Spring! Is the time of the year for new growth. Trees begin to turn green and the flowers begin to bloom. April 15th opens many ATV trails in the Mercer, Wisconsin area, weather permitting.

Fall! Is spectacular with the colors of the changing leaves. It's also the time of year when many hunting seasons begin, including the Ruffed Grouse, with which we are known as the "Ruffed Grouse Capital of the World." It's a perfect time of year to go hiking, biking and canoeing.
