  • 5 Reasons Why You Need to Ride Michigan Snowmobile Trails, Dec 18, 2014

    Don't hesitate. Make plans to get out on Michigan's snowmobile trails today!

    I feel bad for folks who have never had the opportunity to throw a leg over a snowmobile and go for a ride across the frozen white stuff.

    If you’re reading this, you’re likely a hunter, or at least married to or dating one. There are some ways to know for sure, and I've compiled the following list of seven surefire indicators. 1. They own "casual" camo clothes I once bought a pair of camo slip-on shoes. I had to promise my wife that I was only buying them to wear around the house and I wouldn’t go out in public wearing them. That was a lie, of course. Camo is more than just hunting clothing. It’s a lifestyle. I have a lot of camo stuff that I wear on a regular basis that isn’t hunting gear. My wife has finally seen...
