After hunting eight wonderful days in my beloved Ozarks, the time came for Chasing Spring to travel to Northeast Missouri to KT’s Trophy hunts to meet Megan Shipman, my next Chasing spring hunter.
I hunted one day with Megan last year without success during the 2010 Mo season, so this 2011 hunt was a rematch to do everything we could to finally get her a gobbler.
As we drove six hours north, we left behind terrible flooding, rain and wind as on our arrival to Kt’s, the sun was actually shining. My good friend Kevin Small of Kt’s trophy hunts, invited Chasing Spring at no cost to hunt his high quality managed properties, and also donated guiding, lodging and meals to help Megan take her first turkey.
Northeast Missouri like all other places we hunted this spring, was way behind, a late spring, early season open woods with stubborn gobblers and little gobbling after leaving the roost.
Hope you enjoy the photo gallery and from here I will let the photos and video tell the rest of the story of our battle with open country gobblers of Northeast Missouri.
