I am 32 and live in Fulton County, Ohio. I am completely new to hunting. I have 2 acres on a corner of a farm field so not the best area if I wanted to hunt my own land. I have read posts that have said the minimum to hunt your own land is 5 acres. Not sure if this is true for Fulton County. I have shot guns all my life but I have decided to try bow hunting to give myself a challenge and to extend the amount of time I have to hunt with the longer season. I am interested in any advice as far as what equipment to buy or not to buy and where the best places are to hunt. I’m only a few miles from maumee state forest so that would be the most convenient but not sure if that’s the best option. Do all bowhunters take stands onto public ground or do some shoot from ground level? What are the best times to get into stands to avoid disturbing other hunters? Not looking for any secret spots. It’s going to be a huge learning curve for me but I am looking forward to the experience. I am probably going to hold off a year. I would like to get my bow and equipment this fall and practice, practice, practice in hopes for a successful first hunt next year. I have two young boys and I would like to get into hunting now in order to eventually pass down the skill to them.
