Well, I Don’t Want Pants To Fall Down

“The first pair sent to me by a viewer from Montana… full camo!” I recall a few times while doing meet and greets down in the United States when people would tell me that I remind them of Red Green. I guess… well, maybe a little bit. We’re both from Canada, we’re both half nuts and we both wear suspenders. I still find it somewhat amusing when people ask me why I wear suspenders. And, I do, pretty much all [Read More]

You Get Your Water From Where?

“Clean water – for free.” I’m pretty lucky. I found a great piece of property that I really like. It’s private, 2.3 kms from the road and I could actually afford it. But, the coolest part – it has a river running through it. It has a good flow, it’s clear and there is plenty of it. About three feet is the average depth. It also has brook trout swimming in it… so some of my meals come from that [Read More]

The Trip of a Lifetime (Or, will it be a trip to hell and back?)

Written by the Rugged Dude

The Trip of a Lifetime (Or, will it be a trip to hell and back?)

Written over five years by the Rugged Dude, this 217 page book tells it like it really is. After having been on more 200 fishing or hunting trips all across Canada, RD knows what can go right on a “Trip of a Lifetime,” and what can go horribly wrong on a “trip to hell and back.” Whether you’re a first timer or a seasoned veteran of Canadian fishing or hunting trips, this book could save you incredible hassle, stress and even a financial nightmare.

Big Lake – Big Lake Trout

Okay, this might be kind of a weird way to start off a story about a fishing trip, but, I’m doing it anyway. It’s about these, um, these… sausages.  That’s right, I said sausages!  The most amazing, mouth-watering, involuntary drool causing sausages known to man.  And, the only place I’ve ever seen them, is at Rusty’s Lodge in Northern Saskatchewan. Never in my life have I ever tasted sausages soooooooo good! I found out they were made locally by an [Read More]

Lucky?

“RD with his “lucky” buck.” Sitting fifteen feet above the frozen ground with a stiff, November breeze smacking you in the face can make a guy appreciate things like hot coffee, long underwear and woodstoves.  It can also make a guy appreciate whitetail deer hunting. As I very slowly moved my head from side to side I noticed a quick movement to my far right.  My heart rate accelerated and I suddenly forgot how cold I was.  But, within two [Read More]

Rugged Dude Pizza

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t LOVE pizza… but, many people (me included) are tired of all the national pizza chains.  After a while, they all seem to be the same. I really love the homemade “ma & pa” places that make pizza the way it should be, the old way; rustic and delicious.  Sadly, the private, family run pizza shops are dying off for one reason or another.  This is such a shame. Where I live, there are no [Read More]
