Hey guys, welcome to the show. Today’s guest, Will Meyers, is a great guy to listen to if you’ve still got a late season deer tag in your pocket. Will’s got tons of awesome stories from plenty of different late season hunts. Its only been in recent years that he’s transitioned from early season archery tags to late season rifle tags, but he seemed to figure it out pretty quick. This episode got plenty of tips and secrets that I’m sure a lot of you can benefit from, I know I sure did. I’ve been looking into picking up a late season tag myself, which is part of the reason why I wanted to talk to Will. I hope you all enjoy this episode, and if you do, let us know! We’d love it if you left a review on iTunes. Thanks for listening.
