7-day forecast from NOAA out of Gaylord
 

The critters and deer are still dining on the grass growth along the roadways that brings them out like ants to a picnic basket..
Keep the eye's peeled on the roadways especially at dusk through the dawn hours.

SLOW DOWN - There are plenty of new babies that don't move as cautious as their parents. Give 'em a chance at their new life.

Flying insects including bee's and flutterbye's are in low or non-existant with surprise mosquito visits just to let ya know your not sleeping.

Ticks have made a new home in this neck of the woods and are abundant in various wooded or high grass area's. They are out in force along with the mosquito's.
Do the tick check whenever you come in from the woods or even just putzing around in the yard.
Freddies Family Market, the Atlanta Vet and the Atlanta Hardware have Tick Juice and Tick keys pullers to help thwart the invaders.

Ticks are relatively new to this neck of the woods (about 7 years now) but it's looking like we may as well get used to it. Adapt to the new norm and don't take the voluntary ignorance approach while enjoying the great north woods.

 also in Hillman is the 
Thunder Bay Resort
989-742-4502
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.

Listen to an Elk Bugle -
If you hear this in the woods and it is sure to send chills down the spine.
