I just returned from my Ohio deer hunting lease. I have 93 acres in Miegs County. It is an awesome piece of ground with a couple of funnels that are sure to produce during the rut.
I was out there for a few days to hang treestands and cut shooting lanes, as well as, check the trail cameras I had put out back in August. Here are a couple of picks of the Ohio buck I have my sights on!
He was coming in to eat the deer attractant that I put in front of the trail cam.
Like I said, there are some great funnels on this Ohio deer hunting lease.
One is a saddle between two ridges and it seems like every deer trail on the property eventually goes through that saddle. I’ve got 2 sets in that saddle, one for a south wind and one for a north wind. I’m pretty confident that a buck will fall from one of those stands.
The other funnel is really cool. It’s a waterfall! Yes, it drops about 25 feet straight down into a deep ravine. The deer have no choice but to cross the top of the falls. That is where the buck above is pictured. I need an east wind to hunt this spot and if I get that wind direction, the spot is almost foolproof.
I also have a set overlooking a bedding area. We call that the bees nest stand… Yea, my eye was actually swollen shut! Literally put blood, sweat and tears into that one!
Lastly, there is a set on the ridge all the way at the back of the property. It’s difficult to access because it is so far from the road, but it will be a great place to spend all day in a stand during the rut!
Ohio Deer Hunting Lease Still Available
I found my Ohio deer hunting lease through a friend of mine by the name of Jerry Meyer. Jerry is a wildlife biologist retired from the state of Ohio. He has a vast amount of knowledge and also some great properties for lease.
If you are interested in an Ohio deer hunting lease, you can find them at Jerry’s website, huntdeerinohio.com. At last check he still had leases available for this season.
He also has Ohio land that he does managed hunts on, if that is something you are interested in.
I’m extremely happy with my Ohio deer hunting lease and the service provided by Jerry Meyer.
