It’s February, the month of love! The time of year when the smell of chocolate, roses, and skunk is in the air. Yes you heard it right, skunk. February marks the beginning of breeding season for skunks, so don’t be surprised if you start to see them out roaming or smell their pungent odor. They are simply looking for a mate.

Enjoy the Outdoors Safely

A hat on your head and a scarf on your throat go good with a coat!

hypothermia 150x115

Hypothermia is the result of your body losing more heat than it can produce, and it isn’t always a result of exposure to extreme arctic temperatures. Getting wet during a duck hunt, or sweating while taking a winter hike can increase the amount of heat your body loses. If you plan on enjoying the outdoors in colder months, it is important to dress properly for the conditions, know the signs of hypothermia, and if you are going to be alone let someone else know where you will be and when you should return.
