Missouri public land kills (not one of my crowning achievements)

Post by bowonly on Fri Nov 15, 2013 11:49 am

I'm sure my new nickname will be baby killer but my time in Missouri this year was sad as far as deer movement goes. I saw very little in my 11 day stay. Here's the first story. This day found me perched in an oak overlooking a crossing beat down with traffic and littered with several fresh scrapes. 3 great bucks had been seen in this general area by another member of our group. As dawn broke I caught movement at the crossing...it was a nice doe (or so I thought)..I gave one more look to make sure and then let the landshark loose. I heard the unmistakeable lung punch and knew a quick end would come. The deer made 2 bounds into some nearby brush then stopped. I could hear it cough a few times and then a thud as it fell over. I stayed on stand for awhile hoping to double up and I ended up getting some short video of a forkhorn that wandered by. I was very disappointed when I walked up on this dink of a spike instead of a nice fat doe. Not what I came to Missouri to kill. Oh well, it's meat.





This was the last evening I was to be in Mizzou. With the lack of sightings I was, at this point, getting desparate and just about willing to shoot anything. I had just gotten a text from my hunting buddy saying that he had just killed a young 8pt. I started gathering my gear to get down and help with the drag when I hear footsteps in the dry leaves. I turn to see 2 young deer approaching my position at the edge of the clover plot. There are a lot of young saplings in the area so I have to wait til the deer gets to within 15yds before I have a clear shot. I stick the lead deer and watch it nose dive after a 25yd run. The second deer never moved so I nock another arrow but could never get a clear shot before it left. Score #2 for the baby killer.

Congrats on your deer! I have yet to harvest a deer so, I am shooting the first legal one that comes along. In my unit it is one deer only meaning buck, doe or fawn.

i've gotten a little one two years in a row now. the one this year was practically in diapers. my wife asked if next year I was just going to run down a pregnant doe and slice the baby out of her. LOL. hoping the late season will be kind to me.
