I do hunt Grand River . Have pretty much lost all of my private land in this area due to leases.

Can't blame the farmers, they gotta make money.

same here jake . starting to loose my private land but only to the passing of the farmer & then when the kids get it in their control bam they sell it to realator's . used to have a dozen farms to hunt on right now it's down to 3 & after this year it may only be 1 farm & it's 50 acres. how many guys can hunt on this & be comfomtable? maybe 3 at the extreme most. one of the farms i hunt on i'm kinda the care taker , i cut trees's& vines in the spring.he's 75 yrs young & still works as for a living. owns his own trucking co. but lease's farm to another farmer.

It's crazy how quickly it's all changed here.
​​​​​​I used to have farmers pass my number around and their friends would call me, because they knew I'd come out and shoot does. Allot of hunters wanted to hunt all year after big bucks but wouldn't impact the doe population. So they'd let me come out to tag out on doe.

But not anymore. The leases have ended all of that.

I've always said if you treat people and their property with respect and help out when you're able, you'll have no trouble finding places to hunt.

That seems to not be holding true for me lately. But still a good rule to live by.

I don't mind hunting public land, I primarily still hunt anyway and it is nice to have a large chunk of land to do that.

Hope this new property works out for you! What county is it in?

tom, like jake has said, hunting around here is just as bad as Ohio. too many leases and posted ground. we used to hunt all the ground from the Avonmore bridge to Maysville, but not anymore. everything from Saltsburg to Clarksburg is posted too. it really ticked me off when the girl scouts got the land and used money from the united way to buy it. then posted it tight.

jake it is in lorain county same county i basically hunt but it is due north west aprox 20 miles from where i hunt now. his property runs parallel to the ohio turn pike
mr slim glad to see you back yeah you talking about the girl scout property across the river ? what schengost did was a sin people cliamed he gave that property to the girl scout onlly to find out that the goverment bought it for them for some outrageous fee. also the crew's property was a good place to hunt but now leases it to a pittsbugh sportsman club.we used to help sam & wayne in the summer with hay & etc . jim can't even hunt it anymore . just sad to see this happen. it's actually becoming a rich man's sport.lefties place is posted & the people who bought my uncle andy believe it was andrea's got it posted or leased. can you still hunt down in drummon's old place behind the football field .? good talking to you guy's
