Tecomate Rut Report Week 9 – 10/15/12 – ALABAMA
It’s October in Dixie
For those of us in the southeast and in many areas of the country bow season has opened and hunting is in full swing. I have read some great hunting reports throughout the country from fellow bow hunters. It sounds like the season has gotten off to fantastic start for so many. I have also read several reports involving 180+” deer taken in several areas of the country. It’s amazing to me to hear and read about so many giant deer being taken on a regular basis. It goes to show you how good nutrition, age structure and overall Quality Deer Management practices will dramatically improve any deer herd. I am especially thankful for pioneers in the QDM world Tecomate’s David Morris and Gary Schwartz and organizations like QDMA have paved the way in creating an overall plan for better deer management. Without their foresight and vision we may still be applying the old “if it’s brown it’s down” philosophy. Thankfully we have taken their ideas and we are truly in the golden age of deer hunting.

Tecomate Rut Report Week 4 – 9/10/12 - ALABAMA
First week of September in Alabama has always been a special time of the year.
First, it marks an “official” opening of hunting season in many states, including the Yellowhammer state. Dove season gives us the perfect opportunity to take younger kids into the field and pass along the heritage and camaraderie of our great sport of hunting. In addition, you can’t find many things with a more flavorful taste than a grilled mourning dove. Secondly, this week marks the beginning of another college football season. The pageantry, passion and the deep rooted love of college football is a staple in our great nation and it’s especially important throughout the South.

Hebrews 6:7 – 7 For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God.
We as hunters and land managers are deeply rooted in our desire to cultivate the ground in which God has entrusted us. We disk, we plant, and we turn the ground under which helps produce fruit for the wildlife we pursue. God has given us the ability to take care of His creations by nurturing the land. Our cultivation practices benefit many wildlife species.
