Coshocton County

Wildlife Officer:
Garth Goodyear

AEP ReCreation Land
This deer-hunting paradise covers a total of 30,000 acres in several counties. This is reclaimed coal mining country. Since the mid-1940s, the area has been reclaimed through the planting of over 50 million trees.

More than 350 lakes and ponds are on this property providing deer with an abundant water supply. In Coshocton County, a 14,639-acre tract of this land known as the Conesville Coal Lands is five miles southeast of Coshocton. This area is considered a day-use only area and overnight camping is not allowed.

For archery hunters this could be considered a plus. Public access is limited and drinking water, public restrooms and picnic facilities are not available. This creates a more primitive experience, just the type of hunting situation that appeals to most bow hunters.

Permits for hunting the AEP lands are free and can be obtained by writing to American Electric Power, P.O. Box 328, McConnelsville, OH 43756.

The Coshocton County portion of these public hunting lands are best accessed from state routes 83 from the west, state Route 541 from the north and state Route 93 in the east. Numerous township and county roads provide additional access within the public hunting lands.
