Midwest Whitetail

Midwest Whitetail

Midwest Whitetail is first and foremost an on-line hunting show that we produce as close to live as possible. You can only watch Midwest Whitetail and the daily video blogs on the internet and on connected televisions. You can watch the shows right after the hunts occur. This format permits us to talk about timely issues such as changing weather patterns, current deer behavior, strategies to employ in the near future, etc. We try to take advantage of this format to help you stay one step ahead of the deer you are hunting and to introduce new products.
