Shirley and I walked the Far Strips area to look for subsidence reported to us by the deer hunter. We found the site that we believe he had seen but we did not get over the entire area due to impending darkness. We took measurements and photos of it. It was not as wide as the hunter reported but it must have impressed him because of the danger it presented. It was 7 feet deep and 27 inches wide and was cracked open for about 6 feet long. The crack ran for about 50 feet off to the woods and several deep holes were in it. It could be a problem for wildlife or any human who wandered into it. I called ODNR and OVCC on Friday to report it. I got recordings at both phones so I left messages.
