B & N Coal, Inc. Lands

The center of this 3,002-acre public hunting area lies approximately five miles southeast of Caldwell. The many tracts of ownership can easily be reached from Interstate 77, State Route 78, and State Route 821.

Old fields and reverting strip mine spoil banks provide the most productive areas for deer and grouse. Gray and fox squirrels occupy the woodlands that have not been disturbed by mining. Wild turkeys are established on the area and beaver are present on many watersheds. Largemouth bass and bluegills have been caught from several of the ponds.

A free use PERMIT IS REQUIRED while on the B & N Coal, Inc. area. Permits are available from the District Four Headquarters of the Division of Wildlife, 360 East State Street, Athens, Ohio  45701-1895. Be sure to carry your permit while on the area.

Hunters (especially night hunters) and other area users should be aware that there are miles of highwalls and other forms of generally rough terrain. Users should also respect those portions of the area marked by signs stating “Active Mine Area-No Trespassing.” Trespassing in active mining areas will not be tolerated, nor will the off-road use of any vehicle. It is important to remember, this area is primitive; drinking water, restrooms, picnic facilities, and parking lots are not available. This is primarily a day-use area; camping is prohibited.
