Cover by Dr. Leonard Lee Rue III

The history of Whitetail Times that has followed our editorial policy has been unwavering. From the first issue we were committed to use only pictures of live whitetails on the cover. These cover photographs of whitetails captured in their natural environment have been breathtaking. Prominent wildlife photographers have provided us with whitetail photos that have stood head and shoulders with any and all national publications. Our staff photographer Dr. Leonard Lee Rue III had our 1st Anniversary Cover shot, and his professional camera skills are again being shown on our latest 30th Anniversary Cover. Lennie Rue's wildlife photos are truly world renowned. He has had over 1800 national covers to his credit and once had five in the same week. The work of all the photographers over the past 30 years has been the first thing you see when picking up a copy of Whitetail Times, which has been the conerstone of our handsome publication!
