Default First Bowhunt trip

My first weekend of bowhunting was was enjoyable. Glad to be back in woods. I passed a basket 6 pt. Pretty deer, he still had velvet on one side. I also seen 2 does with no shot. It was nice just to bet back out there. Anyone else get to go?

our season opened Sat. went Sat & Sun. Probably the best start to the season we ever had. saw the most deer I have seen in a long time
out of 20 or so deer we saw only 1 was a buck. couple missed opportunities on the doe but had a blast.

Nope, up here in north central MO, I haven't been yet. Planning on going out in the morning (sat). Supposed to be low 40's tonight with a north wind.

Semo- are you all having alot of cases of deer dying from this fly-bite stuff? They're not calling it blue-tongue or CWD, but there's some sort of small fly that can infect deer and kill them. Humans cannot get this disease, but deer can. There was a case of it just south of Madison, MO (about 15 min from where I live) and there was a case of it just north of Salisbury (about 30 min from where I live). In the first case, there were 6 deer found dead from it, all in one general area. In the other case, there were only 4. I read in the paper last night where 2,800 deer have died from this disease just in this year! that's alot of deer.

Good luck to you man

I'll be leaving Oct 3rd for a Michigan U.P. bow hunt, 3 old friends meeting up for another enjoyable week of hunting. I hope the weather turns cold for the week. Reports are pretty good based on trail cam photos.
