    Me and a buddy are going for Merriam's turkey in Colorado this year along with some shed hunting too. Then we are going to try our hand at a diy bowhunt for elk in Colorado should be an exciting year.

    Well don't think any of us can complain about our seasons! We all shot nice bucks and we were so close to first, hard to lose by one point. I had fun this season now time to turn my attention to some shed hunting and getting ready for the spring turkey season.

    Any thing new guys? I've been out a few more times still have a buck tag with my bow and a doe tag would love to get one more deer in the freezer and another buck to get some more practice doing taxidermy. My focus had gone to duck hunting lately but this warm weather here hasn't been good for ducks or deer. Hopefully we get a good cold snap soon. Did get a nice buck on trail camera he will be hard to get though pic was taken on a small piece with alot of land close by with hunting pressure.

  7. Missouri rifle

    Well this past weekend was the opening of the Missouri firearms season. Saturday started of pretty cool and fairly windy but still seen great deer movement had a doe come in then a group of 4 does with a button buck grunting and chasing them like crazy. I couldn't believe there wasn't a more mature buck around, at about 10 a.m. had a small fork horn cruise by. Took my son out in the evening but didn't see a single deer but was pretty windy. Sunday morning i took my brother out with me it started warmer and wet had some rain over night. I rattled about 15 min after shootin light and had a busted up 7 point come right to us, there's a 4 pt on one side restriction so we passed him because couldn't really tell if the last point was long enough. About an hour later I hear something in the creek below us and there's two does 50 yards and closing. They got to about 10 yards and my brother shot the second doe it was a perfect shot and she only ran 30 yards and piled up. We get down field dress her and drag her to the top of a field and on the way back to my truck we had to go through a cedar thicket that I like to sit in. The cedars are so thick nothing grows under Neath and it cuts the property in half and is about 80 yards wide. We decided to sit in it for awhile first spot we only stayed about 10 min and I wanted to move to get a better view and closer to another area. We pick a spot that was about 100 yards or less from the tree stands my brother shot his deer just a hour ago. We get settled in and a do a rattling sequence and grunt. 5 min goes by and directly in front of me at 50 yards and closing fast appears a nice buck. I stop him at 20 yards and he stops with a cedar covering his shoulder I could just see the back crease so I put it as close as I could and got the shot off. He ran off and couldn't really tell if he was hurt or not, we searched for blood and didn't find anything no blood or hair where he was standing or within 30 yards where he ran to. Needless to say I was sick to my stomach thinking I missed him at 30 yards. I went back to where I was sitting and looked some more and I started walking where my brother said he ran off to, about 50 yards down the trail I find some hairs covered in blood and what appears to be gut too. We find his blood trail and it definitely has guy in it and liver blood after 50 yards he jumped the fence onto the neighbors property so we backed out to call him and eat. Hour and a half later we are back out and the neighbor drove us to the fence he jumped he took his truck to another logging trail about 100 yards the direction the deer ran. We trail him into a ravine and at the bottom we find a decent area of blood this one had bright pink blood after that it got heavier and we started finding pools where he stood ever 10 yards he would stop. We get about 30 yards from the neighbor sitting in his truck with a good blood trail and I look over in the brush and there's the deer! Don't think I have been more excited for a deer with the thinking I missed and a possible gut shot to finding him and having my brother with me made it better too. Turns out the deer was quartering to me pretty hard and I didn't realize it the shot hit right where I was aiming it hit back half of one lung, his liver, and gut bullet came out alittle past half way his body. I'm guessing he was a 3 and a half maybe 4 year old deer huge neck big body and pretty heavy 8 point rack. Then we only had to drag him 30 yards which was nice since he was every bit of 200 lbs. Was an exciting hunt for sure and will be one I remember forever.

    Great buck Pat! Would be one of my bucket list hunts is to hunt Iowa. I've had alot of luck seeing nice bucks just haven't been able to close the deal. This past Thursday morning had 3 mature bucks over 140" come within 40 yards of my stand just in the one spot I don't have a shot. It's rifle season here now so hopefully I can get it done soon.
  11. Team 4

    Been out a few times past week seen a few does and one small buck. Nothing this morning except a coyote. I will go out tomorrow morning then after that I'll have Thursday and Friday to hunt a really good spot that's done good for us in the past few years. Been seeing a ton of scrapes and rubs, had the small buck come into my rattling. Hopefully I can tag out on a decent one here soon.

    Nice buck Frank nice to get one the board too. Had alot of deer movement past few days high was 49 here yesterday had alot a deer moving. Passed on a few smaller ones and had two 140" at 70 yards or so. Made some minor treestand location changes so hopefully it pays off.
  13. Team 4
