Is it October yet?  Plane tickets are bought and I'm ready for this adventure to begin already.  I've been talking with dad several times a week.  He's got a couple potential ones spotted, but the prime scouting time is just beginning.

The fun starts Monday the 12th. :IBCOOL:

Myself, my dad, and a family friend will be staying in this camp for the whole week.  It's way back in the sticks and in the heart of moose country.  I won't have cell or internet service, but I'll have some pictures to share once I get back to civilization.

We will be concentrating around the Kennebago Lake area (that's where the camp is).

Tell that "family friend of yours" hi from me.  Hopefully I'm up that way in the next few years if I draw.  Good luck to you and Barry!

talked with a friend back home, says the biologists are seeing a big downturn in numbers due they think to harsh winter and tick kills recently...

Looking forward to the pictures and story. Congrats to your dad.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Sweet!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Hopefully they did not end up on the wrong side of a Northwoods law episode!  :chuckle: Lets see some moose!

I've been busy visiting with family I haven't seen in years, but I'll toss up some pictures for you guys real quick.  We didn't end up on Northwoods Law.  We were too law abiding for the show. ;)

First pic is after the shot.  The bull was out in the clearing hiding in some small saplings.
