12/27/2011Can you imagine a more barren place to hunt whitetails than the plains of Eastern Colorado? I could not.

We all met at the Rapid City South Dakota airport as scheduled on November 30th. Our four day muzzleloader hunt would begin December 1st.

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...

This storybook hunt begins on a mystical foggy morning in the hardwood bottoms and pine hills of Central Mississippi. As nine-year-old Chase and I climbed into our box blind, or what we Mississippi folk call a shooting house, daylight had already started to fill in the Tecomate food plot we were hunting. Yet the visibility was limited to only a few yards because of the dense fog that filled the area. After only ten minutes of the daylight combating the...

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.

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...

After visiting Mount Rushmore, we continued our drive westward through the Black Hills, where I saw more deer, mostly...
