Do your homework thoroughly. Scout preseason for sign.

Critique each hunt and record. Eventually patterns will develop.

Keep your mouth shut.



The best piece of advise here is "Keep your mouth shut"



Good advice.

There are thousands of acres of land to hunt in Missouri gun season if you want to hunt Tues-Thursday. I really like the point of hunting during non-peak times like weekends.
I grew up in KC and hunted public land the first 20 years I could hunt. Dad would always take off all week and go back down to hunt by himself when I was back in school during the week. He most always harvested another deer and said no one was ever around.

I've hunted a lot of public land in Missouri. The state is blessed with an amazing amount due mostly to the sales tax that goes to the outdoors. The public properties along the Iowa border get a lot of hunting pressure during November though.
