Early Archery

Our Early Archery Hunts are generally evening hunts. Bucks are still in their bachelor groups and summer feeding patterns allow for a low pressure hunt. The weather is typically warm.

The Rut

Rut Hunts start around the end of October.  A Switch goes off in the deer.  Bachelor groups break up, chasing begins, and all are more vocal.  This can be a fast paced hunt and quick decisions may have to be made.  This is the time when big bucks are more prone to letting their guard down and new bucks may show up. It’s an exciting time to be in the woods.

Youth Hunts

Ohio Youth season is a two day gun hunt over the course of a weekend.  It’s a great hunt to introduce a youngster to hunting as most of the time you will hunt from a blind or double ladder stand.  This hunt occurs at a time when rutting deer are still a possibility.

Muzzleloader

Ohio Muzzleloader season is a four day hunt in early January. Cold snowy weather is best for success during this season. We have shooting houses and ground blinds with heaters to help you to stay comfortable in the field. This is a good hunt to see lots of deer and focus in on a particular big buck that has made it through the season this far.

Late Season Archery

Late season archery hunts are in mid December and January.  These hunts are a lot like our muzzleloader hunts in that the cold weather is best.  Typically an evening hunt will be in a shooting house with a heater over a corn pile. Another great hunt to target a buck that has made it through the season thus far.

Spring Turkey

Our Spring turkey hunts are mid April to mid May.  We hunt mornings walking or with the use of a golf cart when needed.  Our guides do a great job calling and using decoys to bring responding gobblers into range.

Our land

Kokosing River Outfitters Guided Hunts in Ohio

    We do our best here at Kokosing River Outfitters to control the controllables.  If we have an opportunity to improve our properties we do.  Running trail cameras and glassing helps us get a good idea of herd size, and health.  We take hunters to and from their stands which most are on field edges.  We penetrate the woods as little as possible to keep properites as low pressured as possible.
