Only recently did my part of northern Minnesota become a turkey hotspot. Somehow we've been missing the cruel winters of our past. Rarely do we see two straight weeks of minus 40-degree temps and snow up to your waist on level land. This year winter was relatively mild until it was supposed to be spring. Minnesota DNR photo

I was digging out my fishing tackle box the other day inside our garage where the floor is still covered with ice and salt and grit and grime.

The sandhill cranes weren't here in 1978. I first heard their squawking calls from my deer stand many Novembers ago. It was with some interest that I first discovered their giant tracks in the soft mud near the creek that flows through our hunting land. PineandLakes.com Illustration

There are always new companies springing forth. Two new companies this year are called Territorial Seed Company and Johnny's Selected Seeds. I've never heard of either, usually ordering from our local garden greenhouse or from the old standards, Farmer's or Gurney's. I probably won't order from either of these new companies, but it's fun for me to wander my way through them and see what they've got to offer. Metro Creative Graphics, Inc.

The old gun is not beautiful by any standard and shows the wear and tear of years in one family. When I look at it, I can still feel, smell and picture that late afternoon fall day when I cradled it in my arms while walking slowly ahead of that rumbling corn picker, waiting to see a rabbit make its dash from beneath the grass.

With all the creature comforts afforded to our modern lifestyle, it is a bit refreshing to be slapped in the face by a windchill that will freeze an egg on the sidewalk in seconds. There was a time in the past when modern day comforts did not exist and everything in the house was either close to freezing or frozen. PinenadLakes.com Illustration

The little tree grew very special, somehow.

All her friends and relatives were bound to see,

Her very own "special" Christmas tree!

And none of the other trees could compare,

To the attention that ugly little tree did share.
