Winter is here, the 2014 deer hunting season is over, and I’m settling in to my annual winter hibernation. A nightly fire, a hot beverage, a few classic tunes on the radio and a good book. That will be the story of my life for quite a few weeks to come, if not months. But of course, there’s plenty of whitetail work to be done as well.
