Missouri Hunt Recap

Missouri Hunt Recap

Show Notes

Garrett and his wife Sam went down to Missouri for a public land group hunt with some of the crew from Tethrd. The overall hunt for them was Saturday through Tuesday. Most of the first day was boots-on-the-ground scouting with a few hour sit at the end. Warm weather continued into Day 2 with highs in the 60s and very little daytime deer movement for the entire group. Sunday night into Monday, a big weather front moved in, and the temperatures would drop straight from 65 to 12 degrees by Tuesday morning.

Monday morning was windy, with temps in the mid 30s and rain. We waited inside until the rain turned to sleet and eventually snow by around noon and then hit the woods. Knowing we'd only have a few hours and that Tuesday morning would be the clear, calm day after the storm, we hung our saddle platforms in a thermal hub and started walking back to a spot to ground hunt. As we worked back through a riverbottom area, we found several sets of tracks in the fresh snow (hours old) and saw a small buck following a doe. We found a deadfall and decided to tuck into it for the evening. It turned out to be a good decision, and the story plays out fully in the podcast.
