    Missouri Hunting report

    OK guys, I have had a problem finding Mo reports for deer during bow season. So I figured I would start one. If your from MO and have time to share what the deer are doing in your area post it up. I always like to see the changes during the weeks of Oct. For me I got to hunt three times last week and was lucky to see deer every time I was in the stand. We passed on a 135 that was young and took a doe that was coming into acorns in Central Mo. As far as bucks go, I noticed the batch groups area split and the larger bucks area hitting the food plots and acorns a lot. I have not seen a scrape yet but have a feeling with the low temps they are just around the corner. What are they doing in your area??

    Still on acorns heavy in my lease in central MO as well in east/central. However, the corn has not been harvested. Shot a 135 on Saturday and he had a 110 with him. So, I guess some batch groups are still hanging out. He was full of big white oak acorns. I haven't found any scrapes or rubs yet in either location.

    Where I hunt in south central MO there are very, very few acorns this year. Hunting is tough right now. The woods are still green and thick and
    movement has been minimal. We're having a difficult time finding any pattern at all. There are no crops what so ever there either so they are mostly eating browse.

    southwest missouri there are acorns everywhere no large buck sightings yet but in my nanny spots the does are moving around 5:00 vacuming up the acorns. Shot one doe for the freezer I was up in northwest atchison county this weekend and hadnt seen any bucks moving in the light. Several doe in the beans though.

    I only hunted once in September and didn't see a deer. Too much corn up around the spot I hunted. I should've sat on the acorns that morning. Have been seeing them in the beans every evening driving home. With temps like we're having I'll have to get out quite a bit in October. I usually wait until the 3rd week to hit it hard.

    I went Saturday evening in Central Missouri and didn't see a deer. I sat what is usually a very productive stand, but this time not a single deer showed up. Just curious, said you hunt central MO, what part are you hunting? I live in Loose Creek, but hunt Callaway and Boone counties. Might have to head to the Boone county farm this weekend.

    I went bowhunting in Northwest MO for the first time this weekend. We saw deer every sit, but the warm weather on Sunday produced movement just at dark. On the more mild days we have been getting movement and seeing deer in the food plots all times of the day.

    We didn't see any bucks while on stand, our trail cameras have produced some pics of nice bucks. However, 100% of our trail cam pics of bucks have been right at dark or during the night. No scrapes yet either.

    Acorns are falling everywhere, there are lots of them. Hopefully the cooler weather this weekend will stir things up a bit.

    9/30 -10/01

    Well I got off work for a couple of nights. Went out on the morning of the 30th and watched two does with yearlings vacuuming up acorns. The morning passed with no bucks showing up. The night of the 1st was a little better with a small 8 coming in after the rain stopped.... Plan on going out tomorrow night despite the full moon..... I have the chance to drive and cover a lot of area after dark, while at work. I have noticed since Tues I have been seeing a lot of good bucks out moving after dark. I would say the ratio to does was about 3 bucks to does sightings for the PM hours. This is a drastic change from last week when I would see 4 or 5 does for every buck. ..... I'm not sure why the does are moving as well but I figure with the full moon and cold temps hunting in the mid day might pay off.....

    The night of Oct 2nd was WINDY with cold temps. Got in the stand surrounded by white oaks and did nto see a deer until 6:35pm when 4 bucks came in to eat. The largest was a tight racked 2.5 year old ten. The others were 1.5 basket rack bucks. I was suprised to see them still together. As the bucks fed you could tell they were demanding their space and the larger of the four would run the little bucks off acorns several times.... Still no scrapes i have attached some stills from the camera that night.

    Tons of acorns in NW MO. Have seen very little scrape activity. Crops are getting harvested, but not an issue with the amount of acorns. No real pattern except for finding the white acorns. Full moon has driven more mid-day activity.

    I'm heading out this afternoon. We have a ton of acorns here in NW MO and there is starting to be more fields harvested than uncut forcing those deer back into the woods. This cold snap might get something up and moving more this evening. It is supposed to get down to 27 degrees tonight. I'm pretty excited to get out there tonight. Good Luck Missouri Hunters!
