A couple of years ago I was out riding my atv behind the house during archery season when I ran into 3 first time elk hunters from Missouri who were really struggling. After talking to them for a while I offered to show them some areas that I knew held elk. I saw them a few days later and they thanked me for the help getting them into some elk.( they got a cow and saw 3 bulls). They offered to take me whitetail hunting in Missouri but when I tried contacting them all of the numbers they gave were bogus and left me with kind of a bad taste in my mouth. I have family with property in Nebraska and Eastern Colorado that allow us to hunt does but not bucks since they have it leased to an outfitter. We have nice white tails here but I would have to apply as a first choice and I would miss hunting muleys too much to do that. I have offered to swap hunts before and offered a horseback elk hunt with me and my friend in the wilderness here in exchange for a good whitetail hunt but it seemed as though most of the respondents did not give me a comfy able feeling. I figured that a public land hunt in the Midwest sounded like a cool adventure. IM NOT GOING TO HAVE TO SIT IN A TREE ALL DAY AM I????????
