Well my first year hunting hasn't been with much success. One more day to try it again, then rifle season is over. I spent three months scouting with some veteran hunters. Have what seems to be the perfect spot, A bottleneck ridge that opens up to a 3 acre food plot and a nice size creek. I went before season a few times with my stand and watched deer, thinking I was on to something. Now, here at the end of the season, everyday I see fresh droppings and fresh tracks, but no deer. I just assume they are comming out only at night. One evening I called in a nice 8 point with the grunt call, but by the time he came in sight it was about a half hour after dark, and didn't have a decent shot anyway, he made some blowing noise at me, stomped his feet and took off. So I guess i'll try it again tomorrow, and if it dont happen, well, I guess I can go buy a muzzle-loader. But for now, still looking for my first deer in Missouri.
