    Coyotes, deer and the interstate..

    I was driving down I-89 at first light Thursday . I saw a young deer standing in the alder whips near the northbound lane. Then I noticed two other deer further up the bank. As I get closer I saw that the young deer was in a submissive posture with an arched back and head hung low. Almost...

    North East Spring Bear hunt recommendations.

    I have been looking to do a family hunting trip with my grown up children. Having one that is a teacher makes a fall hunt almost impossible. My daughters schools classes in VA end in May. I am thinking about a Spring bear hunt the first week in June. I have been looking at New Brunswick but...

    I had family obligations that kept me hunting close to home this weekend. When walking through the landing that I cleared, I saw a tree moving oddly. Turns out it was a small 4 pt making a scrape. Then he walks by me to get an apple and make another scrape. Kinda long, about 5minutes and...

    First year Chestnut tree report

    Last year I decided to plant some Dustan Chestnut trees in the landing that I cleared last year. I had removed all the stumps and planted some rye to keep the ferns out. My Chestnut Hill trees arrived in early April but, I kept them dormant until May. I planted them like any tree with a mix...

    Introduction to crossbows class

    Recently Vermont has started a conversation about using crossbows during archery season. I really don’t know squat about crossbows. I have never even shot one. As a hunter education instructor, I need to get up to speed. I found that the state has teamed up with a few local bow shops. These...

    Yankee Sportsman Classsic

    I was looking over my Yankee Sportsman Classic “newspaper” and quickly got bored. Is it just me or is the show stale? It seems to me its the same show every year. There are 21 seminar slots and only three are NOT for deer hunting. Don’t get me wrong I know that deer hunting is #1 but, I would...

    Swamp Donkey......WTH!!

    As long as I can remember we referred to Moose as “Swamp Donkeys”. I dropped the term at a dinner over the holidays and the table became oddly quiet. Later I asked one of my urban/in the know nephews what was up. He googled the term on his phone and showed me: Swamp Donkey  A very ugly...

    A little mission creep.

    Last year I decided for a little project, I'd free up a few apple trees on a plateau on a ridge behind our house . I started by clearing hemlocks that were right on a tall apple tree. The a neighbor who was building a post and beam “man cave”, heard I was cutting hemlock. So he an I tag...

    Coyote with a fawn?

    I cropped this the best I could. I set this camera for fawn pictures in an area that i got a lot of twin fawn pics last year. Sadly this sure looks like a coyote with a fawn to me. Any other thoughts?

    Little help..Rangefinder suggestions, anything new?

    Hey folks: I presently use a 15 yr old Bushnell yardage pro compact 600. It works great but, is designed to be used two handed, sideways like binoculars. Ranges 16 yards to 600 without arc. Other than size, no complaints. Now my kids want to use it and have some Cabelas gift cards burning a...
