When bear hunting…stealth and patience is the name of the game

Follow me along as I share stories from bear camp 2017

Why is the answer always, “It’s your hunt buddy!”?

Big Bob Chandler picked me up for our bear hunt on Tucker Ridge at 930am on Sunday morning. We would be heading up past Lincoln over to Rt 6 to hunt from a blind over bait. Our Guide, John Floyd, had been sending us game cam pictures for weeks and we were excited. We talked […]

A letter to Summer, on a hot muggy day…

Dear Summer, You suck SO bad! You can’t be happy with just heat…NO! You have to toss in humidity too! What little breeze there is just stirs the hot air around. The breeze isn’t even enough to keep the bugs away. If a person were to dare go sit in the shade during the day, […]

My first (and LAST day) as an emergency dispatch operator

“This blog post is fiction and the events described did not happen. Please enjoy.” Sunday, May 28 was the first day of my new job as an emergency dispatch operator for the Bangor area. As it turned out, I would only take one call. But the guy must have been some kind of criminal mastermind […]

‘Great Fiery Orb’ seen over Maine on tuesday identified

Residents all over Maine awoke on Tuesday morning to a strange and terrifying sight in the eastern sky. What is being described as a “large fiery orb” hung low in the east, and as the morning wore on it slowly climbed higher and higher as it traveled west. Many people ran for shelter in caves. […]

Fooling a turkey is EASY!

The invasion of red-winged blackbirds

I was out in the yard enjoying a brief moment of sunshine during the April showers. My front yard has almost full southern exposure even though I have a lot of trees around me because I am in a little gully. The trees and shrubs thoughtfully planted by previous residents are the types that never […]

Kenduskeag Stream -1 Fat guy in a kayak -0

My wife has gotten sick of hearing me say how bad I wanna kayak down this, or that set of rapids, so  as we drove over the bridge in Kenduskeag she suggested I “try” kayaking down the rapids so she could get it on video. “You think I won’t?” I asked her. “Knock yourself out! […]

They say bad luck comes in threes…

Despite spending $489, I was still denied my NASCAR experience

There is an old saying that says bad things always happen in groups of three, and if that is true, I am sure glad, because right now I don’t think I could stand anymore…And I KNOW our wallet couldn’t! It all started with a trip to Newport for Chinese food. My son and I both like a […]

How my ungrateful kid cost me a World’s Record fish!

So I took my boy William fishing today. Since I am a pickerel slayer, I drilled 5 holes, and set the traps, then told Will to go ahead and choose where he wanted to set his traps. He’s just a beginner, so I figured I would let him fish my traps. You know, so he […]
