Whitetail Deer Hunting photo

Consider this a formal invitation: Come to Lansing, Michigan next weekend to say hi and ask me any question you have.

You can ask about Outdoor Life’s history and evolution. You can ask about John Snow’s stinky feet. You can ask about my favorite deer rifle, or my go-to coyote call. Or you can ask me about how an inarticulate Midwestern kid got to be the editor of your favorite outdoors magazine.

But you have to ask your questions in person. I’ll be at the Michigan Deer & Turkey Expo on both Friday and Saturday, March 7 and 8. I’ll be hosting a seminar on Saturday afternoon entitled “Ask the Experts,” and it’s designed to be just that: ask me anything and I’ll try to pull out some expertise in my answers.

I’ll be coming to Lansing directly from the first-ever North American Whitetail Deer Summit, and I’ll present an overview of the tone and details of that important event.

I’ll also be hovering around the Outdoor Life Big-Game Trophy Contest and Display, trying to find contenders for OL’s big Deer of the Year program.

But come. You can find out more about the expo — and print out a coupon for $3 off admission — at www.deerinfo.com/michigan.

See you there.
