We found 2 little ones 1 was a 1 1/2 and the other was 2 1/2 both 4 points.We then went to my honey hole and as soon as we got to what I call the bowl we jumped up 5 big bucks all with both side.We backed out and are going to wait a few more weeks

I didn't go out here in North central MO this past weekend. Going to go out this weekend and look for some. Did about 3 days of looking the weekend before last and found nothing, but a bunch of bedding areas.

The good thing about the 5 buck we did see is they are all 130+ and snow white rack.They should to be easier to see when they do come off .Most of the rack in this area had been brown to yellow but a few years ago we hade a monster 170+ running the property all through the first and second rut and it looks like he got the job done.He must have came down or up the blue river.

Good deal man- I took my nephew out Saturday afternoon and didn't have any luck. Saw quite a few deer though, which was neat for him (and me!) to see. Plus we got to play around with some turkeys. They were in a drawl and we spotted them as we were coming over the hill, the wind was so strong and blowing at us, they didn't hear us or see us. There were 4-5 jakes all just nosing around and scratching. I started hen calling and those jakes got so excited like they thought it was mating season! hahahahaha They perked up and actaully started walking towards us a little, but they then saw us and took off. Fun day!

I found 1 yesterday and 3 more today for a total of 10 for me so far this year and still no good ones.My boy found a good one.He just found the one side but it will score somewhere in the upper 60s to 70s

Yea we had 10"on the ground and right now we are getting 12''+crazy.But I have always found my best sheds in deep snow.I go where they are feeding and pawing at the ground.It is exhausting walking in but I have had great luck.
