Shawnee Ridge is the destination for hog hunting and wild boar hunting in Southern Ohio, as well as Russian boar, fallow deer, red stag, corsican ram, and Texas dall. Family founded, owned and operated since 1973 and located in the foothills of Appalachia, we’re one of the largest preserves in Southern Ohio and our rugged terrain is enough to test the most avid hunter.
"Wonderful and knowledgeable people. My boys had a great experience with them and will be back!"
"Took two of my daughters to Shawnee Ridge and had an amazing time. Great food , intense terrain, large property. Guide Paul Jr was incredibly patient. We will be back."
"What a great way to kick back and relax! I spent the weekend with my hubby, son, and granddaughter at this wonderfully rustic lodge! Thank you Paul, Donna, and Paul for your wonderful hospitality. I learned so much and am looking forward to coming back sometime. Thank you for everything!"
"Incredibly nice folks. Great food. Family style atmosphere. Spent a great day, and ended the evening around a nice fire with friends. So much to look at too. Nice to see multiple generations enjoying the outdoors."
"Great family atmosphere, fantastic food, and absolute blast hunting, hogs especially! Best taxidermist around!"
"The hunting is amazing - beautiful Ohio river "mountains" and great folks who care about your hunting experience. Hogs are tough and provide an excellent challenge. We've seen some true beasts and taken a couple of them over the years. Paul and Paul Jr. do an amazing job with youth hunters who can't stop smiling at the end of the day! Donna serves up meals to die for! Wouldn't go a year without spending some time with this family!"
"Great place. Rough terrain. Even better memories and hospitality."
"Awesome place to hunt and chill people, it's wonderful there, home away from home."
"Best hunt I've been on. Saw a lot of hogs, not just one. The food was great, they treat you like family. I cannot wait to go back!3
"There isn't anywhere else in the world you would rather be. The people there are amazing, the food is worth killing for, there's just no other place you would want to be for all your hunting, fishing and camping adventures. Shawnee Ridge Hunting, it's the real deal!"
“I arrived not knowing what to expect with hopes of a good hunt. Upon meeting the Richters (Paul Sr, Donna, Paul Jr, and later Garrett) I felt welcome and experienced an immediate comfort level. The hunt and stay surpassed all my hopes and then some. The hunt is challenging but you have a good chance of coming home with a boar, which I did. My family and friends raved about the pictures I shared and the meat was enjoyed and called the best eating of its kind. I’ve already scheduled my next Shawnee Ridge hunt and expect it to become a yearly occurrence. I truly believe Shawnee Ridge is a hidden gem and, by the way, the chow is great!”
In addition to the hunts offered on our property, we book African game safaris. From impala or Cape Buffalo to hippo and klipspringer, or whether you’re a rifle or a bow hunter, we cater to all interests and skill sets.
