This morning I’m hitting the road for an epic 20 hour drive across the country to the great state of Wyoming! Over the next 10 days I’ll be soaking up the alpine grandeur of the Wind River Mountain Range, as I camp, hike and backpack my way across the wild. But in the mean time, Wired To Hunt won’t be lacking. Thanks to technology these days, I’ve got posts slotted to go live throughout the week while I’m off climbing mountains and evading grizzlies! So be sure to check back in, and since you’re here now – check out the great whitetail blog posts below!
