Born in Missouri and been here for 44 years (thats my age). Hunted everything here that you need a license for and some things you don't need a license for. I hunted out west in Colorado and Wyoming for pronghorn, muledeer and pdogs. Always had good luck harvesting game out there but not ever able to come up with a good trophy (always hunted poor boy style; DIY). I love to get in that open country and spot and stock game. The pdogs are a great added bonus to my big game hunting. I would love to go in the late spring or early summer just to pdog hunt. I have gotten a RRA ar-15 varminter in 223 and a Savage LRPV in 22-250 for this purpose. I am trying to get optics bought for both (Sightrons?). I used a Ruger #1V in 223 before acquring these other two guns. I will use these 22 calibers back here in Mo to shoot coyotes, groundhogs, crows and lots of paper. I have 2 beagles for rabbit hunting, 1 english pointer for bird hunting, 1 walker coonhound for coonhunting. Love to see good dog work. I use all types of firearms(rifle,muzzleloader,pistol,rimfires) and bows to take my game!!! As the log-on name implies I huntall types of game, Just ask my wife.
