All these get togethers gave me an idea. Our Archery Season starts around Sept.15th and runs into the second week of January. We have the Drury-Mincy Wildlife Area just 30 minutes from Branson. You all have heard me talk about it. My best pal Paul has finaly seen it and can vouge for how awesome it is. Over 5,000 acres, free outdoor archery range ( right next to the camping area with backstops, marked yardages and even an elevated platform for shooting from), over 50 large food plots planted in turnips, clover, alfalfa, Bio Logic, ect. and Jason just heard that they are planting several other new food sources as well. Paul can tell you how sweet those food plots are. They blew him away.
Some have a clover-alfalfa mix and are plumb thick with rich healthy growth. Most food plots have a pond and there are several creeks. It is set up where you can drive right up to many or get out and walk to the others which have roads you can walk in on. There is plenty of forest to get away from roads as well. It's surrounded on 3 sides by Bull Shoals Lake which is famous for Bass and Walleye fishing. The campground is free and can handle around 250 people. You could bow hunt all you like or go fishing as well. The best part is it would only cost you the price of your out of state tag, travel and food. They also provide free maps, of the whole area, which marks all the food plots, roads and trails. The whole area has easy access. You can drive a car to many spots. A few require a truck though, Just for ground clearance. Of an evening you could come into Branson and attend one of the many awesome shows. ( We could get you group rates ) Paul can also tell you how fantastic the shows are too. Anyways, thought I'd through the idea your way. Anyone interested just let me know, if not no biggy. Just thought I'd through out the offer. I'd be happy to answer any questions. I'll post the price of an out of state tag later. Gotta run, late for Heart Rehab.....Norm
