Wayne National Forest. A buddy of a buddy has invited us to archery hunt this coming weekend, but I have never been there. Dont know how smart it would be to leave my woods in western PA and hunt a woods im unfamiliar with. He claims they have setups and will be ready to hunt. I always here great things about southern Ohio, but dont know much about this area. Supposedly they hunt a private farm outside the gmae lands. Any info on the area would be great. Thanks in advance!!

We used to hunt near there about 15 years ago in jackson county there were a lot of nice deers but the paper company clear cut the land and spot wasnt very good after that..Probley a great spot specially if its private land..

I hunt about 10 miles south of Nelsonville on a small private farm and I will tell you that it will be worth the trip. I have not shot any huge bucks in the past 145" being my biggest, but for only going down for about 5-7 days out of the hunting season I do very well. I have seen alot of 130" - 160" bucks, its just hard to get them within bow range the way the farm I hunt is laid out. Anyways you won't regret it if the guy who invited you knows what hes doing and sets the stands in the right spots, but I will tell you you cannot go wrong with private land anywhere in Ohio, make sure you bring an extra stand incase you find a better location to make a set. Good luck and shoot straight.
