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 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.

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:
