Well, I have another possible move coming for the restaurant biz. This time the gig will be outside Cincinatti and I was looking at the areas to live within an hour that would be a good spot for farm life and hunting. I like the sounds of the northern Kentucky region at least a little south of the three metro counties I was just curious to see if that would be a good choice for that kind of lifestyle or if i should look more at the ohio side or indiana side. Obviously they are all great hunting states but which one would be good for overall hunting? I'm not a trophy hunter and i know all the states mentioned are quality for good bucks but my girl and i just like bowhunting together and filling the freezer for the year. I look forward to hearing from you all. How is it for gaining private land access in any of those areas or is public land quality in those states?

South of Cincinnati should be perfect for what your looking for. Campbell,Boone,Kenton an Pendleton Co all have great deer an turkey hunting. Pendleton is a little further south but land is available. Pm me if u want. I've lived in Campbell for 50 yrs.

More public ground in Ohio...... But gaining private getting isn't all that hard in any of the states..... I live in NKY and have hunting grind in all 3 states....... All great deer and turkey.... As well as decent waterfowl hunting at times

All 3 are good but Indiana and Ohio has high deer numbers. Northern KY is good but hard to get permission on private land unless you know someone.

Have family in Grant Co. They have big deer on their farm, as a matter of fact I will be heading up that way once the season starts to cull the heard a bit.

Kentucky has far more natural resources than IN or OH. Nearly 50% of KY is forest, KY also has Elk and Bear.

What does that have to do with hunting northern KY? Theres not a lot of public land in that region. I'm having trouble finding a lease. Some of it having to do with guys coming out of the big city. Northern KY can be good if you can find a place.

I'm just saying Kentucky has more undeveloped land and more wildlife. So if you find a good property your better off here in KY in my opinion.

I live in Union ky. Saw 35 deer and 6 turkey on my bike ride through Boone Co. tonight. Have a couple places in Greater Cincinnati and a slice of heaven in Peebles Oh to hunt. On the occasion that I get a buck in both ohio and Ky., I then get a license in Indiana. Good hunting in Switzerland Co. Ind and Harrison Ind.
Being a good chef, You will meet a lot of good people. Some of them will know a place you may hunt. Don't be bashful, just ask. If they know of a place, ask them to introduce you to the owners. Good people around here once they get to know ya. I found 6 farms to hunt the first year I lived here by hanging out and making friends with the cook at a locally owned restaurant.
