Blackpowder Hunters – It’s Your Time!
For those with a bonus tag to fill, and for those yet to harvest a deer, Maine’s muzzleloader season is a godsend – snow on the ground, fewer hunters in the woods, and the knowledge that you are taking a step back in time with your firearm.
For all muzzleloader hunters, the December, 2020 issue of The Maine Sportsman has you covered, from Steve Carpenteri’s column on modern innovations in the sport, to contributions from Bill Graves (“smoke pole” techniques in The County), Val Marquez (muzzleloading in Southern Maine) and William Clunie (blackpowder tactics in the Western Maine Mountains).
The other upcoming activity on folks’ minds is snowmobiling. This issue of The Maine Sportsman features “Ride Sensibly, Ride Safe,” focusing on sensible, accident-free riding.
And what about ice fishing? In some parts of the state, it’s permitted whenever safe ice forms, while northern areas have to wait for January 1st. We cover advances in the sport in a piece titled “Technology Impacts Maine Ice Fishing.”
And there’s more:
- First-ever “Biggest Bears” photo gallery;
- Trophy photos (trout, grouse, wild turkeys and deer);
- A reader’s story about a huge whitetail deer, and
- Stories from a former Warden and a former Ranger
