Tecomate’s mission:  To inform, equip and assist sportsmen with dreams of owning and managing their own recreational property and a desire to be better stewards of the land and wildlife God entrusted to us.

The Tecomate Food Plot System has ushered in a new era in wildlife management; one in which landowners themselves greatly improve their wildlife populations and habitat while increasing their hunting success and outdoor enjoyment.
