Life, Liberty and Happiness is Holding Hands with an Animal

It has always amazed me the amount of, not only ignorance (a case of failure to learn), but stupidity (it just cannot be corrected) that exists in the world today. One of the most revealing events in the revelation of ignorance and stupidity, all too often comes to us in the form of blind hypocrisy. […]

Maine’s New Deer Management Plan Mostly Bureaucratic Nonsense

*Editor’s Note* – After posting this article and rereading it the following day, I realized that when I made the statement that the reason Maine has to have a “new” 15-year plan for deer, moose, bear, turkeys, etc. was because the Legislature makes them do it. This is true but it is also a necessary […]

Maine’s Seemingly Endless Debate on Sunday Hunting

I’ll give George Smith, a writer and sportsman’s activist from Maine, credit for sticking with something he believes in.

Maine: Two Canada Lynx Found Dead

Press Release from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife: A reward of up to $5,500 is being offered […]

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 […]

Rat In My Trap This Morning

This mornings trapping adventure rewarded me with a Pack Rat. I immediately named him Dewey.  He was the targeted critter and I got him.. He’s made raids on my shop my fifth wheel, and the crawl space under the house, the apple trees. He climbs the trees and runs across the roof. He is guilty […]
