See the Ohio Department of Natural Resources website for more rules and regulations.


Hunting Safety

Safety should be a top priority when hunting and there are several important things to keep in mind to ensure a safe hunting experience:

  • Always wear blaze orange or other brightly colored clothing: This is a requirement in many hunting areas and it makes it easier for other hunters to spot you and avoid accidentally shooting you.
  • Know your target and what is beyond it: Make sure you positively identify your target as a legal game before shooting and always be aware of what is beyond your target in case of a miss or a ricochet.
  • Keep the safety on at all times until you are ready to shoot: this helps to avoid accidental discharge of the firearm.
  • Have a plan in case of an emergency and make sure everyone in your hunting party is aware of it.
  • Be aware of the weather forecast and the expected conditions, prepare accordingly and always carry enough supplies in case of an unexpected change of weather or an emergency.
  • Always use caution when handling and transporting firearms and always follow the manufacturer's instructions


Please Read & Understand:

  • All shots resulting in evidence of a wounded animal will warrant payment in full, even if the animal is not recovered. If no shot is taken or no evidence of a wounded animal, no additional payment will be required above the deposit.
  • A Non-Refundable Deposit is required for ALL hunts. If an animal is NOT harvested, the deposit WILL BE applied to a hunt scheduled the following year.
  • Rescheduling of hunts for wounded animals or hunts with no-shot opportunities will be at the ranch's discretion and on a case-by-case basis. We are not required to reschedule.
  • Rescheduled hunts will warrant a daily lodging fee and guide fee.


Guides are included; however, gratuities are greatly appreciated.

  • Alcohol consumption after the hunt only! NO exceptions
