Well it’s -16 degrees this morning here at the Wired To Hunt headquarters, and that’s the actual temperature – not the wind chill. You know what that means? It means it’s a perfect day to not go outside, and instead to build a fire and do some reading. If that’s your plan, we’re here to help with some recommended reading from across the inter-webs. Below we’ve compiled some of the best hunting and whitetail related blog posts from this past week.
