Out for much of the remainder of the season!

We are heading out to the hills until Feb 12th. After that trip wraps up we’ll try to process as many orders and emails as possible, but then will be out again Feb 20th – Mar 6th, then Mar 8th – 11th, then we’re running a program at our home base Mar 12 – 19th. So we’re pretty much incommunicado until the snow starts to melt.

You can track the fun at: facebook.com/lureofthenorth

We want to thank everyone for their interest and support this season, and wish you a wonderful snow walking season!

Vast Horizons

LOTN Vast Horizons04

What a neat experience leaving right from our home at the Pond and entered into our Vast Horizons expedition. It was 3 days of beauty. Gorgeous giant hemlocks, beech and pines along with evidence of bears, squirrels, deer and wolves. We saw a Bald Eagle soar over us after a really tough portage that lifted our spirits!

Expedition Season is Underway!

LOTN Training Camp 25

We are officially in expedition mode! We’ve returned from our first ever, Lure Training Camp and finished it off with a 3-day tour of the surrounding area into the La Cloche Mountains. To see the photo album from our training camp click here.

For those of you last minute gear seekers, you may have to wait. We are back and forth from our expeditions and may be able to sneak out to the post, but don’t hold your breath. If you aren’t in a rush, please do make your order and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We have turn around time in between the expeditions so we may be able to accommodate.

Thank you again for your support and patience. We hope you enjoy following us on our expeditions this season and we hope you can get out yourself and enjoy the great white season!

Gone for the holidays!

Hey folks,

We are visiting family from the 22nd- 28th and will not be able to get any new orders out for you. If you have already made your order there is a really good chance that while we are drinking eggnog we will be sewing away on it! So if there is a mistake or two we will blame it on the lack of lighting and such..

We are returning to the Pond on the 28th so if you don’t hear from us until then please enjoy your holidays safely with love and laughter.  Thank you again for all of your support and we wish you well.

Happy Winter Solstice!

We’re Working Hard For You!

Update December 1st: Hey folks! We are working away using fingers and toes to get your orders out to you as fast as we can. Our final workshop of the season wraps up Dec 7th, after that we’ll be working full time on filling website orders.   Our final mail run before Christmas will occur on or around Dec 19th, so please aim to have your Christmas orders in no later than Dec 16th.  

If you have any concerns about shipping times or possible production delays, please don’t hesitate to call or write.  Some of our products are a bit back-ordered, but many others are still going out within a day or two.  laying down

A special note: The longest list we have right now is for winter moccasins. So if you really want some, know that it is our bottle neck right now so they might not make it to you in time for Christmas. Unless of course you want to make them yourself! Our DIY Kits for all of our products are still flying off the shelves and into the post so we can get them to you into our next mail run.

Thank you all so much for your continued support!! – Kie and Dave
