You know of any land above the missouri river that would be available to hunt? My dad and I would be willing to lease (for a fair price). Mainly just for rifle season, and turkey hunting. I bowhunt most of the time down here in the SW Mo.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
