we have had a gang of missouri (by the ozarks) bear hunters up here every fall for years, and they've had good luck, stayed at my sister's place, stored their rigs there, midnite bonfires etc - nice bunch.
well this fall my nephew & his wife took them up on an exchange offer for missouri deer hunting - what a treat! dave sez there were like 5 times the deer down there, they hunted about 1200 acres bordering some kinda state-owned trophy hunt area, and of course basically ignore signs and fences.
well they had a ball, he got a 10-pointer and she got a 4, their bunch of 12 hunters got 11 deer, all but one a buck. told about all the property these guys had and how they lived down a long dirt road and the pretty country and such. the people were super and they came back duly impressed! even if you just sold them gas, thanks again for making the youngsters welcome :)
