    By John Luthens When the killing hand of winter lays its hand on the northern woods, there are those who fly south to warmer climates; snowbirds, I think they are called.  Call me crazy, but I’ll take the cold.  I’ll take the logging trails and the snow draped pines, and I’ll take the deer paths that lead into the slas...

This is why we must get out and seize the moment whenever possible. For some, it is cross country skiing. For the nostalgic, perhaps snowshoeing is a good option. Of course, ice fishing, hi...
