11 December

Rack ’em & Stack ’em

29 July

…on the wall! If you haven’t got your licks out yet for the upcoming season, you’re running behind.  Proper licks do a lot more than just draw deer into your area during the hunting season.  Good licks contain vitamins and minerals essential to wildlife’s growth and need to be out all year and especially in spring and summer.
