Ratchet straps, cargo hooks and fence posts: Not your typical ice fishing gear

077

I have this buddy who claims to LOVE fishing…But apparently he doesn’t consider ice fishing to be in the same category, so after a poor night’s sleep a few years back he decided to stand me up for a planned day out on the ice…Instead, he suggested we do something more amusing…like some mid-winter yard […]

Remembering Sandy Hook

Sweet little babies, waking up excited about Santa coming. A time of year when the little ones are just so happy to be alive and are enjoying all the magic of the season. Not aware of the monsters that are out there, and so innocent of the evil things we do to each other… And […]

I thought I was all ready for ice fishing season. Then I discovered I had been sabotaged!

!!!Atemp1

Without a doubt, ice fishing is one of my all-time favorite activities, because it is SO MUCH more than just fishing! I mean there are SO many things you can do while you are ice fishing: Hang out on the ice with friends, cooking, listen to music, ride snowmobiles/ATVs, sit in a comfy chair and […]

The “Mighty Hunters”…and me

Tree stand

Let me tell you how my son’s first deer hunt went. I want to warn you that our guide for the day, fellow blogger John Floyd, and my son William will try to tell you something different. Let me assure you that everything I am about to tell you is entirely accurate. I swear it’s […]

My son’s first hunt

010

October 1st was a perfect day for a boy’s first hunting trip ever. The sun was out, and it was warm. Intermittent clouds kept it from being too warm. While the start of the day was later than I would have liked, it didn’t really matter. I was going hunting. With my son. And we […]

Seriously…I hate open water fishing!

_______

Fellow blogger and registered Maine Guide, John Floyd often posts pictures of big fish he has caught, and almost as often I comment on how I rarely even DREAM of catching fish that big! Accepting that catching a bass in the four-pound class is just not going to happen for me. Being a great guy, […]

Gooey blob in the middle of the road identified as Stetson man who melted (Humor)

Doug Alley

Stetson authorities called in scientists from around the world to help them identify a large gooey puddle that was found in the middle of the road early Wednesday morning. A local resident was walking along, seeking a “Cleary” that had popped up on his “Pok√©mon Go” app when he slipped in something in the street. […]

Worried about tick-borne illnesses? Get ticks tested for free!

Many of you know that I am not a big fan of ticks. They have literally prevented me from enjoying outings in the woods. I rarely venture out of my chicken patrolled yard. I hate ticks. I think we should use DDT for a number of years to reduce ticks, and many other insects that […]

Deadly predators have been in Maine woods all month!

Brian Feulner | BDN

Spring is here in Maine, and people are flocking to the woods. Folks are hiking, biking, riding ATV’s …EVEN HUNTING! Wait…HUNTING??? I thought that was only in November? Sorry folks! The first Saturday in May started Maine’s Spring Turkey Hunt, and despite all the scare tactics used by non hunters, you have been sharing the […]

The “Little Farm Orchestra”

I’m sitting here on a rainy Monday morning listening to music of a rare kind. There is no real rhythm, or tune. The only beat comes from the dripping of the eaves onto the¬†various bowls, buckets, and wooden items below, and it has no pattern you can follow. The horn section is filled with the […]
