My hunting season is through and now “show season” kicks off! This week I headed down to Louisville for the ATA show, and I’ll be packing up again next week for Las Vegas and the SHOT show. Hopefully all this travel will pay off, with some first peaks at some of the best new gear for 2013. I’ll be sure to keep you posted along the way.

But until then, the best I’ve got are a few whitetail related blog posts from across the web, that are well worth your time. Check these out, and have a great weekend!
