    Wolf evidence found in Maine

    Good on you NH H. Too your point about encouraging us to participate locally, many years ago I learned that just one or two knowledgeable and passionate individuals can have a big influence on how local decisions turn out. This goes as well for decisions made in committee in state legislatures.

    First week shotgun season report

    L2 - Great report, thanks. I have done a fair amount of research and was fortunate enough to get a district wildlife manager on the phone who filled me in, and a hunting friend who lived in Montague for 25 years before recently retiring to Fla. I hope to get there for MZ, but you know how that...

    Covid-19 in deer?

    NH Hunter … I was not in any way insulted or feeling disparaged by anything you said. I just was using the term “sucker” loosely I guess. Happy hunting my friend.

    Glowa…..no credibility. If he gets his wolves, next he’ll want grizzly bears

    Covid-19 in deer?

    I guess I’m a sucker. Gotten both shots plus booster. Glad my parents had me vaccinated for small pox, and polio to name a couple. I had a good friend that got polio as a very young boy in the 1950’s. Braces on his legs and crutches all his short life. He passed away at age 40. That said, I am...

    Just picked up first 2 rifles in a long time

    Cam- Please do not attempt putting any round in the magazine that is not specifically the cartridge indicated in the stamp on the barrel. You are over thinking it. There are lots of different 7mm or .284 caliber cartridges. For safety sake consider them not interchangeable. Very dangerous.

    Just picked up first 2 rifles in a long time

    Figures the “expert” at Cabelas didn’t know the answer. All I know is I want the scope to be as low as possible to the receiver/ barrel.

    Western Mass deer hunting

    Lester - Haven’t done anything about it, but it sounds like I should. I have heard that the muzzleloader season there is a lot of fun too. Good luck on your hunt, and thanks again.

    2021 Maine Trip

    Not a real fan of mz week, but it looks like I’ll get back to WMD 3 for a few more days. Have to keep trying, and take advantage of the mz permit that comes with my old fart license

    2021 Maine Trip

    Wow on the pic of the bear! Too bad about conditions. Free advice is worth what you pay for it, and you probably know this. My experience on noisy ground was to move faster than I normally would have (pre-bad knees). Last good buck I shot this way was with doe and turned around to see what was...
