Hello folks. My name is Trevor from central Missouri. Through many lazy hours of YouTube (The Hunting Public) are my favs! My hunting desires have changed. I only hunted the family farm twice this season. Once w crossbow and once w rifle. My time has been mostly spent on 1500 acres of public. I did miss a buck w the bow and could not find my muzzleloader buck, so as far as bringing home the meat I failed. These were all ground hunting adventures. Ive hunted from my same warren and sweat climber since 2000, which is when I killed my first deer. Bow kill. Hooked ever since. Moving on to focusing on public ground for bucks, its time to invest in a saddle. I appreciate the knowledge and friendliness from your forum. Good luck to all that deserve it!
