Pleasant Valley Wildlife Area

This 1,465-acre wildlife area lies between U.S. Route 35 and State Route 104, 3 miles northwest of Chillicothe. The main access road is County Road 127 (Egypt Pike) off State Route 104. Several small parking areas are available and good access is provided throughout the area by secondary roads.

The most productive areas for rabbits are the field borders and edges between cover types. Ring-necked pheasants are stocked during the season to provide additional hunting opportunity. Squirrel hunting is limited to the more mature woodlands, where beech, hickory, and red and white oak trees are of nut bearing size. A few grouse may be found in the cutover woodlands and reverting fields. Raccoon hunting is best in the mature woodlands and along associated streams. Deer may be found over the entire area. Furbearers may be trapped in suitable habitats area-wide. The area’s ponds range in size from one-quarter to one-half acre and provide some fishing opportunity.
