Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

In addition to the celebration of green beer and leprechauns, this weekend is also #Shedrally 2017 and I’m looking forward to getting down to our Ohio lease. I’ve been skunked so far this year so I’m really hoping to scoop up a shed or two. If you can get out and shed hunt this weekend, make sure to join the fun and tag your pictures with #shedrally on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Until then, enjoy this week’s rundown of some of the best hunting related articles from around the web.
