sorry to hear about you losing your hunting land, I know how that feels. Coshocton has TONS of public land and especially during bow season, the chances of you encountering another person while hunting are slim to none and there are some nice deer that come out of the area. It may not be the closest of places but it's not extremely far if you're in Canton. Give that a shot and than do what I did, come spring time start knocking on doors and ask if you can take care of the farmer's ground hogs. Shoot a bunch of them, get good with the farmer and fill them in on the hog elimination and 5 out of 10 of them will let you come back and deer hunt. Good luck!

Fisha is right, during bow season you hardly run into anyone. I use to hunt AEP in Coshocton and only seen a few vehicles here and there. I would not go there during gun season. That area is 45 minutes from Canton and I use to take my camper for a few days and camped in Wills Creek at the store. Also hunted Atwood up the hill from the cemetery on rt542, 30 minutes, never seen anyone during bow. I have a place I go right behind my house, 20 minutes I'm up a tree, but I won't tell you where I live.

Access to private land in Stark County is hard to come by. I own 10 acres in Canton Twp. that I hunt after work but it's just big enough for me and that's about it. Now on my days off i hunt Atwood and have been seeing good numbers of deer at Beach city as well. I have yet to encounter anyone else while bow hunting either place. There are numerous farms in Southern Stark county that you could ask for permission to hunt but you aren't guaranteed access. Inconsiderate and careless hunter have made it hard for everyone who is looking to get permission to hunt private lands.

PayMe, Go to the ODNR and check the maps they have them all listed, take your pick:
http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/Home/wild...4/Default.aspx

There is a link at the top for the AEPRec lands, you'll need a free permit.

Funny thing, Atwood nor Tappen are not listed!

My buddy basically bought all the maps we use of the land in coshocton, not sure where he got them. I would honestly google coshocton public hunting lands and you should get a ton of links to point you into the right direction to get some maps. They plant crops on the lands too and have some real nice spots tucked up in there. Also a hell of a turkey spot
