I got drawn for one a couple years ago. I had to go buy a management tag, it was around 17 bucks. Then get there early and check in. The hunt i was on was a DNR area that i worked at at the time. There were 44 hunters for 1000 acres with a limit of 3 does. I got there extra early and set up on a known escape route....sure enough about 9 am a big wad of does come running out and i was able to tag the biggest. I was a muzzleloader hunt so i didn't have time to reload. This certain hunt was never successful (my deer was only one of 4 killed) becase there were too many hunters. Many of which went to scout the day before and pushed most of the deer out. It has now been eliminated. What hunt were you drawn for?
Wow how did you find out that your selected? I signed up for one, and the Missouri Department of Conservation's website said I wouldn't find out till Sept 11. I'm hoping I get it, it is limited to 100 archers for 1300 acers.
