Our Gear

The Guides and Producers on the Novillos recommend and use the following gear while hunting in South Texas:

We recommend and believe in McWhorter Custom Rifles. For hunting the South Texas brush, we recommend one of their rifles in a 25 caliber rifle or up.
We currently have a McWhorter Rifle in the following calibers: 257 Weatherby, 6.5 Weatherby, 270 Weatherby, 7mm RemUM, 300 Weatherby, and 300 RemUM. Tim and Allan are great poeple and make a great product that is guaranteed accurate. All of their rifles shoot sub 1/2 inch groups and their workmanship is second to none. We are proud to have them as a major sponsor for Brush Country Monsters!

We use Berger Bullets in all of our rifles. Berger VLD Hunting Bullets are second to none and are in our opinions, the most lethal big game hunting bullet available. Shots on the Novillos range anywhere from 100 yards to 400 yards with the majority being in the 100 to 200 yard range. Bergers leave a devastating wound channel and deliver massive hydrostatic shock, which results in an instantanius kill. A one shot, drop-in-their-tracks, kill means everything in deep South Texas. The thick brush and sandy soil make for very tough tracking!

Range Finders
Here at BCM we have come to depend on G7 BR 2 Rangefinders for our ballistic solutions. The G7 BR2 Rangefinder is the only rangefinder that ranges and calculates your ballistic solution for any shooting condition. This rangefinder is in a class of its own.

Rifle Scopes, Binoculars and Spotting Scopes
The crew at BCM as well as the owners of McWhorter Rifles stand by the quality European binoculars and spotting scopes made by Swarovski Optik.

Rifle Barrels
On BCM, we use Hart Rifle Barrels on all of our McWhorter Rifles, which are are handcrafted one at a time, with a strong commitment to extreme rifle accuracy and quality.

Rifle Actions
We also use Borden Aactions made by Borden Accuracy on all of our McWhorter Custom Rifles. The Custom Actions manufactured by Borden Accuracy operate smoothly and perform exceptionally due to the integration of key bolt and action design concepts. The combined aspects of the design integration and the execution of quality control to maintain close machining tolerances results in actions that deliver improved performance.

Hearing Protection
We use 3M Peltor Tactical Sport Hearing Protectors in the field and on the range for protecting our hearing.

Scope Mounts
We use Talley Lightweight Alloy Scope Mounts on all of our rifles. The rigid design has no joint between the scope and the rifle, which ensures accuracy every time.

Whitetail Attractants
We use Big & J Long Range Attractant to grow and attract big bucks on the Novillos. This system is proven and we belive in it!
