This past weekend it was spraying food plots, hanging no trespassing signs and checking cameras. This weekend it’s brush hogging and hanging more cameras. The work never ends, but I guess that’s part of what I love about it so much. Hunting whitetails is a 365 day a year job, no doubt about it.

That said, if you’ve got some spare time this weekend, of course after you finish your hunting chores, check out some of these great whitetail reads from across the web. Enjoy, have a great weekend, and stay wired to hunt!
