Getting hist first taste of Midwest whitetail hunting, Mark Seacat waiting for a big 160-inch buck in Missouri. Here is his field report via text message:

(Sent Friday 12:11 p.m.) Passed on four small bucks under 20 yards this morning. A great heavy eight point passed by at 75 yards … ahhh!

(Sent Friday 8:04 a.m.) Last Day for me to fill my tag. After this it’s Jeff’s turn in Kansas. I already had a small eight pointer check out the scrape we’re on in the timber. I think it’s going to be a great day!

(Sent Thursday 1:03 p.m.) I passed another small eight pointer. He was about 15 inches better than the last one, but still not the buck we’re looking for.
