Bow season starts Saturday, September 15!  I'm already in pre-rut.  We're getting lots of great pics for our Trail Cam Contest every day.  Thank you for sending those photos.  It's looking like you voters will have your hands full!

In addition to our Trail Cam Contest, our annual Big Buck contest has begun.  The entry fee is $10 a person for each class.  The classes include Archery, Rifle and Youth.  The archers might get lucky and take a second buck.  If you do that, there's a $10 entry fee for that second class.

You can print off the entry form right here. Drop off the pre-registration form and the registration fee to the KIX 105 Studios at 2209 S. Limit in Sedalia.

All of the proceeds from the Big Buck Contest will be split between MO Kids Outdoors and Dream to Ride, a therapeutic riding organization for adults and children with special needs.

We've got some awesome prizes from our sponsors this year.  Hunters in the Rifle class will have a chance to win a Savage Axis in your caliber from Vincent's Gun and Pawn.  Rusty Toad Archery has provided a Bowtech CPX Insanity bow for the winner of the Archery class and a Bowtech Youth Bow for the winner of the youth class.  We also have shoulder mounts from Cummings Wildlife Studio and Anderson Taxidermy and a European mount from Charlie's Taxidermy.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers for my mother-in-law, she has had a turnaround.  We'll see you on September 22 at 10:00 at Clover Dale Park for our Field Day.  Until next week, remember:  shoot straight, because if it's brown, it's down!

The winner of last week's DQ Question of the Week was Lauren Abbot of Nixa.  Here's our new DQ Question of the Week!
