Let me guess, Your going to UNOH so you can be a bad ass mechanic?? I donated over 20K to that stupid place before I told them to kick rocks. 90 % of the instructors are grads from the college and have never worked in a shop in their life. They are teaching you on outdated equipment. 99% of the students are idiots. Couldn't find you a crescent wrench if they had to. The whole school is a joke. Then once they get you there they will say OH you have student loans?!? Why don't you take out a extra 3 grand every session so you can get a refund check back that you can blow on useless college kid crap. (I was smart enough not to do this). They are all con artist. If you want to learn something, stay home and find a good shop willing to show you the ropes, you will learn leaps and bounds more from a good tech in a real life shop than you will at that chit hole.
If your going for something totally differnt, I have no advice. Just want to warn you before you come up here. Not trying to slam you by any means either. Assuming you start in August when the entire town gets molested by rusted out junk loud vehicles?
As far as duck hunting, check out the reservoirs in Lima, like Mike said. I have hunted them a couple times, usually can kill a few ducks. No gas motors though, all electric.
Bring some goose decoys and a layout, go haggle some farmers.
