Happy Friday ya’ll! I don’t know about you, but I am very ready for the weekend to be here. My week started off with an unsuccesful turkey hunt on the opening day of the season here in Michigan – but I’m hoping to redeem myself this weekend! And I hope that many of you will be hitting the woods as well, whether it be to chase turkeys, plant food plots or just enjoying the wild. If you’re stuck inside though, our Friday Morning Mashup features some great deer hunting related reading to keep you occupied. Read on for articles regarding food plot tips, archery practice and management on small pieces of ground.

Have a great weekend!
