Use your cell phone to share your trophy

Bag a buck with your cell phone and share your trophy with Mid Missouri.

The Columbia Missourian and MyMissourian offer deer hunters a simple way to let friends and neighbors share your success. Hunters can use their cell phone to snap a photo of their trophy, then send it to MyMissourian from the field.  We will put it into a special gallery of the region’s successful deer hunts.

Here’s how to participate:

  • Add this address to your phone book or contact list on your cell phone:  “”. If your phone doesn’t have e-mail, don’t worry.  The same address will work as a phone number to send Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) photos to us.
  • Get that deer.
  • Use your mobile phone to take a picture of the deer.  Get close and, if possible, have a friend take the picture with you in it.  Try to make the photo as family-friendly as possible, avoiding big wounds.
  • Try to include your name and comments.  You can also do that with a separate text message or e-mail.  We may call you back for more information.
  • Send it to us.  You don’t have to wait — if you have a cell signal, do it from the field.
  • Tell your friends to check for your photo.
