Cooking the Perfect Duck

With duck season approaching, we thought it would be a good idea to talk about one of the most important parts of the duck hunt -cooking your duck.
Duck meat can be one of the most delicious things you have ever tasted, or it can be stored in a container for days until you eventually feed it to your dog.  If you would like to experience the first of these two options, make sure to do your research!

My personal favorite duck recipe came from a chef at the Lemon Zest Restaurant in Costa Rica.  My family had been struggling to find...

The Importance Of Gun Safety

Having a passion for the western lifestyle is a statement we take seriously. We love the outdoors and the great activities that go along with it.  Firearms are a big part of the Western Lifestyle.  From taking your kids on their first hunting trip to going to the shooting rage, shooting can be a fun and safe family activity.
Now some people may be thinking, “did he just say the words shooting and safe in the same sentence?”  So I’ll say it again: Shooting guns CAN be a fun and safe activity, if properly planned and executed.
Looking at statistics related to guns and gun safety,...

Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness is kinda like having that odd tool in your garage.  It remains unused most of the time, but when you need it, you’re sure glad you have it!
We all have important agendas and busy schedules.  Sometimes we are so focused on the task at hand we forget that emergencies could happen at any time. Nobody knows when the next emergency will happen but that doesn’t mean that it won’t.
September is National Preparedness month, and C-A-L Ranch Stores would like to remind everyone about the importance of Emergency Preparedness.
C-A-L Ranch Stores provides a great selection of emergency preparedness gear. From...

A Closer Look at Cowgirl Tuff


Few clothing brands represent the western lifestyle as well as Cowgirl Tuff.   Owner and Lead Designer Lisa Bollin has a great sense for fashion and receives her inspiration from her western roots.  Looking through the Cowgirl Tuff catalog, it is easy to see the passion behind the clothing.


Lisa began her career selling tops at barrel racing events throughout the United States. As the demand grew, so did her company.  From 2004 to 2014, Cowgirl Tuff went from selling wholesale in 18 stores to 1700 stores!

(click picture to shop Cowgirl Tuff & B. Tough clothing!)


Although Lisa is the Owner and Lead Designer at Cowgirl Tuff, she has had great support from her husband, her daughter, and even her horse!  When asked what impact her horses have had on her business, she replied, “Huge! I feel I have the upper hand compared to some western companies as I truly live the lifestyle.”

You can shop for Cowgirl Tuff and B. Tuff apparel on The C-A-L Ranch Online Store.
