Default Ohio deer hunting

i guess this is the best section to post this. Looking for any one that has been with an outfitter in Ohio they would recommend for whitetail. I have hunted great places out west and i think ohio has alot to offer. i am looking for top end deer (170 plus). dont care about the lodging just best hunt. thanks in advance.

Quest haven lodge. A buddy hunted there last year and shot a 277 he had video of bigger ones walking in front of him.

4 legged deer or two legged dear's? Not sure Ohio has any "outfitter's". It ain't Montana. I think Kentucky has a few though , if that's of any interest.

Personally, I prefer the two legged ones that has their skin already tanned , lol

Are you talking about a high fence or fair chase?

170 is a pretty aggressive requirement

The owner breeds whitetail deer.
He bought the top genetics from across the country to develop a doe herd second to none.
Quest Haven Lodge,is a camping ministry and Christian Retreat Center.
Advertised as a "preserve".

The Rules of Fair Chase

The term “Fair Chase” shall not include the taking of animals under the following conditions:
While inside escape-proof fenced enclosures.


Fair chase? There free-ranging behind a high fence

I have hunted southern Ohio for a number of years during the week long gun season on relatives property. There are some huge deer there. If I am not mistaken a friend is looking at that same outfitter and they are reasonable...

decent salesman defending his product. still not fair chase. part of the thrill of killing a stud in fair chases is the fact that the buck survived neighbors that shoot anything before you killed him as a stud.


My gut says is acre/hunter # is not accurate as well, but I can't back that up.


after you go to their website it is obvious they are genetically jacked up deer.

I have no clue about their hunter success rate, but they are certainly in the right part of Ohio.

I own a farm in sw ohio and yes we do have some giant whitetails . The best bet to shoot something big is ( bow oct. 30 / nov. 15 ) the normal rut . The next best time is late muzzleloader over food plots (turnips ,oats ) or left standing corn or soy beans . The colder it gets the better. The big guys like that darkness and only come out in daylight when they want some or need food badly.I have killed 140/ to 170 on my place and have sheds and pics. from a 23 point that scores well over 200" .Sorry only me and my boy are the only ones that hunt my place . Good luck .
