Only In The Northland is it 46 Degrees and You’re Mowing Your Lawn

Cleaning Up The Sailboat & Getting Her Back In The Water After 8 Years [VIDEO]

Quite a while ago, I parked my 1981 AMF Sunbird Sailboat at the cabin.  I couldn't store it indoors, so I did my best to tarp it.  I've been meaning to find time to get it in the water over the years, but this year I've made it a priority.  I was a little worried to see what kind of shape it would be in after unveiling the tarp.

Do Yaktrax Work For Guys With Big Feet?

I recently purchased a pair of Yaktrax this winter.  My hope was they would help with footing while ice fishing.  I took a couple of spills last year, and there is no fun hauling your gear off the lake with a sprained knee.   I was a bit worried though if they would actually work as advertised, and more importantly would they actually fit my large feet.

Gray Wolves Back On Endangered Species List, Despite Seemingly Larger Population

This has been a big debate and it gets people hot under the collar.  The gray wolf has been put back on the endangered species list in Great Lakes States after a federal judge ruled Friday that Minnesotans can't kill a wolf unless it threatens their lives directly.  This also means that farmers and ranchers worried about wolves preying on cattle can't kill the wolves themselves.
