    Default Deer Hunting Starts Tomorrow!

    Maine's deer season gets underway tomorrow, October 31st. If you're going into any wooded area, assume there are hunters present and wear at least one article of hunter orange. A hat and a vest is even better.

    And hunters have as much right as geocachers to be in the woods so avoid confrontations and given them their space. I hunt but I'm also aware that there's a small percentage of deer hunters that are inconsiderate goobers that think getting a buck is more important then life itself. Avoiding any type of contact with those "hunters" is a good idea!

    Be safe, have fun, it will be done the second Saturday in December, the official end of muzzleloading.

    I'm aware that there are certain areas in the state, mainly the Albion area, where there are exempt zones where rules from the wild wild west dominate. I believe TRF's family is responsible for making sure law and order is strictly enforced within these guidelines.

    I think they go something like this. Rule 1: shoot until the gun is empty! Rule 2 :Shoot one deer for each finger on your left hand! Rule 3: Game wardens make for a tasty stew!

    That's just totally irresponsible, unethical, and immoral!!!

    That's why I do my hunting at night when there's less people like that in the woods... sheesh...
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Friends of mine in Rumford used to call it "Grocery Shopping".

    Of course, they actually needed the food. I've seen more than one warden drop a deer off at a home that could use it.

    I've been bird hunting / geocaching for a few days this fall. I like the combination. However, when I have that beer stuff at Flatlanders in Greenville, my GPS looks funny. I keep trying though!!!

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Night hunting is safer too. You can assume that if it's holding a flashlight, it's not a deer! Don't shoot it.
