Tony LaPratt - Ultimate Land Management and Whitetail hunting guru says "Hunters always want to know what I can teach them that they haven’t already read or heard about.  The information I will show you and explain in great detail is my exclusive discoveries and techniques.  The information didn’t come out of a book, and I didn’t steal it from someone else." Make sure you take time to see Tony's session.
