Best Hunting in Ohio

The best hunting in Ohio is often found in Coshocton County, which is a huge hunting hub in the state. As a state leader in deer harvests each year (for over 10 years!), hunters from across the Midwest flock to Coshocton to be the first ones on the ground at the start of each season.

The most popular public hunting ground is Woodbury Wildlife Area, located about 10 miles west of the City of Coshocton, on OH-541. Access to the area is available on a number of state routes including OH-16, OH-36, and OH-60, as well. Woodbury is the largest public area in the state. At 19,050 acres, this area offers space for hunters, birders, fishermen, hikers, and all outdoor lovers!

Speaking of space, there are endless lodging options within the county for every kind of traveler! From cabins and campgrounds to hotels, motels, and bed-and-breakfasts, you’ll undoubtedly find your favorite. The Cabin at Woodbury is conveniently located just outside of the Woodbury Wildlife Area, and includes all the amenities needed for a private, comfortable stay. On the flip side, the Roscoe Hillside Cabins are just outside of Roscoe Village, within walking distance of shopping, dining, and historic attractions, for a fun-filled visit! Roscoe Village is a restored canal-era town, perfect for the whole family to enjoy! Coshocton Village Inn & Suites is just a half-mile over the new bridge from Roscoe Village and is one of the premier hotels in the area, as well.
