well i met sam and he is a good guy with enormous enthusiasm for hunting whitetail deer but little practical experience with deer and deerhunting....he was born in india but is an american to the core and has embraced american culture fully.he is the future of hunting and i will do my best to prepare him for success.we did not have the opportunity to do any scouting on public land today but i plan to work with him in the coming weeks to train him up and prepare a gameplan to harvest a deer on public land in 2010.IF ANYONE ON THE OHIO FORUM HAS ANY INFO ON FARMERS,APPLEORCHARDS OR OTHER PRIVATE LAND in northeast ohio that will allow sam to hunt please forward the info and help sam get into the sport.if the members of this forum cant or wont do this please find someone you know and recruit them into deerhunting please TAKE SOMEONE HUNTING IN 2010

epd68,
 
Keep us all posted as we are all pulling for sam. I feel he is in good hands. If you ever get with him and feel like taking a road trip, come on down to West KY. I'll put you both up at camp and on deer as there are 17,000 acres of public land that border me. It is bow only though. I wouldn't have any problem having y'all out during one of the gun or ML hunts on my land, but they are short and that's when the most family and friends are there to hunt. Keep up the good work![;)][:D]
Hunt as though your life depended on it, because one day it just might!

EPD68 that is great.  I was going to also contact him.  Sounds like he and I are in the same situation.  new to hunting and noone to learn from.  I am going to be hunting Hambden next year so need to scout it,.  As this will be my first real scouting venture I thought it would be good for us to learn together.  Anyone know what kind of pressure Hamben gets?

mah712rn the snow has been too deep in hambden to scout just yet but as soon as practical sam and me will start scouting hambden orchard i will try to include you however i do rotate shifts so it will not be easy .....as to the orchard it gets a good amount of pressure gun season but bow season is light especially on week days it is 804 acres of thick stuff with a swamp in the middle so eat your wheaties.....watch this thread for updates

on sunday 04-25-10 i went scouting with sam accessing the hambden orchard wildlife area which borders my property we went over what sign to look for with a focus on rub lines ,using trail marking tape and bright eye tacks to locate the treestand area and stand placement. because of a prior disabling injury sam must use a sturdy ladder type stand because his mobility for climbing purposes is limited precluding any type of climber or loc on type stands.we spent about 2.5 hrs scouting and found a suitable stand site with good sign and trails surrounded on three sides with trees that had several signpost rubs made over several years of successive rubbing on the same trees. we worked together and found a pair of trees grouped together to lean a ladder stand against.we marked the area but did not place a stand there just yet. ODNR allows you to place a stand on their property but it must be removed every year and cant cause significant damage to the tree. we will probably make more scouting trips into the area and we will most likely secure the stand in late august with a cable and lock.when he hunts sam can use my property to access the wildlife area making for a nice 15 minute walk to his stand.SAM IS VERY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT DEER HUNTING AND WILL CONTINUE THE TRADITION STARTED BY ALL THE OHIO HUNTERS WHO CAME BEFORE HIM. he is the future of the sport and a brother to all ohio hunters

Sounds exciting. If I were Sam I'd be excited about the prospects too. Hope springs eternal, as they say. 
Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.

I see the youth hunts, and mentoring programs but I wish ODNR. Or OBA did some type of adult mentoring. I justice started last year and the learning curve for someone who didn't come from hunting family is steep. I sympathize with you same. Good luck. Keep us informed. Im actually in a tree now, praying form a deer to stroll by
