My brother belongs to a camp in that area and they don't see or kill many deer. I don't hunt there so I can't vouch for their effort or tactics.

You won't see many deer, but the bucks are pretty nice in that area.

I've ridden my dual sport many miles, many times thru that area. Never see deer. I'd think if you can find a logged/burnt area or oak stands you would see some. Beautiful area and not far from areas that hold deer, I'd buy a camp there.
Brad that is a cool blog, added to my favorites.

Re: Leetonia deer quality?

I have lots of memories there and still fish down that way. My cousin's camp had one of their best years ever last year, with bucks. That camp goes back to the 30's. But, they know those woods from generations hunting them. Put me down there and it would take years to learn it.

Re: Leetonia deer quality?

Bob, I wouldn't let low deer density keep me from buying a camp there. It's like Greybeard said, it's close to areas that hold good populations of deer. It's definitely one of my favorite places in the state. I love the beauty and the remoteness. Hope it all works out for you.
