Citronella candles may smell like summer, but they don't seem to do much...

I've only used lavender essential oil mixed with coconut oil at my cottage on both my kids and myself. Lavender is 10x more effective than anything. And it's safe to use on newborns when diluted properly with coconut oil.

I have used an insect repellent with Picaridin in it and have had great success. even those dreaded horse flies that bug me while I fish have not bothered me. Found it online through bass pro. they didn't sell it in canada at their stores

Anyone who has sat beside one out side could tell you that....they are pointless. If anything its the smoke that deters the bugs, not the cirtronella.

Mixed feelings. Expensive rescue resources spent to rescue a deer. Huge populations of deer to the extent of "nuisance" tags being issued to "cull". Anyone know what "natural selection" is?

I've lived up North most my life and never heard of this happening. Why are there so many stories lately of moose and deer being frozen stuck in ponds and lakes? Wierd!

Thank you for helping and saving the calf. You are both good men.

Nice article, can relate to that. We had a small 2 bedroom camp east of Carthage, Ny. Used lake water for showers and things and went to a spring to fill water jugs. Classic screened in porch with Adirondack chairs, lots of bass, pike, walleye, trout, lot's of fun and great memories..
03/21/2017 at 18:45
Don't forget to hook up the hot water tank pipes before you start up the water pump in the spring! 🙄

After the "Oh cool!" reaction, my first thought is always concern when a wild animal is not exhibiting normal behaviour. Be careful.

of course the Lynx is not worried, he would skewer the skier an then some, i would of kept more distance from them as they are very dangerous !!!

So......when we are without hydro for hours due to a problem from hydro's end say a transformer went, something like that...or they just don't know what happen lol Shouldn't we be rebated for that? But it's ok to charge the guy with the cottage that had no axcess to power due to the lines being down....just sayin
03/20/2017 at 10:02
I would never ever rely soley on hydro. We have had our share of long power outages in the winter. Propane, wood and generators, cheaper and you are in control.

I like going up to the cottage by myself. It doesn't bother me. I went camping last year solo and it was one of my best trips.!
03/19/2017 at 18:47
I live in Ontario and own a cottage.... I love to just pack up a few things, my dog, some food , a good book or two and a bottle of great wine and head to the cottage to just relax... no matter what time of year. I especially love it there in the winter when it is so quiet and serene... It is great place to unwind when life gets a little busy. My hubby and I and our dog enjoy walking around the lake and take in all the scenery.... so beautiful ..
03/19/2017 at 16:23
I do it all the time! If somebody comes for a visit great but alone time is good too!

New restrictions announced for recreational drone users in Canada

I have several drone flights over properties I manage several times per year. The operator files a flight plan with Nav Canada, as well as date and time. They also carry $ 1 million in liability insurance.
The fact that people buy cheap drones, and then overfly private property, or areas without asking permission is the main reason for these changes.
03/20/2017 at 06:10
This is in some way all Trumps fault, his paranoia of EVERY ONE spying on him has got our politicians all worried. ...KILL THE SPY DRONES!!!!.......LOL!!!
03/19/2017 at 17:07
It's about time. I had one fly over me in a parking lot at Walmart. It hit the wall right above the exit door. So lucky no one was hit by it. The person who was flying it laughed. I told him it is not funny.

What do you call this kind of boat? A tinnie, runabout, outboard, or something else entirely?

We have that exact boat and call it the "Wee Sue". All of the children in our family learned to row in it and then to drive a motor boat using it with a 3, then a 5 and finally a 6. Great memories!

We usually reference the length "Let's use the 14 footer." or the motor "We used the 9.9.".

also, outside keep a hose that can reach over 100 feet, your neighbour might need help if they have a fire.... and if u can find them, water fire pumpers.. they can shoot a stream of water 20 feet, all u do is pump the handle and aim the hose... might just help until the fire dept gets there...
