Anyone going out of state this year?

  1. Tennessee for sure. I've got a sweet deal over there where a farmer lets me have the whole farm to myself for the first 3 days of the season. I camp out on the farm and it doesn't cost me a thing (except for license).

    Missouri. Got family in south central MO where I can walk out their back door and hunt their land. Also about a 20-30 min drive to the NF.

    I see no reason to go out of state, when I go 50 minutes down the road and not kill turkeys.

    That's awesome, I hope you have a blast! I don't think I would enjoy that much packed into a relatively short time period. Even back when I considered myself to be mad at them 5-6 states was usually about all I wanted. Occasionally I'd start wishing for one last trip but after 16 states I'd just be burnt out.

    Missouri for me. Doubt I get to do much else this year.

    Will go back out west next year.

    I usually don't go to MO much even though I'm 20 miles from the state line. We try and go on an early hunt. NE, TN most of the time.

    If you do make it. Try central North of I-70. The deer are massive. My last doe was 300# no lie. Simular to Nebraska. And a lot of deer as well. Marshal Mo. And North say 50 to 75 miles.
