well, im working up here and decided to go to a wma up here and you wouldnt believe how wonderful the gandfish lay out there hunting grounds, boy the rubs up here are HUGE like bulls with antlers. ridges and bottoms divided by corn and milo fields with drains and tall grass in the middle with all the snow we went looking for sheds but didnt find any, i will post some pics tomorrow, if im not here next fall ill make a trip to bowhunt up here next year..invade someone elses state for a change..i must say we are more hospitable than most states to out of state hunters.......maybe ought to look out for arkansas more than the traveling hunters

We turkey hunted some private land in North Central, MO a few years ago and heard some good things about the WMA's in the area while we were there but we never got the chance to check them out. From the maps and booklets we picked up they looked like they should have some good hunting though.

I used to pheasant hunt with my dad in south Iowa literally on the MO border. There is a ton of game around there. MO is awfully proud of their turkey licenses, but they've got to one of the best deals going for out-of-state deer hunters.

Which WMA? A buddy of mine went to a place called Brickyard WMA or something like that. He had a great time and killed a decent buck.

Did you hunt around Mt Ayer by any chance. That is where we use to go. The place we go now is unmatched anywhere. Regent, ND.

Actually, that's exactly where we'd go. My dad had been going there forever. He became friends with one of the farmers there back in the days when you'd go knock on doors and get permission to hunt. We'd go stay at his house. It's nice country up there. The birds just got worse and worse though.

Killed a nice Tom at Platte Falls when I lived up around KC. Had a doe run right through the archery range while we were shooting one day and also called up a bobcat while turkey hunting. Abundant game in that area.
