  1. Video is very helpful. However, will I still get a brochure in the mail or do I need to print it out here? I sometimes use my brochure during the hunting season and like a hard copy.

    1. You will still receive a printed copy. Please remember to check the online version of the brochure, because it will reflect any corrections that are made throughout the year.
