that being said, I keep seeing “opportunity for residents”. Come on out to Ohio. For less than $300 you can go hunt as much as you want on our limited public land. You’ll see a big reason why some travel to hunt out west.
One day I'll make it out there to hunt the Wayne where my dad shot his 10 point years ago. I wish there was more public land/access advocacy out east. People acted like driving out to the national forest was unfathomable and that the quality was chopped liver growing up in NC and VA.
