I went on a three day Managed Muzzleloader hunt this weekend. Just had to baby my ankle so did a lot of sitting. That was fine as the many other hunters kept the deer moving. Had a real blast though I had a pretty nice buck stolen from me. I went to get help from the Rangers to get him out and he was gone when we went back for him. Along with my tag unfortunately. The guys who stole him were not even suppose to have been hunting in there as it was closed to any but those drawn for the hunt. They were seen loading my buck and high tailing it out of the area. The bucks were realy responding to grunt calls and doe bleats. The one I shot came charging in twice and then walked right up to a scent wick saturated with Tinks 69 Doe in Estrus. Here's a pic of me inspecting a very nice buck rub. Found lots of scrapes too. I think the Rut is coming in way early this year, along with the cold weather.

Oh, we now have Elk in Missouri and not just those the Conservation Dept. relocated here. They are coming in from those stocked in Arkansas.

Stinkn deer thieves. I had a friend who lost a 180 class deer a few years back to thieves. The penalty should be a linchin for that.

Trust me Steve, a rope is too good for them. However a skinning knife will skin more than just deer! ;) What hurts most is that I know that my hunting years are numbered and I realy would like one nice Buck on the wall before I can no longer hunt and that stolen Buck would have been it. If I ever run accross them again, or anyone like them, they might just find themselves occupying that empty spot on my wall! :angry:

Man that really stinks. Sure hope they get their just rewards. I just figured it out, we live too far apart.

Nope, afraid not. It was only a 3 day Managed Muzzleloader hunt and was too close to being over to really bother with even trying.

Yep Paul, I agree. :)
