My favorite game to hunt is deer.
My father taught me alot about hunting and I've learned many different things on my own.
I use a Horton Safari Express Crossbow and a 12 Gauge Remingtion 1100.
I have tons of favorite memories, but I would have to say my favorite is of the buck I shot this season.
My dream hunt would be to travel to Maine and hunt Moose.

From Dayton Ohio. I love to waterfowl hunt. I hunt Caesars Creek Lake, Rocky Fork, Lake Erie, and some local fields around Dayton. I also love to turkey hunt in SE Ohio. I also deer hunt down there as well. I'm 22 and right now a junior at wright state university. I am part of the ohiowaterfowler.com field staff as well as ohiogobbler.com field staff.

I'm from Wapakoneta. I hunt less and less locally, but have hunted in SE Ohio since 1972. I deer hunt with archery and black powder (I haven't used a shotgun since '81) and some with a handgun. I hunt turkeys, groundhogs and coyotes. I've been to Canada bear hunting (flintlock) and Montana elk hunting (center fire). I learned most of my hunting through Outdoor Life and trial & error.

Orient Ohio here, Favorite game to hunt would be deer.
I use a bowtech mission. Also use a thompson center black diamond during the gun season. Father taught me to hunt and learned a lot myself out in the woods. First hunt would have been squirrel. Best memory would be my first deer which was a decent size 9 point.

I'm from the Madison County area. I do some hunter education here and try to work the Fair at least once in the summer for the DNR. I also am starting on as a Buckeye Trial maintainer. I love my archery deer and turkey hunting here in OH and also hunt dove, waterfowl, etc. My biggest love would be getting in the truck and pointing it twards WY to chase mulies in the mountains though. Anyone interested in some backpacking? It's hard to get motivated to go alone and being retired it is hard to find someone to go through the week when it is not crowded.

I live in Canton, ohio. I hunt whitetail with a Bowtech Guardian and a Thompson Center Encore. Started hunting when i was 6 with my dad and granddad. Mostly squirrel, rabbit and coon. My first deer was a small 8 pt. in West Virginia. My best memory is hunting W.V. with my dad, brother, and granddad. my dream hunt would be whitetail in Iowa with Tiffany Lakoski.
