Tecomate Rut Report - Eastern MT - November 11, 2014


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


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.

South Dakota Produces Another ‘Majestic’ Buck


The Fall of 2009 began what became an annual and much anticipated whitetail hunting trip to the Majestic Ranch, located in the great state of South Dakota. The 13,000 acre working cattle ranch is on the western side of the Missouri River in Gregory County and is home to some of the largest whitetails and mule deer in the entire state.  Randy Odenbach and his crew have been hosting hunters and managing the Majestic Ranch for nearly 20 years and the hard proof is in the results from good nutrition and even better wildlife management practices.  Hunting at the Majestic is limited to 12-15 hunters a year with strict guidelines on taking upper-age-class bucks

Travel plans call for flying into Sioux Falls and a quick 3-hour drive to the ranch.  Heading west out of Sioux Falls you enter the sprawling wide open agriculture and farm land which reminds you of the other Midwestern states known for producing big bucks. As you cross the Missouri River, the transition to more rolling hills and small timber draws are home to the bucks we were after.  I arrived at the lodge on Friday evening to stories of the day as the archery hunters had arrived earlier in the day and were able to get on stand immediately that afternoon.  The first afternoon all of the bow hunters saw several bucks and two hunters were able to get shots off on bucks that would push 150”.  Unfortunately both shots missed their mark, but the optimism for the next few days was extremely high.

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


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.

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!
