Ok, started the northern end of Scioto and finished Hang glider Hill thru Lickskillet.  When I turned north I went thru the gate and ended up in an active cow pasture -- with cattle, angus variety.  Made me wary of walking thru.   

Anyone notice this or walk thru lately?  Any one have any trouble?

That cow pasture has one of the prettiest views on the whole BT. I've never had problems cows on the Buckeye Trail and Appalachian Trail and I have been through lots of pastures. Cows are pretty tame. They just stare at you.

No issue at all but I am leery of just crossing private land via gates that must be closed behind you.

There were dozens of cattle staring at me over the hill into londonderry.

Yep

and no problems

I also went through a cow pasture in the Sinking Springs Section.  As I was talking to the cows, I turned and a bull as large as my Pilot was directly laying in front of me.  I almost walked up his _ _ _ .  He took one look at me and returned to chewing his cud.

Poppie. That was probably a steer not a bull. A steer is a castrated bull. They are not as aggressive after going through that process. Go figure.

Well, made it through alive.  My biggest fear was either a bull or a cow with a calf.

Went through there a couple weeks ago.  Yet another crazy experience on the BT.  I've walked past many but this was the first time walking through. 

The Cows were LOUD and mooooed at us the whole time.
