Tecomate Rut Report – SW GA – September 17, 2014

My big whitetail contact Wendell Crews of Ocala, Fl has sent new trail cam pics from his well managed SW Ga farm. Wendell will be bowhunting this coming weekend.

Bucks still seem to be keeping to themselves at this time as are groups of does. However more single bucks are showing up individually at the supplemental feed stations. Some rubs have been observed. Looks like a good number of bucks in SW Ga are preparing for pre-rut. Some activity is occurring very early and late in the day but most movement is during the dark hours.

Tip #55 – Best Place to Hunt with Kids

Whenever hunting with kids, it is always better to hunt from an enclosed stand or ground blind so they can move when needed and game will not detect their movements.  It will also make it much more comfortable for them during periods of inclement weather (rain, snow, high winds, cold temperature, etc).

Tip #53 – Practice Closing the Deal

Closing the deal is where most problems occur. Big whitetails shake hunters up! Spend time at the range shooting your weapon of choice. Practice shooting at varying distances and conditions. Practice, practice, practice before your hunt!!!!! And be mentally prepared (if you are able) for the shot.

Tip #52 – Take Older Hunters Hunting

We often take kids hunting.  However, don’t forget to take older and/or elderly hunters (often dads, grandparents, or mentors) hunting whenever possible.

Tip #51 - Hunt Where Mature, Trophy Whitetails Live

This tip sounds simple enough, but it is the most common mistake made by trophy whitetail hunters.  Big, mature bucks are rare or absent across more than 90% of deer habitat in the U.S.  Even the best hunters cannot kill what is not there.

Tecomate Rut Report – KS – Week of September 8, 2014


Everything on schedule! Like clockwork, the bucks have begun to shed velvet and within the next few days it will be difficult to find a buck that is not in hard antlers. This event also signals a breakup of the summer friendships which have endured the past couple of months. This breakup makes patterning these early season bucks a little more difficult. However, with time spent scouting you will still see mature bucks creeping into secluded alfalfa fields at days end. Positioning stands near trails leading to this preferred food source can provide quality opportunities for early season bow hunters. Forget the heat, just hunt!

Tip #50 – Keep Your Powder Dry

Always keep your powder dry when muzzleloader hunting otherwise you may miss that shot at a buck-of-a-lifetime whenever the opportunity arrives.  During periods of snow, rain and/or high humidity, change out your powder at least once a day while hunting.
