    Well after hunting hard in youth season the kid's trigger finger was pretty itchy. Opening morning of MO rifle season started pretty slow with not much movement. Then about 8 am this buck ran into the plot, I grunted he stopped broadside and the kid dropped him. Hit him a little back and high (liver and spine) so he went about five feet. Same blind and plot as his first doe and the double bearded gobbler last spring. I need to reseed with some clover but I hate to jinx it! Deer heart is on the menu for tonight, that was his first question on walking up to it that he hopes he didn't hit it in the heart! Made it to the CWD check station early so there was about 10 MDC employees with no line so he thought that was pretty cool with all of them asking questions about the hunt.

    So with the kid's buck hanging went looking for one myself.

    This guy walked right to me a about 2 pm. Wide just no tine length, hopefully he keeps his head down and makes another season. If he stumbles by when I have a bow it'll be a little tougher!

    I did see one shooter Sunday but couldn't make it work. Had to head back home, so after a 1.5 days my rifle season comes to an end. The good part is we filled the tag I really wanted to get filled. To see how excited a kid gets brings it all back, no worrying if he is big enough old enough, none of that. Just hunting!

    Congratulations to the kid. That looked like a pretty good buck that you passed.

    Thanks George. That buck would have probably been in trouble if I hadn't field dressed, hung, and skinned the kid's deer that morning! Getting soft in my old age.
