And a Happy Thanksgiving it was especially for Tom who shot this 180 pound, 8 pointer on Wednesday. Marie is out today in the snow looking to bring one home too.

As you can see from the webcams we received about four inches of snow overnight and it's still snowing at 10:30 this morning. I hope you have your sleds ready!

Congratulations Jeff on this nice 138 pound, 5 point buck. To say the least without snow on the ground and unseasonably warm weather the hunting has been more challenging than usual.
The last few nights have been cold with a hard frost setting in now. The deer have started move and we have registered several taken locally over the past two days.
Of course the hunters and the snowmobilers are all praying for snow. The more the merrier and the sooner the better.

Wilderness First Aid Training

Bosebuck Mountain Camps along with SOLO is pleased to offer Wilderness First Aid (WFA) and CPR training courses. This two day event is being held here at camp with or without meals & lodging.

Wilderness First Aid is SOLO's most popular course and it creates a solid foundation in the basics of backcountry medical care. Started as the "Mountain/Woods First Aid" course in 1972, this was the first course of its kind in the United States, and it is the curriculum upon which all other backcountry medicine courses are based.

Here are the details:

WFA - Saturday, December 12th, 2009 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
WFA - Sunday, December 13th, 2009 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
CPR - Saturday, December 12th, 2009 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Options Available Per Person:

Fees and Associated Package Options

$160.00 Two Day Course Participation and all materials necessary

$215.00 Course Fee plus 3 meals Saturday and 2 meals on Sunday

$385.00 Course Fee, Meals & Lodging on Friday & Saturday Nights*.
*includes cabin services, tax and gratuity

This course will be conducted both in the classroom and out in the field so participants should come prepared for the New England weather. Anyone who recreates in the great outdoors can surely benefit from either of these courses because you never know when you or a friend might find themselves in need of assistance and be several miles from the nearest medical facility.

Call or email me today to reserve your spot. Space will be limited, so don't wait too long.

Another sure sign that winter is approaching faster than you think - ice in the river. We had overnight temps in the teens and are holding steady at a balmy 19 degrees at 7:30 this morning. The skies are dusted with a few puffy clouds, but I'm confident the sun will warm us nicely by noon.

Littlest Hunter

The littlest hunter has arrived at Bosebuck. Our grand-daughter, Loralie, will be spending the next three weeks with us and she has hopes that her Papa will be taking her out for her first deer hunt. As you can see, the only thing she is missing is her hunter orange.

New Website Launch

Yes, we finally launched the newly designed website today. Although we have a few kinks to work out, I think it looks awesome. A great big thank you to Dave Kelly of New England for all his hard work and patience with us. Please take a few minutes to browse through and send us your comments, both positive and negative as there is always room for improvement.

We tried to incorporate many items from the former site and update with new photos and text. As with the camp facility itself, we are trying to maintain the historic charm but bring into the current. If you have photos to share of your your time at Bosebuck, both past & present, please send a couple along and we'll try to incorporate them into the new site.

We have overcast skies and light snow falling this morning here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps. The temperature is 31 degrees with a slight breeze from the northeast. If this keeps up I'm going to have to start the snow total chart sooner than later.

Well, here it is November 5th and we have awakened two days in a row with snow on the ground. It didn't hang around long yesterday, but as of 7AM this morning we still have light snow falling. The deer hunters are very happy to have a little snow to track on and were excited when they left camp this morning.

The current temperature is 28 degrees with a slight breeze from the north. I'm hoping to get the weather station back online by the end of next week so you can check the weather conditions here at camp any time.
