The 2012 ATA show is now in the history books, but show season is really just kicking off. I’ll be continuing our coverage at the SHOT show next week in Las Vegas and then we’ll be hitting a few more deer expos throughout the winter, so look for some great info on new products this winter! In regards to my ATA show content, look for new product videos and other interviews getting posted this weekend or early next week!

That being said though, there are still some folks hunting and if you are, I wish you the best of luck out there! In this weeks Friday Morning Mashup we’ve got big bucks, a few updates from the ATA and a couple more interesting articles related to deer hunting in general. Really  a little bit for everyone, no matter if you’re still hunting or are already planning for 2012. So read on and enjoy!
