Update - 3/5/14..
Trailways remain in great
condition and should continue for at least another week. The winds have
finally subsided and the temps is slowly rising back from the bone chilling,
tree popping bitter temps. (bitter sweet trivia - temps at -25º
and lower help smoke the invasive insects such as the emerald ash borer
and gypsy moths). This weekend is expected to bring thawing temps
with a 30% chance of snow Friday and Friday night. Saturday and Sunday
should bring plenty of sunshine.
Call ahead to get your drives plowed before the
thawing temps kick in! Trails should be okay depending on the trail traffic.

Thunder Bay Resort
They keep a selection of Antler Velvet supplements derived from the
Red Deer raised in New Zealand..
Consider all the minerals and nutrients
the elk uses to get those antlers so flippin' huge and strong in a manner
of mere months. These minerals and nutrients help the body cope with arthritis,
sore joints and muscles, growth factors for bone and muscle health.
From those living with aches and pains to body builders and sports
junkies, it's in there!
Side effects of Elk Antler Velvet usually appear in Autumn which
may include growing antlers, an urge to bugle, scrape the ground and head
butt any thing or any body that comes near your harem. A slight inconvenience
but they do fall off in the spring.
