I would like to think I had a successful season. I went to Maine early in the season and had a combo bear/snowshoe hare hunt, both with hounds. I shot a beautiful 7 pointer the day before my 2nd daughter was born. And then was lucky enough to get out for some half day hunts on most Saturdays unless work got in the way.
My father harvested his first Pa hare and I had a youth hunter miss one. I shot my first hare and grouse with my contender and although I didn’t kill a lot of rabbits my dogs ran well and I did a lot of missing.
Sounds like a good season.
Where and when did you hunt Maine? How was the hunt?
Congratulations on the new young one in your life. Soon they will be tagging along and hot coco will be the order of the day. Waugh!
Thank you, I went to Grandlake Stream. We hunted bears with Laney’s Guide Service. My father became good friends with him over the last few years so he let me keep my dogs in his kennels while we bear hunted and then I ran them on Sunday and hunted the afternoons once we were done bear hunting. We hunted the 3rd week of October.
