Tecomate Rut Report – MS – January 27, 2015

image

For most states across the country, this year’s deer season has already come to a dreadful end. However, for a few southern states deer hunting is still open for business. One of those is my home state of Mississippi. For those of us who hunt the Magnolia state, the season goes out at the end of this week. In the southern-most region of the state the season will be open until the middle of February.

Tecomate Rut Report – AL – January 12, 2015

image

Well its now officially 2015 and for most of the hunters across the country the rut is just a distant memory as their weather turns bitter cold. But here in central Alabama, our weather is starting to cool off and bucks are beginning to show the signs of an imminent breeding season. Rubs and scrapes are popping up in travel corridors and bucks are starting to shadow does as they head to food sources and back into bedding areas in the morning.

Tecomate Rut Report – TX Hill Country – November 26, 2014

The hues of autumn are finally descending upon the Texas Hill Country. Mornings are a bit cooler in the 40’s with highs in the mid 70’s during the day. This crisp, cold weather have the wildlife and myself excited. Bucks have broken away from their bachelor groups and the last two weeks have been showing signs of pre-rut activity. Last weekend, I saw a minority of bucks birddogging does, sparing just a bit and some making scrapes. The acorn crop this year is abundant, but the early freezes we’ve had will force deer to find other sources of nutrients. If you planted a Tecomate food plot this year, hunt that area. Food plots are a great place to catch a glimpse of a big, mature buck trying to find a girlfriend. If food plots are not an option, grab the rattling horns and tease those trophies out of the cedar shadows. This Thanksgiving weekend should be prime time hunting!!! If buck fever happens to infect you, just remember to breathe and squeeze that trigger. Happy Thanksgiving, God Bless and Good Luck!!!

Tecomate Rut Report - Eastern MT - November 11, 2014

image

Dr. Ed Nighbert took a great old 10 point that was in hot pursuit of a doe late on Saturday afternoon in Eastern Montana. During the week that Ed and I spent hunting the river bottoms rut activity appeared to be progressing daily. We enjoyed moderate temps for the area during our stay with no significant weather changes during our hunt. There is a strong winter storm just hitting the Eastern Montana area today.

Significant snow and frigid temperatures are predicted. Hopefully the weather change will help get the rut cranked up into the frenzy level as Tecomate’s David Morris will head for Eastern Montana later this week Montana with Eric Lundgren of Remington Arms for what may be a perfectly timed rut hunt for big whitetails or mulies, hunters choice.

Tecomate Rut Report - KY - November 11, 2014

image

I shot my big buck following a doe yesterday morning at 8:30 am in KY. This huge 8-point was 6 yr old buck weighed over 260 lbs and had a 23” spread. The rut is in full swing here in Northern KY ( Scott County). Bucks are chasing does EVERYWHERE.  I saw a big non-typical chasing does the first morning but too far to shoot on film.  I passed on a 150” 10-point the second day.  We got some awesome footage of all of this rutting activity.

Tecomate Rut Report - Eastern Montana - 11/10/14

image

It’s been a terrific first two days hunting in Eastern Montana with Bill Perkins of Perkins Outfitting out of Miles City Montana. And the bucks here are off and running. Dr. Ed Nighbert and I are sharing camp for four days. Right now it’s Ed’s turn. We are hoping that Ed bags his big Montana buck sometime during the next 48 hours.

Yesterday I took a great old Montana river bottom 10-point that was likely 7 years old plus. My buck and his running buddies were busy trailing and bird-dogging does in a nearby alfalfa field at daylight yesterday. He got past me during the first morning hunt but reappeared from the tall grass surrounding the alfalfa field late the same afternoon. I was fortunate to get a pair of Leupold cross hairs the buck’s vitals at 180 yards. My Remington 700 7mm Rem Mag did the job from
a rock solid bench style rest consisting of two Bog Pod tripods set up in my ground blind.

Rut Report October 27, 2014 - Illinois & Iowa

image

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!
