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.
