Jesse Owens State Park
Jesse Owens State Park is a success story in environmental stewardship, conservation, and reclaiming land for outdoor recreation. Located in Morgan County and surrounded by thousands of acres of land open to public use, the park is teeming with wildlife. A popular hunting area, the park offers four primitive campgrounds at no charge. Additional acres are available for hunting and fishing in the adjacent wildlife areas.
Wolf Creek Wildlife Area
The Wolf Creek Wildlife Area is 3,978 acres of ODNR-owned land set aside for public hunting and fishing. A special primitive deer hunting season is held on this property each October, one of only 3 sites in the state offering this event. This property also offers a shooting range accommodating Rifle/Pistol, Shotgun, & Archery B, C, and D.
Burr Oak State Park
Hunting is permitted in designated areas of the park, adjacent wildlife areas, and the adjacent Wayne National Forest. A static archery range is near the campground. Two targets are NASP (10 and 15 meters). Four others are 20, 30, 40, and 50 yards. Bring your own equipment. Field points only; no broadheads. Bow hangers and quivers are provided.
Appalachian Hills Wildlife Area
The combination of woodland, open areas, and islands of vegetation left undisturbed during the mining process creates transitional zones that provide brushy and reverting fields. These areas are prime habitat components that provide excellent hunting opportunities. White-tailed deer, cottontail rabbit, turkey, mourning dove, squirrel, and grouse are the principal game species.
