You should hunt Missouri some time. Our archery opens September 15th and runs through January 15th. In the north part of the state, you can take one buck before rifle season and one buck after rifle season and all of the does you want. Now, rifle season opens usually around the 12th to the 14th of November and runs 11 days which is always a Tuesday. Then the following Friday after Thanksgiving, muzzle loader season opens and runs 9 days and the Saturday after that, anterless only season opens. Now with rifle, you can only take one buck (that's rifle and muzzle loader) but in most parts of the state, you can shoot all the anterless deer you want.
Now if you hunt the southern part of the state, you stand a good chance of running into wild hogs and can shoot all of those you want. You don't even have to have a tag or anything.
Sorry for being so long winded.
Good luck with your season!
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
