It could be worn out but I have my doubts about it.. It is common for them to be laying around those old cuttings.. It is more of as matter of luck to see one in them up here however.. I have seen some does and a lot of scrapes and rubs but no bucks.. They can be crafty when they want to be..

Well no luck today guys and man what a crappy last day. I froze my a$# off after the rain finally soaked through everything. Thats always fun and makes you want to go back for more lol. I did however see a giant doe. She was huge but unfortunately no buck trailing her. Well I guess Ill be bringing out the blackpowder. Wooot. I love that thing although I think you could anchor a boat with it. Its a hefty thing but it shoots goods.

I went out yesterday and after getting all soaked took it easy today.. I did find a place where the deer was traveling a lake shore.. I wished I had taken some time to notice this ealier during the season though.. They used the lake shore to avoid going threw a big swamp with a lot of water in it.. The shoal from all the ice that was pushed up is what they had traveled on. It was a good path with a big buck and a few other deer using it. Other than a lot of scrapes and rubs my deer season is now over for me.. It was great to get out there though with what time I had. I may do another day or 2 of archery over in the Bangor area though..

Ya I work right in Brewer. There are a bunch of deer there in the expanded zones. Actually one of the guys at works cousin got one with a bow dressed 241 lbs either last year or the year before and he could hear the kfc drive thru lol. Bangor has some great spots to. I always wanted to bow hunt but cant afford another addiction ATM. But I may start eventually. Good luck to ya Phil if you do get down there.

Thanks! I have two days off next week in which I will be trying to get out for one of them.. All depends if I end up getting stuck with some meetings or not.. I here you about all the diferent types of hunting though.. That is why I do not muzzle load hunt.. It would be just another add on.. I am hoping to hit Vinal Haven next year seeing how I couldn't do the trip this year and all. I enjoyed my hunting down there last year and hope to get back there for another hunt sometime..

Ya there are tons of deer out there. Most arent huge like the northern deer but I think its because there are so many. There are some bruisers out there though and you can definately fill the freezer with the smaller ones. Im trying to remember where one of my friends goes. They are smaller islands and you need your own boat to get to them but he shot like 5 deer there this year and saw a ton more. All around there is great hunting.
