First off, thanks for stopping by our blog! There's been a dry spell for several months here in Missouri and boy have we been grateful for the rain the past few days and the cool weather to boot! Thankfully with the rain and cooler weather it will help with deer season approaching next month, out here there's lots of deer and turkey for hunting and most people around enjoy the cooling weather because it makes for a better hunting season (venison steaks, I can just taste them now! *drool*).
Did You know?
There's some good spots around for hunting too, or just for sightseeing here in Missouri, but the best I would say would be around Mark Twain National Forest, which is a sizable piece of hunting property! Not many know (and I didn't till recently) that Mark Twain National Forest was huntable, that's over 1,000 acres of woods and creeks! All you need is a hunting permit and voila, you have thousands of acres to roam around in. We have some great lease spots available near the forest on our website.
There's a great Festival coming up the last weekend in September in Mountain View, MO, it's called Pioneer Days, where folks come from all around, even other states, to dress up like pioneers, check out the local blacksmiths who still do it the old fashioned way or the many stalls of homemade or hand crafted items that locals from all around have made during the year to offer to passerby's.
This is the time of year that everyone gets together, has a great time and relives the past to get away from the current way of life a little. There's music, dancing, face painting and lots more that happens around, even horse rides for the kids, they can be a cowboy for a day! It's really a lot of fun, I always take my family every year and there's never a year that's the same, there's new people and new crafts every time, if you get a chance to come down, I hope you will because Pioneer Days only comes around once a year! (It's fun to wear fake teeth and pose as a hillbilly in overalls and a straw hat, it's my favorite! Heeyuck!)
