That's what I'm thinking. I go the other way when I want to kill deer or ducks.
I need about tree fiddy.

Ohio gun season lasts one week with 500,000 hunters. We also get one bonus weekend. State parks draw the biggest crowds.

Most big deer that are taken are scouted over weeks and months on private land. We have a lot of deer and a lot of pressure.

I wouldn't make the trip to Salt Fork State park thinking I'd have a good shot at big deer. And definitely wouldn't thinking there's ample opportunity for ducks.

I would be afraid of being shot at though.

Salt Fork is in the North Zone. But you're right - I don't know. By the time either zone opens gun season on deer will be full swing so not sure what the plan is.

timmer,

I wouldent ask for advice here in the ohio forum if you read nearly every post, people will tell you how bad hunting in ohio is, and how there are no birds, or deer, and how there are to many hunters. and i live in Ohio! I would say just go down and check it out, you cant kill anything unless your there. People are to worked up that you will kill the birds they are after. What people forget is, that birds and deer are not owned by them and they have no control, its the feds that own the birds and its everyones right to hunt them. So you will hear everyone here in Ohio say there isnt anything here, but then brag about how good they did this weekend. If you have the passion to go out there, then just try and you will have a better idea at what your looking at. Now its likely people will read this and tell me how wrong i am and will get all butt hurt over reading this, just because they "know it all because they have been hunting here since jesus was knee high to a grass hopper". Ohio produces alot of nice deer, and a decent amount of birds if the weather is right. There are many places to hunt you just have to be at the right spot, and may have to knock on a few doors, and be willing to be out early to beat other hunters to the spot. Like i said no one owns the birds if you get in a spot before someone that has hunted that spot for 90 years then tough for them they cant do anything about it if you are doing it legally. I have no problem undercutting someone for birds if i have permission and or get there earlier on public ground, and dont think they wouldent do the same thing to you.

All I can say in living here also is that I would NOT go to Salt Fork State park for either ducks or deer. I don't now so am hardly hiding or protecting my secret public spots on this thread.
