Happy Friday! Last weekend at this time I was heading to Iowa for some shed hunting fun, but this Saturday and Sunday I’m back in Michigan and stuck with the foot or two of snow we still have stretched across most the land. None the less, big antlers are still on my mind and I’m patiently looking forward to the day I can finally walk here in Michigan and see green grass and brown leaves.

Hopefully you’ll be able to get in the woods this weekend to do some scouting or shed hunting, but if not – we’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find some of the best whitetail related blog posts from across the web. Enjoy and stay wired to hunt!
