Missouri Trip

Just got back from a trip to Northern Missouri with my dad and grandfather where the rifle season had just come in for deer. We were fortunate enough to meet and become friends with a guy who lives around here but has 1048 acres leased to hunt on that he used to own and currently owns another 250 out there. All i can say is wow its a different world out there! Deer are all just much bigger body and antler size and the amount of game we saw was awesome. First morning we were out there was the day before the season opened and we were all inside eating breakfast when we saw 3 coyotes right behind the camp and the owner told me to shoot em if i get the chance so i grabbed my 22-250 which i took out for that reason and managed to get a shot at one at 200 yards and dropped him in his tracks only my second coyote. Then the first morning of the season my grandfather had an opportunity at a true giant buck but long story short things didn't work out for him. Then on the fourth day of the hunt (yesterday) my dad shot a nice 10 point and within another 2 hours i had an 8 point on the ground. Overall the trip was awesome and couldn't have asked for anything better!! I have truly been blessed this fall with deer hunting and have managed to get 3 bucks each one exceeding the previous one and this was an awesome way to end an awesome deer season!!

Re: Missouri Trip

Northern Missouri is one of my favorite places. Where abouts were you out there. I hunt north of Memphis, Mo in Scotland County right along the Iowa border. I mostly archery hunt though - Congrats on the bucks - sounds like you had a great time.
