Trick or Treat?

Well I guess that depends on your point of view. If you like to hunt or snowmobile this white stuff here at camp is a real treat. However, for those of you who prefer the warmer temps it's a trick.

Yes, we have a couple inches of snow on the ground with light snow falling at a current temp of 30 degrees. All you sled heads don't load up yet, this is just a reminder to tune those sleds up and prepare for the winter ahead.

I registered a nice buck yesterday on opening day, the first of 2010. Nice way to start the season off don't you think?

It's opening day of deer season for Maine residents and the hunting god has graced us with a little light snow. Good luck to all you hunters! Remember we are a game registration station for deer and will be happy to weigh your trophy on our certified scale. The tagging station is open daily from 7AM to 7PM.

The current temperature is 32 degrees and the extended forecast for all next week is overnight temps in the 20's with the highs during the day of mid-forties. It's not too late to call and make your reservation for a week of deer hunting at Bosebuck. You'll return to camp to a nice warm cabin and delicious home cooked meal not to mention a hearty breakfast to start the day.

Once Upon a Memory (Growing Up at Bosebuck) a must have for your library collection. Written by Polly Ann Hewey Johnston, granddaughter of the original owner, Perley Flint, recalls life at camp long before today's modern conveniences. Each book includes a Bosebuck photo bookmark, is signed by the author and numbered. Remember it's never to early to start your Christmas shopping so give me a call and I'll ship to you.
Yesterday when I looked out across the lake I saw snow capped mountains. Today all I see are overcast skies and fog hiding those mountain views. Gotta love this New England weather.

First snow of the 2010/2011 Season

Yes, this is the scene here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps this morning. The temperature is 30 degrees and we have light snow falling. I don't think we need to break out the shovels just yet, but it is certainly a little taste of what is yet to come. Before you know it, the sleds will be piling up in the parking lot with their riders looking for a good meal and a warm spot by the wood stove.

Our bird hunters have had some of the best grouse and woodcock hunting in years. Mother nature provided the perfect conditions this spring and summer with little rain and warm temps. They are now enjoying the result of those conditions with successful hunts.

If you haven't made your reservation for deer hunting yet, you should call soon. Llast year's mild winter and this year's conditions have given the deer the habitat they needed to thrive. Mike has seen lots of young deer in his travels through the back country this fall. He, of course, is not letting me in on his favorite hunting ground, but there is plenty here for everyone.

The beautiful colors of Fall arrived and are already fading here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps. We have experienced several frosts which have hastened the foliage along. The bird hunters are here and although opening day was a washout with torrential rain and strong wind, the days that have followed have been absolutely gorgeous, just like today. All our hunters returned to camp yesterday with grouse in hand and a hearty appetite.

Remember that Bosebuck Mountain Camps is a deer, bear and moose State of Maine game inspection station and our scale has been certified. We are available to tag your harvest daily from 7AM to 7PM.

Mike is out working on the new section of the snowmobile trail which should eliminate most of the trail on Parmachenee Road north of camp. It should be ready for this season, so even if logging operations are still underway we won't be dealing with 3 miles of mud.
