Mark Seacat is on his first whitetail hunt in the Show Me State. He’s after a nice buck but is being plagued by unusually warm weather. Here’s his on-stand report via text message:

U****pdate (sent 8:46 p.m.): I passed on a small eight pointer tonight … I’m headed up to Iowa in the morning to shower and file my story and photos.

(Sent 3:27 p.m.): It was really hot this morning and I only saw one doe …

I’m headed out now and am planning to set up a decoy over a standing soy bean field. Hopefully we’ll see the big boy again tonight.

Check back tomorrow for more updates and photos.
