Re: Looking for Guided Snowshoe Hare - Father's 50th
Yep, I was there 2 yrs ago, in Feb. However we tried to contact him this past year to go up again and he didn't return our calls or messages, not sure what the story was there. We will be looking to go somewhere again this year but not sure if we will try him again or not. As far as the hunt 2 yrs ago, we brought our own food, the cabin was fine, not plush but served the purpose. Hunting was very good as far as numbers of hares and his dogs worked very well. He did rotate his dogs using fresh ones after a couple hours or so, which I thought was good because at that time a few of the dogs were older so he didn't run them the whole day. When he thought the dogs were "done" we would head back to camp limit or not which was usually by 2PM or so. Which I was ok with, although a couple of the guys would've liked to keep hunting until the end of the day since we had not limited out. Chris, the guide was a nice guy and good to hunt with. We had 5 hunters, can't remember how many SS we got but everyone got some shots and we came close to a limit both days we were there. We're going to check around a little for this year or we may try him again if we can get in touch with him. I'm heading to maine to my friends place for deer this year, he also does snowshoe hunts so we may go there. If you'd like to call him or check his site for Maine: Wilderness Escape Outfitters, Randy Flannery. There is an article and picture on deer hunting in the Oct. Field & Stream featuring him. Good luck searching.
