Howdy folks just stumbled across this forum today and found it very informing! Our group has been hunting North Country together for over thirty years and taken some nice deer. But as you all know there are many lean years as well. We started hunting back in the mid 80's up at Camp Phoenix at Lake Neswandok then moved on to Bowlin Camps . Had many a good year hunting that area until John Smallwood and his wonderful wife sold the place. Also the infamous Roxanne Quimby messed up that area as well. Presently we hunt out of Kingfield up behind Tufts Pond and that area and have had some luck there as well. The thing I like about hunting North Country is the solitude and the mountains. If we harvest Deer that is great but the friendships and family times are priceless. Our group is getting older mostly retired except for my son and my best friends son. Not a giant herd up there as many of you know but some real big boys for sure. I hunt down here in Mass mostly muzzleloader and have taken quite a few but not the same as up in God's Country! Really a pleasure to find a forum as this with folks that share the same passion as we do!
