Guess it all boils down to what you're going hunting for in the first place. Obviously, bringing something home to put into the freezer is the top priority. But if it's the comraderie that is just as important, then you should stay right where you're at and wait to see what shows up in your rifle scope.

But that's just my opinion. Anyone else care to put in their $.02 worth???
Im with you on this one,plus starting over is a real hassle.What about making upgrades to the property,food plots ,cover etc to create better deer habitat

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

It 's hard to make a decision like that after making so many memories with friends . How ever new memories are yours for the making in Ohio . I say expand your horizons and start a new chapter in your hunting adventures. A wise man (MarkTwain) once said you will be more dissapointed in twenty years by the things that you did not do rather than the things that you did. Good luck and go with your gut feeling, it works for me.

Mark Twain must not have made many bad decisions.

ronn, we have guys from Ohio, NC, the NC guys wouldn't come to Ohio to hunt. I don't have a crystal ball to know what the hunting will be in a couple of years but its went downhill for several years now. The tough part is having built the camp and formed a lifetime friendship. I'm at a loss as to what I'm going to do. I may be able to split hunts a couple in Ohio and 1-2 in PA but that would lower the purpose of buying lease property in Ohio. At least I have some time to think. I have set my bow trip to PA for November after that who knows. Maybe its time to pay some big bucks in search for out of state big bucks!

Good luck locating something, my son and i have been on line looking also, SE of Columbus. I have co-workers who hunt that area and harvest some nice bucks. Ronn, take a look around the Tappan Lake area of ESE Ohio, I personally know a couple of guys that have lease property around the lake that take some awsome bucks.

thanks hm. i'll check it out. i have a friend thats from columbus and his dad worked for the state helping out the farmers, so he knows a lot of the farmers in that part of ohio. neither my friend or his father hunts so its never been on their minds. I on the other hand, its on my mind 24/7.
