Chattin with the Commissioner

Over the past year or so, I have interviewed Mr. Woodcock about a variety of different things concerning the deer population, funding and land conservation. With this year’s deer numbers coming in above average, I figured it was time for another check in.

I have some questions but are there any that you want answered?

Some questions on the list so far:

* what does the increase in deer harvested mean for the overall population

* were the majority of deer taken in the central/southern Maine areas? was there an increase in the northern/eastern parts of Maine?

* how is the predator fund/campaign going so far this year?

  1. I'm very interested in the eastern Maine numbers. The local tagging station was very slow and way down until the last 10 days, then I'm sure they passed last year's number.

  2. When is the interview Erin?

Do I need to worry about ticks?

If you have read this blog for any period of time, you know how much I love deer ticks.  As I head out for turkey season in a couple of weeks... how concerned do I need to be about those little blood suckers coming after me?  (Rabid, Duck Hunter...) I have...

Part 2: Common Bonds: Discussing family and hunting with Bryan White

Last week, I posted the first part of my interview with Bryan White. Here is the rest of our interview. Enjoy! What do you think can be done to promote the outdoors to more people? To get kids interested in hunting and fishing? More government funded organizations...

They mock me

Ever since the season ended on June 6, we have had turkeys on every pull from the trail camera.  Every time! Clearly these guys are just mocking me.
