    I had read that as well and it looked gray to me. I think I will just call the conservation department and see what they have to say. Thanks for the input!

    Hello, Missouri. Tennessee here. Planning on a move in maybe around 5 years. A lot can change in that amount of time, I know. I am curious, though, what everyone in Missouri thinks about their state. As far as deer go. Specifically, the amount and size of the deer in Missouri.
    I started a thread back in July of this year called "Best overall State to Bow hunt Whitetails." I would say that, of the states I am currently looking at, Iowa, for the most part, came up most. Actually had one bow hunter that lives in Iowa say he has hunted both states and he preferred Iowa.
    So, let me hear ya Missouri, what is your answer?
    I am not interested in any northern states as I am unable to handle the colder temps. Would much prefer Missouri over Iowa for that reason. Thanks Missouri.

    Hey guys, here to bug you again. I am heading to the Helton Wildlife area and also thought about going to the Grand Trace area and was wondering how the hunting was in those areas? The areas look pretty good but I am having a tough time deciding where to setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    After the strange #s last year , it's looking like things are back to normal this year . Really think the drought of the last 2 years had just caused some movement last season , sure made it look like EHD had just wiped everything out though . Seeing a lot of good buck back were they're supposed to be ...... my farms :)

    Hope everyone has a great season !!

    My MO deer look fantastic this year. We didn't get hit much at all around our farms here locally. I'm guessing because of good water supplies here. Good deep, fresh water...from what I've read the midge flies thrive better around shallow crappy water.

    I have found that many farmers in this state are nice enough to let me hunt their ground maybe exchange a little work for the rights. Its a hit or miss game though Ive knocked on many doors and gotten some good ground to hunt.
    currently living in warrensburg mo. hunt in ralls, pike, franklin, marion, Johnson,and pettis county.

    The numbers look good in Cass county. Have a nice 4 yr old 10 pter that I would love to take. Also a cow bodied 7pter that would be awesome to have on the wall. Been out 3 times opening week and saw plenty of does and turkey. This past week with the hot temps I saw two deer. Looks like the next few days will cool down though should get a bit better. Good Luck

    Pleasant Hill, MO here.

    chopayne, I'd be surprised if you can find free and private but good luck.

    ultramax, We have a family farm just outside Gifford, if you know where that is and just S/O Kirksville. Both my folks were born and raised in LaPlata and I have cousins all over that area.

    Laplta is were my brothers farm is, here at my place I see 3-6 deer and my brother calls me and sees 20-30 deer on every hunt there. I am going up there in a few weeks when it's time to get serious. We are getting crops out here,will be in the corn for at least a week.
    My Dumass being cheap passed on a deer lease of a lifetime this season 400ac for 3000 $ that is a deer meca, nothing for this guy to see 7-9 bucks on a eve hunt and 20+ does great Mississippi River ground. I should have jumped on it,I gave him three cams to use and then he showed me just how bad I messed up. Funny thing my farm is only five miles from his and I have 10x the crops. I have big deer but they take a lot of time on stand to get it done.
