Deer Season: A Love-Hate Relationship

Author: Mike Roux

I hate deer season. No, I really do not. Anyone who knows me and/or reads this blog knows that deer hunting is a large part of my life and of my family’s heritage and tradition. In fact, I am right in the middle of one of my best seasons in a long time. However, having spent over 100 hours in the woods over the past few weeks, there are a few observations I would like to share about the frustrations, aggravations and consternations of deer season.

The Great Outdoors With Mike Roux

The Invisible Rut

Author: Mike Roux

As the sun rose on opening day of the 2013 Missouri firearms deer season, I found myself in familiar surroundings. This was the fourth season that my good buddies Roger Lewis, Mike Hamski and I have shared this great farm in northeast Missouri. As good as this spot has been to us over the years, this weekend was a bit slower to develop. With temperatures near 70 degrees and winds just about that strong, it was pretty slow in comparison to past opening weekends.
