* Honored as Sportsman of the Year from the New England Outdoor Writers Association.

* Turkey hunting.

* The Maine Moose lottery held in my hometown and my friend Bryan performed.

* Mushroom foraging with Staci.

* Going to the ribbon cutting of the Ezra Smith Wildlife Conservation area to honor my friend George.

* Bear hunting with Staci and then going out with Bill Dereszewski and having Robin comes with us.

* Deer hunting with Dad and Hubs.

* Taking O out for his first sit in the new deer stand.

* Seeing lots and lots of wildlife including a fisher and bobcat, both of which I had never seen in the wild before.

It has been busy but I am excited to find out what 2019 has in store!
