Heavy Hardwood Corner

By Backwoods Brandon

The rural life is all I’ve ever known. I was raised in the woods, where I learned to catch fish, handle a firearm, have respect for my natural surroundings, and how to give a firm handshake. I still call the woods home and a 10-acre chunk of Northern Michigan’s Ausable State Forest is where my wife and I have decided to raise our young daughter, teaching her the same lessons her grandparents taught us.
