Hunters DO save lives!

Koodos to Greg Zubiak!!  
This hunter called off his moose hunt to rescue 20 abandoned puppies!!!  
And, he literally took the clothes off of his back to do so!  

 

 This is one of 3 photos of the 20 puppies on the Battlefords Humane Society's Facebook page (Facebook)

"I just took off what I was wearing when I was hunting, like all my hunting stuff, and made them kind of a little place in the front of the box of the truck. They're too small to jump out so I made a little bed for them," he said.

Thanks so much to Greg Zubiak!!!  These puppies are safe, warm and getting the care the deserve.  

You can help too!  Please contact the Battlesford Humane Society to find out how you can help and/or support your local Humane Society

Hunting Myths & Facts: Have your say!

The Autumn leaves are falling and there is a brisk chill in the air -
IT'S HUNTING SEASON!
  

Hunting prevents the overpopulation of animals
Hunters claim that they help control animal population, many opposed believe that hunters only hunt the biggest and the best seeking an enormous rack for the “mantle trophy” leaving the weakest of the herd. 
What do you think?

Hunters leave wounded animals suffering
A well placed shot in the heart or lung will drop a deer in it’s tracks, or shortly thereafter.  Many say that hunters often miss the shot and the animal is left to suffer, contracting infections leading to a very painful death.  Aren’t there laws about this?  Are hunters actually permitted to just leave the animal in the bush?

We've Got You Covered...Literally!

Most Canadians can expect yet another harsh winter…

The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that Ontario and the Prairies will experience below-average temperatures this winter, while snowfall in the Prairie provinces, as well as southern Quebec and the Ottawa area, "will be much greater than normal," Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer's Almanac, said in a release about the Canadian forecast.

BRING ON THE HEAT!

  • May be used as an outer glove or glove liner
  • Micro-thin stretchable carbon fibers
  • No external wires
  • 3 temperature levels
  • No interfering cable
  • Warms hands for up to 5 hours
  • Batteries can be recharged up to 500 times
  • Includes rechargeable Li-ion Polymer batteries - replacement batteries available

This winter, you should do your hands a favour. Even on the coldest winter days, keep your hands warm with theThermo Gloves, the first wireless and rechargeable heated gloves worldwide, that even fit underneath your other gloves.

Thermo Gloves provide your hands with pleasant warmth and thus offer ideal comfort for the winter.  They adapt to the shape of your hand and provide ideal wearing comfort.

The Thermo Gloves have 3 different temperature levels BagThis way you can choose your own ideal temperature, depending on whether you get cold hands quickly or not.If you are no longer cold, you can turn the heat off without having to take off the Thermo Gloves or the outside gloves, because the on/off button is located on the outside of the Thermo Gloves.

Thermo Gloves are equipped with high-tech carbon fibres that conduct the heat. These fibres are not only extremely thin and flexible, they also ensure an even distribution of heat.

The heating time is between 2 and 5 hours, depending on the temperature level, but that does not mean that you have to have cold hands after that. Simply replace the accumulator, without even having to take off the gloves. The spare accumulators are extremely lightweight and weigh only 59 grams per piece. Thus, they are light enough to always have a second pair of accumulators along. You will not even notice that you are carrying them.

How to Fix a Polystone Figurine

Polystone is a material made of resin, stone dust and epoxy.  It is used to make decorative wall hangers, piggy banks and some of the other products you will find in the Nature's Window collection.  With proper care, polystone figurines can last a lifetime...accidents can happen.  The good news is that polystone usually breaks clean and the repair is relatively easy!

Things You'll Need to Repair Your Polystone Figurine
  • instant bond glue gel (found at most hardware stores like Lowe's)
  • Toothpick
  • Dusting pad

Instructions

  1. Carefully dust the broken pieces with a soft dusting pad.  
  2. Carefully wipe the broken surfaces with a damp cloth and put them aside to dry.
  3. Apply a few drops of instant bond glue gel to the end of the broken piece of polystone. (It is our experience that you only need 2 to 3 drops per 1/2" diameter) 
  4. Hold the two pieces together until the glue sets (about 30 seconds to a minute).  You will know that the pieces are set if you let go and the pieces stay together.  Immediately wipe away any excess glue
  5. We suggest using two-part epoxy to repair any break that is not a "clean break" or a large break.  You can mix the epoxy according the the instructions on the package.  Apply the epoxy with a toothpick and hold the parts together until they set (this may take several minutes).  Smooth the epoxy with a toothpick.
  6. For best results, we suggest that you allow your repair to dry overnight before doing any paint touch ups.

If you have any questions we'd be happy to hear from you!
Contact us at info@natures-window.com or 1-800-363-0421

The above instructions are only a suggestion
we can't be responsible for the results

The man behind the vision... @ Nature's Window

 

 

Although Brad was always fascinated by the outdoors, he never dreamed that he would one day build a business, with the central theme being nature and wildlife.    

As a child, Brad spent  sunny summer days at the family farm playing in the barn and hay fields.  As he grew, his career pathway was directed into the finances and attained a prominent position in the banking industry.  

Years passed, his passion for the outdoors remained;

It was his first purchase of a hand carved decoy that brought Brad back to his roots.  He admired the extraordinary colors and workmanship of the Wood Duck.  It was while holding the decoy in his hands that he knew, it was time for change.  And it was that very moment, Nature's Window was born.

Twenty Eight years ago, Nature's Window was conceived and it was shortly thereafter Brad committed his entire career to providing nature themed quality products.

How does Brad feel today?  
"I love what I do.  I love the people.  I love designing new products...this is where I am meant to be."

    For a Good Duck Call Roger!

     

    The artistic vision of Master Carver, Roger Desjardins, reflects his respect for nature and all its beauty. His detailed carvings capture with extreme realism the likeness of waterfowl that have inspired him since his youth.  Raised along the shores of the St. Lawrence River, he grew to love the waterfowl that surrounded him. A naturally-gifted artist, Roger began his carving career by helping his father repair battered decoys and it wasn't long before Roger began his own creations establishing himself as one of the pioneers in the art of decorative decoy carving.

    A self-taught artist and seventeen times winner of Decorative Decoy Championships and numerous "Best of Show" and "Artist of the Year" awards, Roger Desjardins' decoys are renowned for their aesthetic beauty and extraordinary attention to detail. A cherished collectible, his original works can be found in wildlife galleries and fine gift shops throughout the world.
