A large part of Duluth's heritage comes from logging operations. While it may not be the 1800's anymore, woodworking, chopping firewood, and tree felling are all common activities in the surrounding Duluth areas to this day. At Duluth Pack, we love to honor these traditions and give people the tools they need to get the job done, in this case, those tools are quality axes and hatchets.

Duluth Pack carries two iconic and quality axe brands: Hults Bruk and Gransfors Bruk. To learn more about these companies, check out Minnesota’s Logging Heritage on our blog page or click the links to go to their website. Both companies hand forge their axes in Sweeden and join Duluth Pack in being around for over 100 years. These axes are second to none in durability, quality, and performance.

Exploring the Minnesota North Shore | Duluth Pack

Exploring the Minnesota North Shore

The Minnesota North Shore is the expanse of coastline spanning over 150 miles that starts in Duluth and continues along Lake Superior into Ontario. Over 3 million people visit the Northshore every year, and it's not hard to see why. There are state parks, hiking trails, historical sites, and scenic towns all along the path that are great for any hiker, camper, or canoer to stop and explore. Be sure to make a day or weekend out of the experience, as it's easy to fall in love with the scenery, so packing smart is a must if you're going to stay a bit longer. Let's go over some of the sights that make the North Shore one of the best hiking trips you'll ever experience. 
Aside from the starting city of Duluth (which is a must-stop of course), there are dozens of spots to stop and enjoy the natural beauty of the state. The first major must-see is Two Harbors. At 24 miles from the start, Two Harbors features the only real working lighthouse on the North Shore. It also has the Sonju trail, which allows you to see an ore ship being loaded. 
The Essentials of Trap Shooting | Duluth Pack

The Essentials of Trap Shooting

People are antsy to get outside now that the nation-wide stay at home orders are starting to wind down. So, what new outdoor activities should you consider now that you can go out? Go trap shooting with a group of friends. Even though some restaurants and bars might still be closed, gun clubs are open. Trapshooting is a great American sport that is even older than professional baseball in this country. So, what do you need to know about participating in this exciting sport?

Trapshooting dates back to the late 1700s. The first recognized competitive event was held in Cincinnati Ohio in the year 1831. The original targets for the sport were birds released hats in a random sequence. Glass balls would come to replace the birds in the 1860s. The clay discs that are used in today's competitive shooting arrived to replace the glass bulbs in the early 1880s, about the same time Duluth Pack was founded (1882).
