False Worship of Natural Restoration

Natural restoration, much like natural regulation is a false god. There can never be this idealistic existence so long as man shares “nature” with….well, nature. It was never intended that nature be left alone to its own devices. The plan has always been that man would “manage” the resources within nature for sustainable uses. From […]

First Snow

Parts of Maine woke up to a bit of snow this morning. On my way to work this morning, I caught sight of this beautiful creature experiencing the first snowfall of the year. She better look out. Maine is in the midst of deer hunting season and some hunters are getting very interested in filling […]

Deer Sanctuaries on Maine’s Seacoast Islands

We continuously hear of Maine’s coastal islands, where many residents live, overrun with deer. Residents have had to resort to killing deer in order to limit the destruction the deer can cause.

Oh, the cries to protect wilderness! Many cried to protect the beauty and the “wilderness” of the Yellowstone National Park. And did they? I suppose it depends on your political perspective definition of what “wilderness” is…right Slick Willie? Yellowstone, often described as the model of how all lands should be “protected” has limited access but […]

Outdoors in Maine: The National Monument to Kafka

He also seeks to seduce us with his assurance that the new Monument encompasses a deep respect for “Maine’s outdoor recreation heritage,” or that it acknowledges that “hunting is critical to the economy of northern Maine.” That has a hollow ring. Bear hunting, which is a key economic industry for rural Maine guides and outfitters, […]
