Well, upon "gearing up" and heading for woods, I was approached by a Cincinnati Recreation Commission grounds keeper. He was spreading mulch. He sternly asked what I was "up to". I told him, showed my equipment, etc. He then calmed.
Evidently, poachers have been bow hunting the woods during deer season? He also stated the police are very aware of this too. I said I would leave immediately if he so desired.
We talked a bit more, I informed him of the "bottle dump", the history of grounds, me personally being raised nearby, and how much trash I haul out of the woods.
Long story short, I was given permission to carry on.
I will surely keep an eye out for poachers too.
I hope to find more relics from OMI especially,also Farmers College and before.
Thanks for your read. I'll update as time permits.
