11-08-15Hunting partridge with Belle today I saw her looking at this log with great interest. I found this chipmunk just the way you see it. My first guess was an owl. "Off with your Head." http://i134.photobuc...ad 11-08-15.jpg  Update:I contacted NH F&G and here...


Good Day For Hunters. Bad Day For Deer

Posted by Coalman , 08 November 2015 · 396 views

11-07-15 AMThe stars were in line with the crescent moon as Shawn and I exited the vehicle on the way to our deer stands. One could not help but notice how bright Venus, Mars and Jupiter were next to the sliver of our child moon. I asked Shawn if he saw the dark figures silhouetted against the astronomical light in the field. He said yes as three fig...

More Upland Adventures

10-22-15Back from Maine's Great North Woods. Had a great time following the yellow dog around some really nice bird cover in the peak of fall foliage. While there were flushes and lots of missed shots the most memorable bird was our first. I swear Belle knows what she is doing when she quarters along the logging trails. She casts out to the left or r...


A Weekend With Mr Doodle

Posted by Coalman , 12 October 2015 · 319 views

10-10-15I was thinking today that a quarter of October has already gone by. That thought occurred to me in a fertile river bottom chasing Mr. Doodle with Miss Belle. It could of been the rainbow of color from the multiple species of ferns?

09-27-15Checked out a new piece of property yesterday morning on my way up to camp. At first I wondered if I was in the right place seeing the parking area wasn't flattened down from vehicles and there was no dog park dog poop on the trails. A place like this near my house would gets lots of traffic. No sooner as we started down the first straig...
