Need a Guide for Colorado Hunting Trips?

I shot a big horn sheep in Colorado with the help of some colorado hunting guides.  We decided to cook the sheep and make a stew as a full dinner course.  The meal turned out perfectly and with the help of our guide everything on the hunt went smooth as well.  Our eatery was glad that we contacted a guide instead of trying to plan the hunting trip ourselves.  We found our guide through a company that was advertising for hunting guides and hunting cooking.  Please visit our reference on deer hunting for more information.

On the trip to Colorado, we decided to enlisted the help of a Colorado Outfitter.  He was very knowledgable and helped us with equiping ourselves for the hunting expedition.  On the expedition while deer hunting in Colorado we came across several big horn sheep.  We also thought while in Colorado elk hunting that we could take in some scenery.  WOW we're we glad we did that, the mountains where absolutely beautiful.  All in all we had a great time in Colorado and we expect to go back soon.

Our next expedition is going to be a hunting trips to Alaska.  We are unsure what to hunt for though.  Our friends said Dall sheep hunting is very exciting and we have thought about that.  Alaska bear hunting is the ultimate hunting trip, and I think my husband would find that to be some what of a challenge.  Bear hunting can also be dangerous, so we may re-think that as an option for our Alaskan hunt.  Also bear meat can be a bit gamey and not fit into our cuisine.  So the next two big game animals are Alaska caribou hunting and Alaskan moose.  The moose is a really big and territorial animal so hunting can be dangerous as well, so moose hunting in Alaska is probably out of the picture.  We will probably to to caribou hunting, that way we both can enjoy the hunt.  Until next time....happy hunting.


Why Choose Carpet over Hardwood Flooring?

Carpet has been the most sought after flooring for the last decades because it has proven to have high quality, feels soft, and help insulate rooms to keep the noise to a minimum. There are many reasons to choose carpet. In a market that is rapidly moving into hardwood there is still a huge advantage to purchasing carpet. Besides being a softer material, a new study shows carpet may actually help people suffering from allergies. Carpet can also be used to accent any area with new designs and colors. New practices in recycling also make carpet more eco-friendly.

                The number one misconception about carpet is that is damaging to allergy and asthma suffers. In reality new studies show that carpet could be safer for these sufferers. Because carpet traps these allergens in the air it keeps them from circulating in the vicinity and away from these sufferers. So, if you’ve always enjoyed the feel of carpet, but felt it would aid in damaging your allergies, you can now rest easily and purchase your new carpet.

                Another reason to choose carpet is the wide variety of colors and designs carpet now offers. If you’ve ever had the feeling that carpet is boring and out of style, you should try again. New carpets designs comes in array of colors from zebra, chocolate, shaggy, hot pink, and various other colors. There is always many different designs from cut pile (plush), loop cut, and many different kinds of patterns. Some consumers put carpet in just one room to tie all the colors together in a certain area. As well as using carpet for decorative reasons it is also very gentle on children wanting to play on their hands and knees.

                Although hardwood has become the new favorite floor covering in recent years, carpet definitely shouldn’t be forgotten. Carpet is softer, and can brighten up any room with its many unique designs and colors. New advances have kept carpet at the top of eco-conscious consumers list. So, if you are in the market for new floor covering you should give carpet a chance and feel the difference.


Beyond Basic, Beyond Beautiful, Cork Floors  

 

Cork has been in use for thousands of years.  The Romans used cork in their roofs, in ship building, and as shoe soles.   Meanwhile, in ancient Greece, cork trees were thought to be symbols of honor, and only the priests were allowed to cut them down. 

Today, cork is harvested throughout the Mediterranean.  Cork is harvested in a very eco-friendly manner.  The bark of the Cork Oak tree is harvested by hand, leaving the tree unharmed.  After some time, the tree re-grows its bark, being harvested again and again.  These amazing trees have a life span of about 200 years.

 

Cork flooring is made by grinding the harvested, cleaned, and boiled cork, and mixing it with resin.  It is then put on sheets and baked in a kiln.  The heat from the kiln, combined with the natural sugars in the cork, give the flooring its soothing, natural caramel and honey tones.  Bolder colors can also be created by adding dyes to the cork mixture, or adjusting heat times in the baking process.  Not only does cork come in a variety of colors, you can get it in a variety of patterns or designs also.  Cork flooring usually comes in rolls, tiles, or planks.

 

Due to its cellular makeup, cork floors are energy efficient.  They offer great insulation in cold and warm weather climates.  Cork is also a great acoustic insulator, providing quiet throughout your home or office.  Many schools, hospitals, libraries, and other public places enjoy the benefits of a cork floor.  In fact, cork floors were installed in public places throughout the U.S. during the early 1900’s.  Many of these floors are still in use today, proving the durability and resilience of a cork floor.
