Which video? I have more than one....
I see what you mean....yes.....it could be the same buck.
rmp you close to drake Missouri when you consider central gasconade county that's where I hunt
Drake, Bay, Swiss, Stony Hill.....those places are all in my general vicinity.
Send a couple of those down my way in Mt. Sterling would ya?
Wish I could but the deer and turkey on my land never listen to me, they just tolerate me.... ;-)
When I think of Mt. Sterling I always remember Schaeperkotter's Store. It was 20 years ago or thereabouts when I went there to get some kerosene. Walking in the door was like stepping back in time.....back to the early 1900's.
Thats a cool store ..Wooden floors ,,,,Where else can you get ...Groceries ,Hardware , fishing supplies ,shells/bullets ...sammich /home cooked food ...You can buy feed /grain and buy a tractor all at the same place ...Oh and Post Office as well AND Gas station
Yes I remember the wooden floors..... and the layout inside that was like an old General Store. And my kerosene was delivered through a hand pump that looked like it had been there for many decades.
Trust me, it hasn't changed.
Do you remember the old general store in Bay? I used to go there with my grandfather and we'd buy ice cream sandwiches and dynamite. :
If it hasn't changed for generations then somebody must be doing something right, at least in my opinion.
The Scottish say â€œThe father buys, the son builds, the grandchild sells, and his son begs.â€
Ha ha....what a combo....ice cream sandwiches and dynamite.... ;-) Safer though.....than, say......whiskey and dynamite.
I've never been in that store.....wish I had. Somewhere in my archives I have an old poem written by a woman, can't remember her name, about the town of Bay. My memory is a little foggy here but I think she wrote in in the 1920's or 30's maybe.
Well, that store is no longer there, not sure what happened to it, but I remember it very well as a kid. The ice cream sandwiches were good, and the rocks raining down on the awning of the house from the blasting was fun too.
The bay mo store or building is still there but it isnt in operation ..,,,But in it, a long time ago probably like 45 years ago i think... it closed up a few years later ,,,,Used to go to the church in bay during the summer and they had ice cream socials ,,,,best ice cream i ever had ,,,,,Cool stone buildings in that area Cooper hill has a neat old country store too ,,Someone turned it into a house
Yeah, the building is still there. It's about the same age as my house, maybe a little older.
I remember the bay and drake store going In There as a kid with my parents
Rmp would love to see that story you have in you archives I collect a lot of gasconade county stuff trying to preserve history of the area
I found the poem I was thinking about online and here's the link to a page which includes the poem along with some historical info about Bay and Little Bay. The name of the woman who wrote the poem is Johanna Stoehr Gumper. August Gumper (along with Elmer Waldecker) was the manager of the General Store in Bay from the 1930s to the 1970s according to the information on this page. So Johanna was probably the wife of August Gumper, though it's also possible that August was her father in law.
That's some great history that I thank you for. While I remember quite a bit of it, to see it in writing is something special.
