Ohio Deer Hunting Lease

Ohio Deer Hunting Lease

Hey Everybody,

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 stands 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!

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.

John it sounds like you have been around the block a time or two. I found Jerry’s site awhile back and have yet to pull the trigger on a lease. Would you say Jerry’s site is as good as it gets when trying to obtain a lease or do you have similar luck with something like Base Camp Leasing?

Thanks
Cory

    Hey Cory,

    I have found Jerry to be very personable and extremely knowledgable about deer hunting land in Ohio. He is retired from the Ohio DNR and is very willing to walk the properties with you and share his knowledge freely.

    I highly recommend recommend working with him.

    Let me know how you make out!

I’m 62 with a disability that requires medacation to be administered every other day that must be done by a hunting partner usually my son Nathan 35 years old hunts with me. We are very interested in a year long lease that can be renewed. Neither of us have ever had a hunting violation in our lives. Also have a excellent reference from a land owner we have leased from for the last 8 years in Mi. Thank you for your consideration,Ron & Nathan Suszek

    Hi Ron and Nathan,

    You have to check huntdeerinohio.com for available leases. Leases become available after January as some hunters do not renew.

Wondering if the lease is available for 16-17 and is it an annual lease open to the full deer season? If so, I could be very interested!
Thanks
Jason

    Hi Ralph,

    I gave up the lease because I am moving and I’m not sure that I will be able to get out there in 2016.

        Hi Jack,

        Visit http://huntdeerinohio.com/ for leases. Most leases run through January, so that is when new ones become available as people do not renew.

        Hope this helps!
