Well our bow season is winding down time to break out the .308 win. and knock some more down. Had a good year with the bow and managed to scratch out a few. I hope every one has had or will have a very succesfull season.

Dusted off the muzzleloader today and hopefully if i get off work in time i'm going to the range tomorrow to make sure she's ready to go for the next part of the season. I still hunt several places that are bow only so i'm not ready to put it away just yet.

I'm from Texas, and the season's in missouri sure are different.

Bow Season Starts middle of September, then Nov15-25 if rifle season, yes just 10 days of rifle. After that its MuzzleLoader / Bow Season again for another month or so.

The whole reason I got in to bow hunting was b/c I moved to Missouri. Mostly b/c if you don't bow hunt then you only have a 10 Day rifle season to take a deer in.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

The 1st part of bow season here ends Oct 31st then it's muzzleloader for a week then back to bow till the 21st then gun opens for 2 weeks then back to muzzleloader for a week then another week of archery then gun again till Jan 11th. It's all over the place, if i didn't keep a card with the season dates on me i'd just be confused all the time. But we have a balanced time for archery, muzzleloader and gun. We used to only have 1 week of muzzleloader but they went to two weeks a few years ago. I usually just bow hunt during muzzleloader but i think i'm gonna try it a little more this year.

Thats a mess. Here bow season opens october 1 and runs till the end of january.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

well i think i made it sound more confusing than it is. you can archery hunt the whole time and you can hunt with a muzzleloader during rifle you just can't go down a weapon

I might have to take it up next year. I used to own an old hawkin's style muzzle loader, but I think if I bought a new one it would have to be an inline muzzle loader.

Or if crossbows are legal during muzzle loader season, that could be fun too, I need to look into that.

deer season in missouri goes sept. 15th til the november 15th, then it is rifle season for 11 days, then it is archery for another 52 days, and you also have muzzle loader for 10 or so days starting the weekend after thankssgiving, plus you also have a antlerless deer only gun season for about 10 days in december also. This means you can use a firearm for deer hunting for about 30 plus days when you figure rifle and muzzleloader, plus you also have a total of 118 days of bow season to hunt deer also , and this does not count management hunts held..
