It's been a terrific first two days hunting in Eastern Montana with Bill Perkins of Perkins Outfitting out of Miles City Montana. And the bucks here are off and running. Dr. Ed Nighbert and I are sharing camp for four days. Right now it's Ed's turn. We are hoping that Ed bags his big Montana buck sometime during the next 48 hours.Yesterday I took a great old Montana river bottom 10-point that was likely 7 years old plus. My buck...

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. 12-15, 2011, Oshkosh, NE: The Bucks of Tecomate TV Hunt on Nebraska’s North Platt RiverI have heard about the giant bucks of Nebraska’s North Platte River for years.

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...

Last week I was hunting mule deer on a 15,000-acre ranch northwest of Medicine Bow, WY, with my good friend Jadee Kroeger of Kroeger Country Outfitters out of Casper, WY. I shot a 190-class mule deer with 6 and 7-inch brow tines. Thoseare the longest brow tines of any mule deer I’ve ever killed. My .270 WSM Sako A7 Tecomate proved to be accurate at 300 yards.After that, we had an antelope tag, but did not have a ranch to...

And that’s right where we found him. Moffat spotted the ram first in the thicket just beyond the berry tree’s far reaching branches. A duiker moved into the clear first and...

Today we ran into scores of buffalo that appeared to be anesthetized, seemingly unaffected by our presence, as we traveled the dusty two tracks of Sentinel.

He was feeding away from us. Too thick...
