Dr. Ed Nighbert took a great old 10 point that was in hot pursuit of a doe late on Saturday afternoon in Eastern Montana.

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...

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...

Mississippi bucks are starting to feel their oats a little. I saw several rubs and a few scrapes this weekend. However, with the rut over a month away, most bucks are focusing primarily in packing on the weight. With the majority of the row crops being harvested, most of the mature bucks are feeding on an average acorn crop and any nearby food plots at night. I noticed lots of big tracks and rubs in and around my Tecomate food...

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.If you don’t have them...
