Host Stan Potts needs no introduction. This Illinois native has hunted for over 40 years and has been the center of whitetail hunting productions for nearly as long. Stan has spent this time building a field knowledge of whitetail tactics that is second to few. His inventory of whitetail hunting adventures spans the country with numerous harvests, 4 of which are 200-class bucks

Born and raised in Missouri, host Laden Force is an accomplished big game hunter and has evolved his passion for whitetails into a career in the outdoor industry. As the Publisher of North American Whitetail Magazine, Laden brings not only proven field experience but years of relative industry knowledge to the team. His pursuit for whitetails and love for land management are a direct extension of the legacy that was ingrained in him by his family, just as he is now sharing that heritage with his three young boys.

Haynes joined North American Whitetail in 2015, quickly becoming a significant part of the future of this legacy brand’s delivery. Raised on his family’s farm in Davie Co., North Carolina, Haynes realized his passion for deer hunting and the outdoor lifestyle at an early age through the mentorship given by his father and grandfather. After earning his Bachelor’s in English and minoring in Visual Arts at Hampden-Sydney College, Haynes began his career as Associate Editor for NAW. Soon his role expanded to include the titles of Associate Producer for NAW TV and Editor of Hog Hunting. Only outranking his passion for traveling the continent in pursuit of whitetails is Haynes’ love of life’s two greatest gifts – Faith and family.
