Tecomate Rut Report – NORTH EAST US – October 22, 2013
As we enter the last week in October, things are changing big time. And considering the north east has entered a fast cold snap, things will change fast!
Right now mature bucks are getting on their feet but still primarily under the cover of darkness. Rubs and scrapes are popping up all over and you will notice those field edge scrapes are getting torn deeper. Young, immature bucks between 1.5 thru 3.5 years of age are already bumping does around and this is normal.

Tecomate Rut Report – Northeast US – October 14, 2013
Let’s face it, if we could figure deer out every time it might not be as fun. But one thing is for certain, when you are trying to figure out bucks during the month of October, it’s no easy task. The only easy part about October is that the close we get to Halloween, the higher the probability we will cross paths with a mature buck!
During the first 2 thirds of October there is a significant transformation taking place in the woods that is understood by some but vastly misunderstood by hunters across the North East. Food sources are changing rapidly, weather is changing and bucks are settling rank and territory. Most mature buck movement is switching over entirely to after dark and as much as we have the drive to go hunting, many guys do more damage to their hunting properties by hunting for the big boys when the chances of them walking in daytime is very, very slim.

Tecomate Rut Report – IA - October 9, 2013
We’ve received our first blast of cooler air this last week. The patterns are starting to change and shape up as we get within 4 weeks of Rut taking full force.
This last week I’ve seen several younger bucks start sparing. The mature bucks have separated themselves from the bachelor groups, but remain very nocturnal. The occasional scrape has also been popping up. All of this tells me Rut is just around the corner so get ready.

Tecomate Rut Report – GA – September 13, 2013
Most bucks have lost their velvet and starting to break up from their bachelor groups. Getting lots of nighttime photos on my Reconx cameras. I am currently planting my fall Tecomate food plots in preparation for the fall hunting season. Our bow season starts this weekend on Sept. 14th so hopefully I can get my two boys on a nice buck this weekend.

2013 Hunting Blog – KANSAS – September 11, 2013
Brock and I are hunting in KS this week during early youth season. It has been over 100 degrees past 3 days. Little daytime deer movement due to very hot weather. Seen lots of does and several young bucks so far. Getting lots of big bucks on Reconx cameras at night. No rutting activity. Bucks are still in bachelor groups. One more day of hunting left. Down to the 4th quarter for us!

The Plains of Kansas with Tall Tine Outfitters
After a successful and exciting open country muzzleloader hunt in the Sand Hills of Nebraska in early December 2011, David Morris and I headed south to Protection Kansas to hunt giant post rut Kansas whitetails with my old friend and hunting buddy Ted Jaycox of Ocala Fl. Ted and I grew up hunting together around Ocala Fl, our home town. And I say “old friend” because Ted it was nearly 40 years ago when we were both teenagers that we haunted the local whitetail herd of Central Fl. Ted and I share some terrific memories from our “Good Old Days” afield. We would surely relive some of those adventures during the week`s hunt at Tall Tine.
Here are a few of the memories Ted and I share:
