Overall Impression: best hunt I've been on

Spent the week of Nov. 3-8 at the J$S camp in Scotland Co. Missouri., just barely over the Iowa line. I can't say enough good things about the place or the people running it. I've been on numerous outfitted trips before and this was top notch in all respects. The guides are fantastic and really know the deer. They spend many hours glassing and figuring out how to get their clients on good deer. They have alot of good deer. Hit the rut pretty good this year and saw many bucks chasing and fighting. Had numerous deer within range before finally arrowing a nice 10 point cruising a strip of timber between two corn fields... picture perfect. My brother in law passed a 140 class buck the first day, saw many deer bigger, just not in range. Still, he agrees that this is a quality outfit run by good folks who genuinely want to give their clients a good hunt. I tagged out the fourth day but continued to doe hunt and film a little. As it happens, I had and even bigger buck walk right under me and hang around for several minutes. At least a 150 10 point. Got some good footage as he wandered into a bean field and bred a doe. To also make the trip memorable, I spotted on three occasions a totally albino hen turkey. Great hunting, classic stand setups, attention to detail and good people. We rebooked for the Iowa camp next year immediately. Can't wait.
