Things have been a little slow here at Wired To Hunt lately, I’ve noticed it too, and I do apologize! Admittedly, big mountains and trout have kept some content on hold. But new articles, podcasts and videos are on the way soon. And with the whitetail opener in some states just over a month away, I’m getting pretty excited about the stories we’ll be sharing.

That said, there are, of course, more responsible whitetail writers who have been posting while I’ve been off scouting for Montana whitetails and hauling in big cutthroats. So take a look at our round-up of the best of this past week’s whitetail blog posts across the web, and stay tuned for some cool stuff on W2H soon.
