History of outdoors and exploration in Ohio

Ohio holds a rich history of exploration and recreation that dates back centuries. The state's diverse landscape, ranging from the rolling hills of the Appalachian Plateau to the flat plains of the Western Allegheny Plateau, has long been a playground for adventurers. The Native American tribes that first inhabited Ohio were expert hunters and fishermen, utilizing the state's abundant wildlife and waterways. European settlers continued this tradition of outdoor recreation, with hunting and fishing becoming vital for survival. In the 19th century, Ohio's natural beauty began to draw tourists. The establishment of state parks like Hocking Hills in 1924 provided public access to some of Ohio's most stunning landscapes. This marked a shift in Ohio's outdoor culture from survival-based activities to recreational pursuits. Modern-day outdoor enthusiasts in Ohio can partake in a variety of activities, including hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, and boating. The state boasts over 70 state parks and numerous nature preserves that offer countless opportunities for exploration. Ohio is a large agricultural state with $11B of ag production, and roughly 95.8% of the land privately owned by farmers and ranchers. The major crops are soybean, corn, dairy products and hogs. When planning hunting trips to Ohio on private lands like farms & ranches, it's important to understand some key dates for farmers and ranchers. Ranchers in this region usually do their calving, brandings and vaccinations anywhere from February through June. During these times, they are extremely busy and may be harder to communicate with. Farmers in Ohio will usually begin planting their crops in late April through June and then will harvest their crops in September through November, depending on weather.
