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!

Tecomate Crew Enjoying Big Antlered Success This Fall


It’s been quite the month of September for Team Tecomate, which is currently in the midst of a big antlered blitz across the Great Plains and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains as the crew films shows for a new season.

Earlier in the month, Team Tecomate – Jordan Shipley, David Morris and others – notched a few deer tags with their muzzleloading smokepoles.

Including one tag that was used on a world-class big buck bruiser, perhaps one of the best whitetails ever captured on film.

Tecomate Wildlife Systems, TWA’s Newest Corporate Partner

“TWA is proud to announce its newest corporate partner, Tecomate Wildlife Systems.  Based in San Antonio, Texas, and being the leader in food plot based nutritional management for white-tailed deer, current TWA members can receive 10% off select seed blend products,” said David Brimager, TWA Director of Marketing and Partner Relations.

How Tecomate began…A revolutionary new management strategy…What was started back in 1993 helped open an exciting new chapter in whitetail management history. Lead by Tecomate, food-plot-based nutritional management was introduced to an eager market and soon the whitetail management scene was literally revolutionized. Managers were introduced to an entirely new strategy that allowed them to take control of management on their property and greatly increase the size and number of their deer in ways never before possible.
Not even Texas was big enough to hold the good news of Tecomate’s paradigm-shifting management strategy. Managers all over were clamoring for information about what Tecomate was up to. So, the company took steps to take its message and products to the whole country. That process began when nationally renowned whitetail manager, hunter and author David Morris joined the Tecomate team as the company President.

Morris stated, “We are excited to join forces with TWA. Their commitment to Texas’ hunters in conserving our heritage and their continued wildlife conservation efforts, make TWA and their members valuable partners!”

Hunting’s End Zone Straight Ahead for ‘Bucks of Tecomate’ Co-Host Jordan Shipley

For casual observers, those in the Cotton Bowl and college football fans watching on television, things didn’t look good for Jordan Shipley and his University of Texas teammates on an October 2008 Saturday afternoon.

Undefeated and ranked fifth in the nation, Shipley’s Longhorns were already down by two scores to their arch rivals, the top ranked Oklahoma Sooners, in the annual Red River Rivalry grudge match in Dallas.

After surging ahead 14-3, the Sooners and head coach Bob Stoops prepared to kick off and bury Mack Brown and his Longhorns once and for all. With a record crowd of more than 92,000 looking on, Shipley made other plans as the pigskin suddenly appeared high up in the bright blue Texas sky.

In Pursuit Of Better Big Game Hunting Accuracy


The following piece is devoted to giving the reader an objective course of action for developing a more accurate load for their big game hunting rifle. This text will center on load development for the 7mm Remington Magnum as an example. Gunsmith and competitive shooter Creighton Audette pioneered this particular procedure many years ago. I like and have used this Audette technique often for load development as it saves on component materials and range time. This technique should be done during the summer months in the highest temperatures that you intend to use this ammunition in. Otherwise a safe working maximum load developed in December may generate excessive pressure when the temperatures are 60 degrees warmer in the summer months.

Claw Extractors 101


Among rifle nuts the debate over the claw extractor system verses the push feed design will often generate a heated conversation within minutes after the subject is mentioned. I have witnessed more than a few of these debates and I myself have even been ask to defend one or the other on a regular basis. If you talk with anyone interested in hunting on the African continent using any bolt-action rifle without a claw extractor is akin to filling out your own death certificate before you have ever stepped off the plane.

The New Mexico Affair


It was the day before the antelope hunt was to begin. The ranch on which this incident took place is one of the finest places to hunt for B&C caliber bucks in the United States that I know. With close to 100,000 acres, only eight hunters, and three days to make it happen, it’s a trophy antelope hunter’s Nirvana. The success or failure to take a buck on this property is based solely on the hunter’s ability to shoot precisely when the moment arrives. Like so many antelope hunts this one is conducted in wide-open short grass prairie. Even with undulating topography the cover is sparse and the term “doing the belly crawl” takes on an entirely new meaning. Most bucks on this property are taken between 250 and 350 yards. In some pastures there is just no way to get within in range without considerable effort and developing a taste for grass.
