    Need Some Help... I have some friends that go to a guide in missouri whitetail hunting every year. I am planning on going with them this year. Though they have said there is a ton of state land in Missouri, that has decent hunting. Does anyone know of any good area of missouri to try or if the state land there is any good. I may try state land next year instead of paying a guide.

    Investigate the Mark Twain National Forest.

      State land can have features deer like to hide in where private land may not. Also, the additional hunters on State can be a plus if you sit still and let them move the deer around. Can't tell you how many time I have sat on private land wishing there were some hunters to move the deer.

        Took my best buck on the Mark Twain in 1989 a 17 pointer. However, there is good hunting in the Northern tiers of counties and the bucks average better antlers and larger bodies. Check out Adair and Macon Counties. Nice bucks come out of Hidden Hollow and Atlanta State Wildlife areas every year. Kirksville and Macon are the nearest towns. The Special D's meat locker in Macon takes in some monsters every year. Last month I got the 11 pointer I took on opening day near Hidden Hollow back from the taxidermist. Get you motel reservations asap.

          BTW if you click my name and check the pic files on my profile page you can see that buck and others.

            Thanks everyone, I live in Michigan and the state land here gets hit very hard. Sounds like Missouri may be a little better.
