In South Texas last week I observed only limited rut activity. Small bucks were occasionally observed sparring. Only a few mature bucks were seen pursuing does during six full days hunting. I've heard reports all over the brush country from several quality deer range managers that during this season there has been a noticeable lack of intense rut action. In three hunting trips to the brush country and after hunting on five superb ranches I concur. Peak rut is behind...

Dec. 1-4, 2011, Sandhills of Nebraska: The Bucks of Tecomate TV HuntA stranger place to hunt whitetails I’ve never seen. But they are there … in a place with virtually NO trees, only grass. And, right alongside them you can find their kin, the mule deer. As a hunter, one of the best things about the Nebraska Sandhills is that I can shoot either … indeed, BOTH, if I buy a second license!This is my second trip to hunt with outfitter Lynden...

Nov. 17-20, 2011, Miles City, MT: The Bucks of Tecomate TV Hunt on Montana’s Powder RiverOver the years, I’ve come to have a few favorite places to hunt whitetails. They are not all based on deer size, though some like South Texas and Eastern Colorado do produce giants. Others have good deer, but even more importantly, they are delightful places to hunt and places where old friendships are fostered. One such place is a wild and beautiful chunk of country...
