Adventures with Dan: West Outlet Bald Eagle

This week Dan delivered for his customers a sighting of the Bald Eagle - the symbolic token for American freedom. So it seemed quite fitting to post about Dan's sighting this week, as here we are leading to July 4th - Independence Day. Amid the fireworks and family gatherings this weekend, let this be a reminder to honor our great nation.

Father & Son Fishing

After a successful moose sighting on our Moose Safari, one father treated his sons, ages 8 & 6, to a morning of fishing. They loaded up on gear at our store and headed out for some quality father and son time on the water. Upon their return they reported that they caught (and released) 52 fish! Among their catch was white perch, yellow perch, and several Smallmouth bass. Create your family memories: call today to book your Family Fishing Trip with Northwoods Outfitters.

Adventures with Dan: Canoe & Kayak River Trip

While on a van drive to the West Outlet to go kayaking this week, the Giannakouros family spotted a Pileated Woodpecker! Woodpeckers can be identified by the rhythmic drumming of their bill. They live in wooded areas and tap on tree trunks to find insects, which in turn, they eat. Some species of woodpecker drum to communicate with other woodpeckers during courtship. It is estimated that a woodpecker can tap up to 12,000 times per day!
