Grunts make a splash at Toronto Sportsmen's Show
Lance and Landin McFarlane developed the throat lozenge that uses natural products from the bush
A pair of brothers from Thunder Bay, Ont. say the Toronto Sportsmen's Show last weekend was the experience of a lifetime.
Lance and Landin McFarlane took part in the five-day trade show to promote the throat lozenge for hunters they developed called Grunts.
"We didn't know what to expect as this is our first trade show that we have really been to," Lance McFarlane told CBC Thunder Bay's outdoor columnist, Gord Ellis.
Grunts is a throat lozenge the brothers say is aimed at hunters, and made up of natural ingredients found in the bush, like balsam fir.
The idea came to them while they were out bow hunting for moose and a cold ruined Landin's cow call, scaring off the bull they were tracking.
Getting a chance to network was also a big part of the week — something that Lance said was "phenomenal."
"Everybody works together as a team down here in this outdoor industry," he added.
