Default MO

DTC,
Hey what part of MO you live in? I'm actually in Arnold right now. On here for business, inspections in SL suburbs. I used to have more of Missouri out to Columbia & up to Unionville. A few years ago I bought MO tags and hunted several public areas. I found very few birds north of Truman Reservoir up to Iowa border. Truman had a lot. I was told the population had been hit hard in the northern half of the state. Hopefully the wet Junes ended and you guys got some good poult survival since I was there. Sounds like it.

I'll be back scouting Chouteau Island Friday afternoon & Saturday morning before driving home.

I live in SW MO, about an hour east of Springfield. I"ve had 2 bad hatches in the last 3 years. I have several jakes this year so next year I will have several of those 23-25 lb 2 yr olds running around.

It was a great hunt too. Birds gobbled good on the roost and even better on the ground. This ole bird didn't like his hens coming in to check out our jake mobile. DTC Jr made an awesome shot at 15 yards. We like them close!!!lol He is 11 years old and that is his 5th rio. Yes, I am a proud dad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ready for youth season in MO now. Can't wait to get back out with him.

Got an opening day Louisiana gobbler this morning at 8:30. He is a real nice bird for down here. He weighed just under 22 pounds and had a 10.2 inch beard with one spur at an inch and the other just under an inch. He scored 61.025. Congrats to you jr. I'll post your score also.

Good job DTW Jr & superstrutter! Both good scores to kick it off with.

I got two reliable toms patterned for my Illinois opener April 7th. I expect to take one of these if my setup is not busted by competing hunters. Given the layout of the land it is likely. So I am looking into taking my bike to get farther in. Just messin around as my Wisconsin spots are my bread & butter.
