    Well welcome to the site
    as for a place to hunt, all over SE ohio, holds some great bucks and places to hunt
    its hard to say try here or there on an open forum, as if we did that, so many folks would show up there, that spot wouldn't be good long
    best advice is, look real good on Google earth at some spots
    then make a scouting trip, and go to as many places as you can
    and then plan hunt about what places you like best, scouting in march is good, as you can double up and look for sheds
    or in mid summer, and then you can see what crops are plant and where
    or can come in May and add a spring turkey hunt into the mix, and look for sheds too
    but odds are you won't know about crops or food plots till summer
    nothing beat actually scouting, and it always worth the drive and time in the long run
    good luck

    Welcome to the site, and I second mrbb's advise. I'm from out of state also and started hunting Ohio 4 yrs ago. Theres definately a learning curve when it comes to pubic land. But you won't be disappointed. With some time on google, some time on the odnr web site, you will be able to get maps, an plan your scouting. Its not easy but with lots of sweat, and boots on the ground you will be fine, and have a good time. And your right, there's not a big buck behind every tree, but there are there. Good luck to you and your hunting partner.
    what goes around, comes around. (I sure do hope so)!!
