Cold Weather Hunting in Alaska and Colorado


If you've ever wondered how hunting is done in the dead of winter in artic conditions then you need to be sure you have the right hunting equipment and supplies.  Most Alaska bear hunting trips can be done with minimum equipment and very little else, while dall sheep hunting can be very exhausting since you have to hike around to find the sheep on the cliffs of mountains.  So it is important to wear good hiking shoes and drink plenty of fluids to keep you hydrated.  So you can see how important it is to obtain good hunting supplies and equipment.


Once you're in Alaska, be sure to check out the outlying cities of Anchourage.  That is where you find the best Alaska moose hunting guides.  These guides can take you anywhere you want to be because they know the terrain and the lay of the land.  Don't be fooled by cheap Colorado outfitters that say they know the Alaskan terrain.  Only people that live in Alaska actually know the best spots and times of year to hunt.  When the Caribou have their yearly run only a native inuit would know that and give you the best Alaska caribou hunting experience.


Colorado hunting guides usually know the Rocky Mountains the best and should definitely be used when deer hunting in Colorado.  The Colorado rocky mountains can be tricky to navigate and find wild game so finding an outfitter you can trust is crucial to having a successful hunt.  My favorite deer hunting trips are ones from my past...when I was a boy.  I remember once while in Colorado elk hunting we came across a huge field that looked like it was covered with snow.  The field was in fact an old testing site for the US air force.  The game was plentiful and we had a successful hunt.  Our next big hunting trip is deer hunting in Iowa.

Cork, the Eco-friendly Flooring  


     Cork is a renewable product, biodegradable and recyclable.  These properties make cork flooring extremely environmentally friendly.  Cork comes from the bark of the Cork Oak Evergreen tree, which grows throughout the Mediterranean region. Cork trees do not have to be cut to harvest the bark.  The bark is simply stripped of the tree, leaving the tree unharmed. Over time, the tree re-grows its bark.  The Cork Oak tree lives to be about two-hundred years old, and its bark is harvested an average of sixteen times over the life of the tree.

     With its natural caramel and honey tones, a cork floor adds beauty and warmth to any space.  Highly resistant to abrasion, cork flooring is a great choice for commercial use, or use in the home.  It can be installed in just about any room, including the bathroom.  Cork floors can be found in public places, such as hotels, hospitals, libraries and schools.  In the U.S., cork floors were installed in some public places during the early 1900’s.  These floors are still in use today.  This can attest to the resilience of a cork floor.

     With its cellular makeup and tough, yet flexible cell walls, cork is naturally water proof and airtight.  These qualities allow cork flooring to be rot and water resistant.  Cork flooring is also very energy efficient, with great insulating qualities.  Not only will it provide comfort to the climate of your home, it has great sound insulation too.  Although cork can take a great amount of wear and tear, it is very comfortable to the legs and feet.

     Cork flooring comes in rolls, tiles, and even planks.  It is generally what is called a floating floor, so it can be installed over existing floors.  It is light weight, yet compact, recovering quickly from compression.  It is very easy to install.  Cork flooring is available in many different designs and colors.  Perhaps you’re looking for something bolder than the honey or caramel tones; then a dyed cork floor may be what you’re looking for.  No matter the room, no matter the space, cork flooring is a great addition to your home or business.
