“The Future of Hunting Depends on Us!”

Kids today, have many more opportunities and plenty activities to take up their time. If we don’t spend time teaching kids and introducing them to the outdoors — who will?

Nature finds me every year — when the water drips from my roof, the brown breast of a Robin magically appears outside my window and my curiosity turns to homemade Maple Syrup and scouring the WEB for Maple Syrup Tours and where to buy tapping equipment.

March is the time when words like, “sugar bush, spile and sugar maple begin to flow through the minds of experienced and want-to-be tappers. This weekend I visited the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum for their Annual Pancake Brunch & Maple Syrup Tour. It was a beautiful day, with many adventurers and families looking to explore and enjoy the taste of real maple syrup — poured over stacks of hot pancakes.

For me — the beginning of each season is like the opening preview to a great movie and waiting is summers performance. Until then, I will smack my lips, and watch, as I savor syrup made from my own maple trees.

Note: If you’ve never seen maple trees tapped or how sap is drawn and boiled to make syrup, I suggest you visit one of the many Twin Cities Maple Syrup Events held this time of year.
