Hey everybody I live in Kearney, Mo and we been getting plenty of rain but just not enough sun! Checked a couple of spots around Smithville Lake and still nothing. The ground seems soft and wet enough so I was just wondering if anyone has found any around my area. Please let me know! Thanks.

Yes sir! It's always good hunting up this way, I've shot 5-6 bucks over 150 inches. The one in my picture scored 188 but I like to round up to 190! :) There is some good public ground up this way that would be worth the drive for a weekend bow hunt, I would stay far away during the rifle season though!

Thanks leaker!

NWMO - You're making me green with envy...

So I'm thinking the ground temps are still just a tad low. I reckon by this weekend we should start to see things really taking off after some warmer temps and sun. The green undergrowth is starting to get thick, and my buddy has found a total of a dozen good sized ones over along the Kaw over the last 3 days. I'm going to try to get out tomorrow after work and check a couple of my spots on the far NE side of Independence.

@FITTYSPENCE there is usually all sorts of farms for sale ranging from 40's to big row crop farms. I would check a local real estate website and see whats out there. My uncle works for United Country and they usually have a lot of farms listed!

@MOShroomSniper let me know how the Thursday hunt goes. I plan on trying again this Saturday and hunting pretty hard. I'm with you on the temps, I think this weekend should make a few pop.

Yeah I went out yesterday and looked for a couple hours and only found 2 beefsteaks. I'm thinking it needs a couple days to warm up the ground so this Saturday should be good!

Looked for a bit yesterday and today and came up empty handed. Though I came across a guy with a bag of a dozen small greys he had found. Mayapples are still small and it seems early. I think next weekend will be prime time. But...They are up!

Same here, I checked a couple honey holes of mine up here in Kearney again today and came up empty handed. Looks like we need to get down to the river because that's where everyone's finding em!

Has anyone checked the Smithville Lake area and had any luck? I'm thinking about going out there early tomorrow and looking since none of my spots are producing yet!

Don't ya think that there are way too many people around Smithville Lake to fool with it? I know there is one heck of a LOT of ground up there, but it's also way too popular, too? Just wondering...........
