The Great Midwest is one of the greatest producers of foodstuffs for the entire world. The familiar red or green tractors slowly roaming vast fields are a welcome site in the Midwest, harvest time is a traditional time of joy and festivals.
Missouri, Kansas Deer Hunting
Along with corn, beans, wheat & milo, Missouri and Kansas are also great sources for beef, pork, poultry, grains, and vegetables.
The Midwest also offers wonderful hunting opportunities for all sorts of game. Probably the two most sought after species for Midwest hunters are deer and turkey.
The turkey and deer seasons start this year in Missouri with bow season on the 15th of September. Archers will be headed to their stands early on Wednesday morning hoping to catch a view of something tasty to take home for dinner.

God it was a beautiful weekend, we hauled the camper down 71 HWY to our family farm on the River near Virginia, MO. Saturday after I had the water, electric and sewer hooked up I took the John Deere down to the bottom-land, where the River meets Walnut Creek.
The River and the creek were really swollen, going over the bridges near Nyhart we saw the Bates County Drainage Ditch was nearly to its limits too.
We lost yet another tree down by the river, seems we lose more trees each year than we can plant. I spooked up a young deer from the brush, watching that cotton white tail bouncing away made me long for deer season this Fall.
Saturday was hot, muggy and we saw a bit of rain, I snapped a few pics of the flooded creek, I took a picture of the deer I spooked up, but he didn't show up well in the photos.
Sunday was breezy at first, but the heat was getting more intense when we got out of church. I love visiting the Happy Hill Church of God, Pastor Ron and his wife raise the roof with some of the best old time gospel music I've ever heard. I look forward to going there when I can. Fathers Day is one of those special occasions. After church we headed on into Butler, MO for Dinner.
One of our favorite places to eat Sunday dinner is the Flaming Lantern in Butler, MO. We usually try to get a spot near the fireplace.
Driving the gravel roads of Bates County, MO I sure saw a lot of flooding. A fortunate few had managed to get some crops in, but so much of the Bates County Farmland was flooded and simply too wet to plow.
Some of the cropland in Bates County looked like it had been planted before it was flooded, darn shame all those good crops under water. Bates County has some very productive, rich soil, but when the floods come, there's an awful lot of damage.
Guess we can look forward to a great harvest of some winter wheat.
Anyhow, if we can help you with your find any hunting land, cropland or a home on the range in KS or MO
, give us a holler. 816-313-8876.

Hunting In Bates County!
I was out at the Marais des Cygnes River today with my Grandson Cody. I got some really great photographs but we didn't score any turkeys.
My Grandson Cody was helping with the deoys. had a great time, but we never did see any turkeys. We spent the rest of the day, listening to the birds sing and the Marais des Cygnes River run by. We took some time out to visit the other side of the Marais des Cygnes where the old hay maker bridge fell in. We found some really drunk spoonbill fishers. Seems you can't snag spoonbill properly unless your really drunk.
We had a great time, even if we didn't find any turnkeys. Seems turkeys are scarce this year. I was reading a blog about Midwest hunting and it seems that the turkey population is pretty poor this year.
We thought we had some decent pictures, so we just wanted to share them. The bridge is the old bridge over the Marais des Cygnes River. While it is not the old Hay Maker Bridge it is one of the old river bridges that has survived all this time. We took a bunch of photos as the sun was going down. I was hoping to get a shot of the old Nyhart sign, but it has disappeared recently.
Wishing I was back home on the marais des cygne river!
I hate living in the city, I look forward every week to heading south, working my but off at the farm and listening the sound of my beloved marais des cygne river.
Last weekend I was down there, it rained all morning, but my grandson Cody and I sat it out and scouted for turkeys and morel mushrooms. We didn't find any of either, but we did at least get the turkeys to talk to us.
When the rain ended, the sun came out, we laid in the dew covered grass and listened to the sounds of the frogs singing, the birds chirping and the marais des cygne river rushing by
I look forward to Saturday, when I will once again be down in Rich Hill, wandering the banks and listening to the beautiful sounds of wildlife and my beloved river.
Come on out and go fishing with us, we're usually near the spot where the old Haymaker Bridge was. It fell down many years ago, but it still draws many fishermen and campers to the site.
