Most of the 6 inches of snow we received last Wednesday has disappeared and left mud in it's place.  We still have a little ice in the river and a small section floating in the lake in front of camp.  The forecast for this week is a bit warmer than normal (highs in the 40's, but overnight lows are expected to fall below freezing.  Perhaps the ground will freeze and give us a good base for the upcoming snowmobile season.

Muzzle loader for deer will open tomorrow to complete the 2011 deer hunting season ob December 10th.  We have registered 28 deer to date and hope to tag a few more in this final week.

Don't forget we have Gift Certificates in any amount for that hard to buy for person on your Christmas list.  You can stuff in their stocking or wrap in a big box to keep them guessing until the 25th.

I was going to begin this post stating that I awoke to 10.6 degrees and an iced over river except once I thought it over I realized that it was pitch black this morning when I came down to lodge at 4:30AM to start breakfast.  Since deer season is well underway and the hunters like to hit the woods early, breakfast begins at 5AM.  Now that I have my timeline re-established, I can tell you that when the sun finally came over the mountain, I could see the iced over river and ice in the lake.  As I write this post at 8:16AM the temp has risen to 15 degrees and there is not a cloud to be found in the sky.  It is definitely a frosty morning with snow in the forecast!  I guess I will need to start this year's snow total page if the weather forecast is correct.

I have to say congratulations to Paul Vozzella who took home his first buck and I'm sure he and his Dad, Phil have retold the story at least a hundred times already.  See you next year!

Bosebuck Mountain Camps is a Maine IF&W game registration station and we have already tagged 22 deer this season with the largest being a 10 pointer, weighing in at 271 pounds.

As you can see from today's webcam photos, the dock, boathouse and boats have been stored for the winter.  Mike's chore list for winter preparation is well underway and everyone is busy making it happen.  Last week we had snow on the ground and cold temps usual for November in Maine.  Today is a different story with a current temp of 63 degrees here at camp as I write this post.  That's just crazy! 

We have a full camp next week for deer hunting with a mix of returning guests and new visitors alike looking for some new territory to hunt.  Best of luck to one and all.

All you sledheads do not despair, Friday's forecast is calling for colder temps and light snow.
