If you've got a quad and haven't yet purchased a plough for it......do it now! I waited and shovelled, and worked my ass off for two years first, then I bought a Click and Go 2. This is the best damned purchase I've ever made. I can now do my driveway which is fairly large due to parking for four cars, a bus etc. in a very short time and without killing myself. This plough may cost a little more but is front mounted, hooks up to your winch and is easy to take on and off. The feature I like the most is the ability to lift the blade 16 inches off the ground, this allows me to push snow up into high piles. Ive got mine mounted on a Suzuki 450 AXI and have had no problems pushing snow up to the top of the blade. The other nice feature is you can angle the blade to the left or right.
A Leatherman Multi tool must have for any outdoors person, male or female. I've carried one on my belt for over 20 years. It goes with me everywhere, and has saved me while on the job as a Forestry Technician in Northern BC, removed numerous fish hooks from fish, gutted deer, moose, ducks, fish, cut wire, worked on motors, removed screws, tightened screws. It truly is a remarkable tool. When I'm at work ,o r out fishing other people come to me to borrow it constantly. My only question is , "Why doesn't everyone carry one?" Pick one up at your local sporting goods store; you'll be glad you did, oh and they are guaranteed for life!
Bass fishing is one of those things that can be a non stop catch and release experience or one of those days when you cant seem to buy a fish. Here are some suggestions to help you increase your odds of catching fish. Calm water back bays are always a good bet, around docks, overhanging trees stumps or structure along shore, around islands or rock structure. Another thing is time of day, Bass like early evening right up to and past dark, this is when they come into shore from the deeper water and weed beds to feed along shore. As for tackle, I love top water, but sometimes they won't go for topwater, so switch to a texas rigged 5" black plastic workm and work along the shore, no weight, just let the worm sink to the bottom and work towards the boat...this is a deadly technique, and works really well to get those larger bass in your boat. Good luck!
Turkey season is around the corner, well its definitely coming. What are your go to ammunition/choke tube suggestions. I for one love the Winchester Long Beard XR loads. You don't have to use a turkey choke with these shells, however you still can. These shells deliver twice the number of pellets in a 12 inch circle up to 60 yards. Check out Winchester Long Beard XR shells the next time you go to buy some ammunition; you won't be disappointed.

I've owned a Princecraft boat for over 20 years, and have had a lifetime of memories in that boat. It is only a 14ft and I bought it used in British Columbia. I've been in the Pacific Ocean with it and fished so many lakes in both BC and Ontario I can't even remember all their names. What I love about Princecraft boats is the quality of the boats, their quick ability to get up on plane and their retention of value. Its come time to possibly upgrade to a larger boat with a few more features and a better level of comfort, as well as being able to take more people and fish and explore this wonderful Provinces waterways. I'm looking at possibly the Amarok pictured below but haven't committed to this boat. I'm thinking a new Princecraft is coming to a lake near me....lol

If you're looking for a good little knife for either hunting or fishing this is one well constructed knife, and holds a very sharp edge. It is available in both a fixed blade and a folder. I use mine constantly for everything.
The leupold VX-R 1.25 -4.0 fibre optic red dot scope, with adjustable intensity is one awesome little scope. Most hunters go with a 3-9 scope, but what they forget to consider is when hunting deer, bear or moose in Ontario a lot of your shots are under 100 yards. With the lower number and the fibre optic redicle it allows for quick target acquisition and no need to find your cross hairs in low light situations. Just put the dot on the animal and pull the trigger. With the zoom to 4.0 this allows easy target acquisition up to at least 200 yards; what more do you need? This is one awesome scope, with excellent eye relief, clarity is amazing, and guaranteed for life. Check it out at your local Sail Store in Ontario, they retail for around $859.00
The Tikka T3 Battue is an excellent gun for hunting in Ontario. This gun is made for quick target aquisition and is short, light and an awesome go to choice; especially if you want a gun with open sights. It sports a long rear sight with fibre optic sights on either side of the rear sight, and a fibre optic hooded front sight. The gun is available in either a wood or synthetic stock, and my personal choice would be .308 I would have no problems carrying this and confidently making shots up to 150 yards, which covers off most of the situations you will come across in Ontario. They retail for about $859.00 and can be purchased at Sail stores in Ontario.
