Happy Friday Nation! Given it’s Memorial Day weekend, I wanted to take a quick moment here to thank all of our veterans and current service men and women for their sacrifice for our country. If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t have the privilege to enjoy the great outdoors and those wily whitetails that we love so much.

That said, enjoy the great whitetail reads below, and then go have an excellent weekend!
