I was unable to hunt this weekend and was wondering how all of my fellow Missouri hunters did. Lets here some stories and see some pictures.

I didn't see a ton of deer by no means this weekend. I did have a dandy 8 point come in and couldn't get a shot at him though.

I didn't see a lot of deer either, but I did miss two turkey's and shot a doe. Good opening weekend in my opinion.

I saw a quite a bit of movement yesterday morning but never got a shot. Then yesterday evening i had a doe come in to about 27 yards and offer me a perfect shot. Quarting away hard, took out two ribs and both lungs, and those slick tricks left a mean looking entrance and exit hole. Dont have pics now but will try to get some up. :darkbeer:

I didn't see anything this weekend! But my son on the other hand saw 8 does and 2 fawns. He said one doe was super fat and was at about 25 yards, but always stopped with the vitals behind a tree!! He's pretty pumped about going back out next weekend. I hope I can quit scratching these darn chiggers by then!

I only hunted Friday morning. I passed on 3 does at 10 yards. I must be getting soft or something, I just didn't feel like killing anything yet. :embara:

Wind direction was all wrong for me for my good stands. Did have 2 huntable stands but had not planned on using them and so I did not worry about checking out the shooting lanes. Have not hunted out of them for 2 years. So there I am stuck with very little to pick from and hardly any shooting lanes and that caused me to miss taking out a doe at 5 yards. To many limbs and leaves covering up the vitals for a clear shoot. Next time I will be perpared even if I do not plan on using them there will be clear shooting lanes just in case! On the positive side it was good to be in the field and see a few deer.

I only got to hunt a couple of hours Saturday morning. The wind was blowing so hard, that I started to get seasick in my stand, lol.
Saw a couple of does on the next ridge, but nothing in bow-range.

Here is what you missed...WIND, WIND AND MORE WIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But look outside today, and no wind at all? I hate Missouri weather!

I think the season picked up right where it left off with the wind. I saw some deer though, a bunch of does and a couple of bucks. I was at full draw on a nice doe, but she never presented me with a good shot.
