My goals for 2015

My goals for 2015

In 2015, I have a few goals that I am hoping to finally accomplish.

1. Get a turkey!  I came close last year, but I am hoping that the 3rd time is the charm.

2. Goose hunting.  I had plans last year that fell through so I am hoping to try that this year.

3. Catch a ‘keep-able‘ fish.

4. Go bear hunting again.  I will never beat this year’s hunt, but I can try.

5. Get that 8-pointer!

6. Go with biologists to a bear den.

7. Shoot a moose (this will be on my list each year until I do.)

8. Shoot a coyote.

9. Learn about trapping. I don’t know if I will actually do it, but I want to go and see how it’s done.

What else should I add to my list?

My magnificent bear

  1. Shoot a partridge!

    • YUM!

  2. Learn tracking and sign reading skills ūüôā

    • For which animals? I am decent at tracking and reading deer sign.

    • ok…Deer was what I was talking about..Lets add woods navigation

  3. Go to the "Bear's Den" at the Union at University of Maine and celebrate life in general.

  4. Congratulations on a great 2014! Sounds like a great list for 2015! Kudos on #9. A bit of a controversial subject, but if you go and experience it with a legitimate trapper I would bet most of the internal controversy goes away. I would be more than happy to help, but I am long ways away and it seems like you have some really good people in your network already!

    • Chris, when is a good time to go? I could make a trip to Northern ME work.

The unlikely bear hunter

A week long walk in the woods

With my dad. And two 30-06 shotguns. Here is where we were: We walked all over Zone 17 looking for a moose. We met at least 100 hunters over the course of the week who were riding the roads waiting for the sight of the over sized cow with hair... it was like musical...

Name that scat

We spent a few hours in the woods last weekend and I came across this pile of scat on the side of an old log.  It almost looked like the mystery critter could sit on the log and use it as a toilet seat. Who left this behind? It looks like turkey poop but there is...
