Timberland, The majority of Vinton county is currently thought of as being in the  "immature" zone... The northeastern part of the county looks like there might be some possibility, but not anywhere like in the northeastern part of the state. The soil and water district and OSU extension decided to put the meeting on because they were getting questions from landowners... some Vinton county landowners also signed up with Cunningham when they were holding meetings in Athens. The were primarily interested in land bordering Athens county. please go to the meeting if you can. Landowner associations can be good, but they also vary in their rules, and charges to landowners for getting a lease together.

That is what we heard too but I was interested after seeing that there was going to be a meeting in McArthur. I thought there was something new going on.

I would like to keep up to date with any information anyone might have. I was also told the best way to deal with drilling companies is to join a co-op of land owners. I don't know if there has been any talk of that, if so it might be worth thinking about.
