Hunting in the Muskingum Watershed Lands
Most of the 57,000 acres of land and water owned by the MWCD is open to public access. Hunting is a popular land activity that attracts hunters to the region. In the interest of safety, hunting on MWCD land is prohibited within 500 feet of “Restricted Use” area, buildings, and public roads.
Through a memorandum of understanding with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR), ODNR is responsible for all fish and wildlife management on Conservancy District lands and lakes. All hunting and fishing rules, regulations and license requirements of the State of Ohio apply.
Find areas of MWCD that are available for hunting through the Online Interactive Map or download a map below. Maps are for informational purposes only; hunters are advised to comply with signage showing restricted use areas in the field.
