It’s Wood Tick Season, How Will You Protect Your Dog?

I read on Facebook that a friend had been hiking in the woods for Mother's Day and found a wood tick crawling on his sock.  EWWWW!  With the anticipation of spring and summer comes the realization we need to protect our pets from fleas and ticks.  There are several different options, however I don't have a choice.  Due to two unfortunate incidents that occurred after my dog got shots at the vet, we HAVE to use the "juice on his back" method.

A few months ago I began shooting archery for the first time.  I went to Custom Archery and Outdoors and pretty much said, "I don't know anything, but I want to learn."  Within about 8 weeks, I was consistently hitting the bulls eye and doing well at techno hunt.

Can You Guess Where In the Northland Cathy Kates Is?

While my husband were out and about this weekend I was admiring the day and realized that I had been to this area before and never took in the beauty around me.  Living in the Northland we take for granted what some people travel miles and miles to see.  But, maybe you're just uber busy and can't get out as much as you'd like.  So, I thought I'd bring it to you and see if you can guess where I am!

Cross Country Ski for Free During the National Winter Trails Day Celebration, Register NOW

I have down hill skied and in recent years learned to snow shoe (yes, there's a learning curve to that), but I have never been on a pair of cross country skis.  When we down hill ski one of my favorite things to do is "skate ski" from the bottom of the hill to the chair lift, so I think I would enjoy learning how to cross country ski and be able to take in the solitude of swooshing through the woods!  What to learn for free with me?

Smoked Walleye Is Better Than You Would Think

I know what you're saying, "Why would I smoke Walleye?"  Smoking a walleye would be like putting ketchup on prime rib.  Smoking fish is for the kind of fish that doesn't already taste good.  But guess what, smoked walleye is pretty darn good.

Twin Ports River Monster Caught!

Earlier today I was talking with a couple of guys at work about how it would be funny if we did a Twin Ports river monster segment, where we'd try to catch some huge fish in the St. Louis River.  I never thought I'd actually hook one just a few hours later.   Here's what happened.

Off Backyard Pretreat Backyard Control Results Mixed

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about trying a new product made by OFF that claimed to keep the bugs out of your yard.  Initially I was very impressed, but said I would let you know how the results lasted over time.

OFF Backyard Pretreat Backyard Control Product Review

Last week the mosquitoes were so bad in our backyard that we were forced into the house.   We couldn't spend more than 30 seconds outdoors without at least 1 mosquito bite.  More than a few minutes outside, and we were doing a rendition of riverdance trying to swat the bugs.   I decided action needed to be taken, so I headed to the store and purchased OFF Backyard Control, not sure if it would help.  I figured at about $9 a bottle it was worth the risk.
