hunting2If you live in Merrill or if you are here for a visit – we have recreation for all four seasons. We begin the year with snowmobiling, skiing, (down hill mountains – within ½ hour) cross-country skiing on trails across beautiful farms, blanketed with fresh fallen snow. You can spend the day ice skating with family and friends in the crisp, fresh outdoors. The air smelling so fresh and clean – the ice sparkling like fine Austrian crystal under the afternoon sun. Many local residents enjoy ice fishing on local lakes and ponds. Springtime brings baseball, softball, more fishing, canoeing and kayaking. You can catch a mess of fish, pick a bushel of fiddleheads and have a scrumptious meal compliments of nature! Summertime brings four - wheeling, hiking, swimming, baseball, golfing nearby, and weekly entertainment at the local Community Center. Summertime also brings strawberry festivals put on by local churches and alumni associations. Summer nights are spent outdoors listening to the frogs, birds, and crickets and stargazing. Fall time brings hunting, trapping, hiking and watching the night sky for Northern Lights. Within fifteen minutes driving time, we have riding stables, an Amish Community, a four season's resort and a Red Deer farm. There are local hunting guides available and hunting lodges close by. This is the way people should live, work and play. Lest you think all we do is play, residents of Merrill and the surrounding towns are some of the hardest working people you will ever meet. We are a community made up of honest, hardworking, intelligent, caring, and salt- of- the- earth people.
