Call of the Wild: Minnesotan’s Journey to Conservation Chronicled in Toyota-Sponsored Film

Six years ago, Keng Yang didn’t give much thought to the outdoors, even though his father had long used hunting as a source of food in his native Laos and now rural Minnesota.  This all changed when Keng acquired a hunting dog, named Kaiya, bridging the generational divide between a father and his American-born son, and forging a newfound appreciation for the natural world.

Keng’s tale has been chronicled in a 16-minute short film, “Kaiya,” which recently launched publicly and virally through Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, a non-profit wildlife habitat conservation organization based in Saint Paul.  The film was directed by fellow Minnesotan…READ MORE.

The Mythical Beast and the Harvest

Chicago, IL (March 13, 2023) – A manticore is a mythical creature that features the head of a human, the body of a lion, and a tail of a scorpion and was first mentioned around 400 B.C.

With confidence, I can say that the MANTICORE is a beast, and with its new metal-detecting technology – especially Multi-IQ+ – the modern machine provides an edge in finding both more and deeper targets.

I’ve retrieved a lot of coins and vintage items in the last several weeks with my new MANTICORE. Finding targets as deep as…READ MORE.

Get Healthy, America! Un-Fry Chicken & Potatoes Using Hi Mountain Seasonings

RIVERTON, Wyo. (March 7, 2023) — We all love fried chicken and fried potatoes, right? The smell, the taste … But we also know that eating fried foods is about as unhealthy as it gets. Not only do fried foods have way more calories than their non-fried counterparts, but they’re also often cooked in processed vegetable or seed oils. When heated, these oils can form trans fats, which have been shown to raise your LDL – the bad cholesterol. And regularly eating fried foods has been associated with a number of health problems, including an increased risk of several diseases – and an earlier death.

In fact, a 2017 study…READ MORE
