    What brought you here?

    Says I joined in 2004. Not sure that is true or not. Came over from the old Huntingchat site with a lot of the guys that no longer post here. Many of the same reasons already cited. Got tired of sites where a vast majority of the posters had no clue about northeast hunting (not that it is...

    Winter ticks are diminishing calf survival.

    I roam around a lot in 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6. I've never had the "bites." My buddy, on the other hand, gets hammered every year.

    Gear?

    My handheld GPS is at the bottom of East Grand Lake so I won't be carrying that anymore. Too bad as I had a ton a waypoints on there that I miss.

    Winter ticks are diminishing calf survival.

    From what I’m reading there isn’t much they can do. They did remove a lot of the ticks on some of those collared and survival rates were higher They are also working with land mangers to try to have the moose winter in different areas. If I read it correctly more diverse habitat so the moose...

    Winter ticks are diminishing calf survival.

    Quebec and New Brunswick are also having winter tick issues. In some areas of Quebec there was a 92% mortality rate of calves. In most areas it is 50% or more. Laval University is doing the studies. Both provinces are seeing declines in moose populations.

    Winter ticks are diminishing calf survival.

    Maybe they should put flea and tick collars on them?

    Lifetime Hunting License

    My oldest son hunted from about 5 to 13-14. Then he discovered that girls were warmer and smelled better. He didn’t hunt for a long time. At 25ish he picked it up again and is obsessed. It goes in spurts I guess My youngest never gave it up

    Herter's Ammo

    I used Herters to shoot the only deer I ever have killed with a 243. No issues and it was accurate in that rifle. I think at the time it was made by PPU. It is now made by Winchester

    Winter ticks are diminishing calf survival.

    I don't believe the adaptive moose hunt proved to be the bloodbath IF&W was anticipating.

    Winter ticks are diminishing calf survival.

    Pretty discouraging to see the condition of the moose that are infested with ticks and very sad seeing the calves standing around waiting to die in the winter. The moose my brother killed last Fall was rubbed in a few places but not that bad. f

    Winter ticks are diminishing calf survival.

    I strongly believe that the end of moose hunting in Maine will happen in my lifetime, certainly in my sons lifetimes.

    Lifetime Hunting License

    Was thinking about this. Again, not Vermont. I know people who bought their kids lifetime licenses. Kids left the state and haven't returned to hunt or fish. Wonder what percentage of the sales are like that?

    Lifetime Hunting License

    Here in Maine we have to pay an "agent" fee. When I fill it out on my computer and use my paper to print, aren't I the agent?

    Off to a great start!

    I have made many gestures, offers, and suggestions about his boat and hunting spots, being the nice guy I am. All of them more than fair and generous but they seem to fall on deaf ears. He'll learn that dear ol' dad wasn't wrong after all. The Croc collection he can keep.

    I'll let him fill you in if he wants but it is an 18 foot Weldcraft Sport Angler. Lots of pictures of what they look like on-line. Nice rugged boat.
