Blind rut hunting


Recommended Posts

I’m from Louisiana and I’m coming to Missouri for the first time ever, I’m going to be bow hunting public land for the first week of November and I haven’t been able to come up there to scout. I have a few spots that look good on the map but can y’all give me some tips or recommendations on what I should do to be successful

I've been bowhunting Missouri for the past 7 seasons in a row now.  I bowhunted a different area twice prior to the past 7 years.  IMHO the best dates to bowhunt rutting bucks in Missouri is 11/3 through 11/10.  Also the best counties to hunt are any of the the northern 2 tiers of counties that aren't within a CWD contaiment area.  That will knock out half the northern counties.
