Rut Report October 27, 2014 - Illinois & Iowa


Illinois – We’ll I’m just coming off a hunt in southern Illinois, so I thought I’d share what we saw as it pertains to the rut in that area. The week Oct 20-25 we hunted heavily in the Carmi, IL area. The challenges were warmer temperatures and a substantial amount of grain crops in the ground. We saw signs of younger bucks chasing, but it would appear most of the mature bucks remained either nocturnal or stayed in the corn.  Now with that said, the farmers were going all out, so that will push the mature bucks back to the timber and alternative food sources. My best estimation if you are hunting this area is that if the cooler temps come in, you may be within 10-14 days of seeing your rut activity pick up. One good cold spell could be the game changer so get ready!

2014 Early Season Whitetail Adventures – Central Kansas & South Texas


David Morris and I started off our 2014 seasons in Central Kansas in mid September, hunting big whitetails with outfitter Larry Ellis of Extreme Wildlife Adventures. Our early season muzzleloader hunt with Larry was terrific! And it was capped off by David and me both taking great bucks on the next to the last day of the hunt with our Traditions Striker Fire 50 cal muzzleloader rifles. In addition Bubba Belk of Sheridan Montana took a true world class giant of a buck on the last afternoon that taped out at over 232” gross B&C. All the action was captured on Tecomate TV

My Leupold rangefinder called the distance to my heavy beamed Kansas 6 x 4, 150 yards, so I held on center of the broadside buck`s heart/lung area while taking a bench-rest style brace on two Bog Pods in my ground blind, rock solid! Try it you`ll like it. The Traditions Smack-Down 250 grain bullet propelled by 110 grains of Blackhorn 209 muzzleloader powder hit its mark precisely. Great hunt!

Tecomate Rut Report – KS – Oct 16, 2014

It’s mid-October and not much is happening here in Kansas, or probably anywhere else in the whitetail world for that matter. I know there are exceptions, but generally speaking, the rut is still several weeks away. However, the telltale signs are beginning to show. Small scrapes near field edges, pencil thin saplings shined up or broken in half, all suggest that the long awaited annual event is about to begin. For the hunter it is a difficult time. The once visible summer, see them whenever you want to bucks, have vanished. I don’t mean they have gone nocturnal, I mean they have all but disappeared. Trail cameras that daily showed multiple mature bucks are now lucky to produce a couple of 1-1/2 old wannabe’s. My only success has been to find the few remaining standing Milo fields and hunt the trails leading to this important food source. Patience and persistence is the name of the game during the dreaded October lull. Keep the faith, better times are just around the Halloween corner.

Tecomate Crew Enjoying Big Antlered Success This Fall


It’s been quite the month of September for Team Tecomate, which is currently in the midst of a big antlered blitz across the Great Plains and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains as the crew films shows for a new season.

Earlier in the month, Team Tecomate – Jordan Shipley, David Morris and others – notched a few deer tags with their muzzleloading smokepoles.

Including one tag that was used on a world-class big buck bruiser, perhaps one of the best whitetails ever captured on film.
