Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine Pushing Three Bills This Session

I have heard that the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) is pushing for support of three bills being presented before the Maine Legislature, that are described as in support and protection of hunting, fishing and trapping, changing the way signatures are gathered for public referendum items, and banning public referendum on wildlife issues. Let me […]

Socially Acceptable Levels of Nonsense

It’s beyond foolishness that fish and game departments across this totalitarian nation – that thinks it’s a democracy – aim to implement “socially acceptable levels” of wild animals as it pertains to their legislative mandates to “manage” them. Wildlife management is a science – even though more often than not that science is severely fouled […]

Stay Off My Land You SOB

Or something like that. This morning I was reading George Smith’s article in which he stated that it was time for the Maine Legislature to enact two new laws. One would make it legal to provide “wild game” dinners and charge money for them. Probably in this day and age, it is about time. But […]

All You Big and Burly Men?

Perhaps no more! The sissified America probably doesn’t produce any more Big and Burly Men, only Girly Men. Many years ago, Dick Curless, sang this song and it was popular. Of course things have changed over the years and the Haynesville Woods have been tamed considerably, and more men wear women’s clothes. The things you […]

See where motorist vs. moose crashes happened in 2016

In looking at the map, included in this link, isn’t it odd that moose/automobile collisions happened where people drive? The other question I have is this: The report says that the 305 reported moose collisions with autos, is down from the previous year’s tally of 327. Is this decrease in proportion to the believed reduction […]

Last Time I Checked Canada Lynx Also Eat During Summers in Maine

In a recent article I just read about Canada lynx in Maine, the author said: “The environment in Maine is perfect to support Canada lynx populations. Harsh winters, deep snow, dense evergreen forests and sub-zero temperatures are exactly what the lynx likes. “…Some believe both lynx and coyotes would compete for the same food, but […]

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. This perceived phenomenon has existed for a very long time and yet is incompletely reported as some sort of modern event without historical […]

Hacking Down Maine’s Forests for Canada Lynx

When Maine applied to the fascist United States Federal Government to obtain a permit that would allow for the accidental “taking” of Canada lynx, called an Incidental Take Permit, part of the agreement was that Maine would “provide habitat” in a 22,000 acre management area. Yesterday, Maine outdoor writer George Smith reported on the upcoming […]
