Connor Dietrich’s 2023 youth deer seasons began in Illinois. Two days of warm weather and high winds had the deer movement stifled.
We did not see a single deer from the stand or the blind. But he never complained.
When I asked him if he wanted to come to the Missouri season he said, “Absolutely, Grandpa. We just can’t give up.”
There is no quit in this kid.
Our Missouri youth deer season was coordinated and guided by a great friend and co-founder of the Mid-Mo Reapers YouTube channel.
Both Connor and I assist Preston Spencer with this amazing outdoor channel focusing on keeping hunting and fishing traditions alive.
Preston had us set up on private property in central Missouri.
