    I have no idea but it's massive. Like tens of thousands of acres. Probably hundreds of thousands.

    I love the idea of erbody having the option to jump around and was totally on board with that just to clarify. I just look forward to the trip, getting to hang out with bow hunting junkies like myself, hunting, drinking, telling lies and all that. And I know that I personally won't be able to stay more than a few days, so it limits me a bit. It just keeps shifting locations seemingly. Lol.

    I was on the KY Fish and Game website today and it looks like NR tags have increased quite a bit. $150 for the base license and $185 for deer tags. So that means OH is about $80 cheaper than KY. That's about how much of @virginiashadow 's beer I plan to drink.

    Just something to consider.

    So have we re-re-re settled on OH? $80 isn't something to sneeze at.

    As a non-resident who has hunted Ohio the last 4 or 5 years I have seen some increases in the last few. It looks as if 2019 is going to be no exception. If I read it right the cost for non-resident license and deer tag will be somewhere around $260.00 Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. But if that's true, it would be an $80 increase over last year.

    If I go I'm not scouting but the day of. Then I'm picking a spot as far deep as I can. Like 2 to 3 miles and will only hunt in the afternoon. So if you want to hunt like this, you and I can enjoy a long walk together and possibly an intimate candlelight dinner after we drag a deer for 15, 000 feet.

    I'm looking at about 700 miles of road for SE Ohio and that's fine. 80 bucks gets me enough beer for a few days and fresh broadheads. Or 80 bucks of beer! My slick tricks are still sharp and plus noods has another person to mooch beer off of.

    think you misunderstand the expression- I'm saying $80 is a chunk of change large enough to take into consideration. Meaning I'd lean towards OH because it's cheaper.
    looks like there's a ton of options in SE Ohio. I don't know the area well enough to just say "we should go here."
    Just based on size of the game areas; I'd lean towards maybe Crown City Wildlife Area to the South, Vinton Furnace or Wayne NF to the center-ish.

    But again, that's literally just looking at the map. Anyone familiar with the area please chime in.

    Lake Alma state park. Pretty sure it was already brought up. I cant really look into it at the moment as far as cost, distance etc but it seems like a good starting point. Anybody?

    Canoes and kayaks look solid in some of these places with limited foot trail access. Quiet approach

    So are you allowed to camp right in the Wayne? Or do you need to be in a camp ground in ohio?
