He's the biggest thing I've ever shot with a muzzle loader. I had no idea he was as big as he is when I shot him. Rifle season starts here Saturday and the rut has started and it's gonna be 28 degrees Saturday morning, I'm jacked up with one buck tag left :lol:

Today, driving past the Osage County Missouri court house parking, there was a parked, fairly large closed body truck with the back door open. The cargo portion of the truck was stacked full of fresh deer hides.

Deer hunters in Missouri killed 94,977 deer during the opening weekend of the November portion of the fall firearms deer season Nov. 11-12, according to preliminary data from the Missouri Department of Conservation. Osage County is 611 sq. mi. with 949 deer killed.

Edit: 15 Nov. The quantity of deer hides in the back of the truck prompted me to Google the topic. Also Googled "meat processers near me". Just guessing, around half of deer harvested in the county and surrounding counties were processed by one of the butcher shops. The hides from that number alone would easily fill a large truck body.

That's a large number but imagine how many deer were wounded, not found or not reported.

Have found partially decomposed deer and turkey on the acreage. Two deer and one turkey body would have been an easy retrieval.

Would imagine that there were a number of deer killed and butchered by land owners with farm tags that were not reported.

DNR estimates that there are 20 deer per square mile in Osage county, Mo. When the weather gets really cold and nasty, I have seen herds of huddled up deer. Believe the DNR estimate is pretty accurate.

While looking up information on deer hunting, I ran a cross a site that purchases hunted animal parts/skins. The site purchases armadillo shells. If the site location were near by, it would be worth picking up road killed armadillos.

I had never seen this deer before shooting it. A friend 1/2 a mile away found out I killed it and sent me these. He had been seeing him regularly on camera in early season.

No need to waste time getting out of the house in the cold to set in a tree stand when around here there is plenty of "road kill". There are 3 dead deer right now on state hwy 109 within 4 miles of my farm. Went to Nashville Monday and saw 5 dead ones on I-40 in a 15 mile stretch.
By the way, this is how we manage "road kill" here in Tennessee. Take a rattle can of orange paint and paint a circle around all "road kill" that you see in a stretch of road. Go back the next day and check same stretch. The unpainted ones are fresh and OK to harvest.

I skinned one once when I was younger after being hit by a car and I said never again. The meat was awfully bruised and the stench from everything inside being ruptured. whew.

Son shot a 8 point buck, 2 does, 2 each spike bucks, - - - - - - with game camera. Not close enough to the stand to take a shot.

2664 deer count as of 14 Nov 17, for Osage County, Mo. 13 year old girl shot an elk north of the Missouri river. My guess, escaped elk from one of the near by elk farms. Mo dept. of Conservation has confiscated the elk.

Local news paper publishes deer and other game photos. 29 photos for deer youth season, One deer 136 2/8, Boone and Crocket.
