Well, Sandy came through last night with very strong winds but the skies have cleared (we actually have some patches of blue) now and she left us with a little rain which should help bring the water level up in the lake.  We only lost a couple of spruce trees, one of which conveniently fell right onto the wood pile, and no damage.  How great is that?  Mike and Chad will chop that up and set it aside for the New Year's Eve bonfire.  Have you made your reservation yet?

Deer season is here already with opening day yesterday for non- residents.  We do have a few openings for next week and Thanksgiving week if you find you now have the time to get in a little hunting.  The extended forecast is calling for cooling weather and perhaps some light snow to help track that big buck.

Five guys with dogs plus a lot of miles equals one great day of hunting.  Allen, Kyle, Junior, Mike and Dallas returned to camp tired but happy with their of grouse on Thursday.  The long drive from Ohio was well worth it.  See you all next year.

Deer season is right around the corner believe it or not with opening day for Maine residents this Saturday, October 27th.  We still have some openings if you haven't reserved your cabin just yet, give me a call and we can discuss your options.

Snow on the Pumpkins

That's right, we skipped right over the frost and went straight to snow.  This was the scene here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps this morning at 7AM.  Perhaps this bodes well for deer season and the upcoming snowmobile season.  Let's keep our fingers crossed.

This is a very good friend of ours who took a NH bear last week and stopped by show us his successful hunt.  Good job Kirk!

The fishing season closed on September 30th for our fishery and although conditions could have been better, the lack of rain held river levels lower than normal, we finished on a good note.  We even had a couple owners of other fishing camps visit Bosebuck for fishing in the western mountains of Maine.  After hours of fishing in his "full on fish mode" Duncan hauled in his personal best salmon in this fishery to date.

Doug and his group of lake fishermen arrived last week for their annual contest for the largest fish and Mike (not my Mike) walked away with the title this year.  A 20 1/4" salmon, so his name will go on the trophy and Doug will have to wait another year.  The six of them caught over 100 fish here on Aziscohos Lake (all returned except one that was served at breakfast) in three days.  Calling all fishermen to put Bosebuck and Aziscohos Lake on their "to do" list for next spring or fall.  Don't wait to call or it may be too late.

So here we are at bird season and Mike & Sue have returned from Virginia for another week of hunting. Jimmy and his three boy were here for opening day and they returned home with grouse, a woodcock and even a couple of rabbits.

Mike is busy cleaning up his bear sites and has been seeing lots of birds, rabbits and deer too.  Speaking of which, have you made your reservation for deer season yet?  If not, call now before our cabins are full and you're left out in the cold.
