Seven 'tails in three days of hunting. All definitely or probably does.

No beechnuts, but feeding sign under beeches. A couple of sporadic rubs, no scrapes.

Back at it next weekend with...

I'm headed to camp on Thursday for a full day of stomping around Friday and then I get to take the rifle for a couple of long walks on the weekend. Up the mountain and down the mountain, walk walk...

Yeah, this here. A decent netted bag (I use the one my yakima canoe pads came in) and I'd skip the paracord only because it soaks up water like a sponge and stretches. I've largely switched out all...

I was out on opening day, but probably spent more time hiking than hunting. I had one encounter with a doe 1/2 hour after sunset as I was making my out of the woods. Other than that, very green,...

There is no bias in a wilderness designation preventing someone from fishing an Adirondack pond. There are hundreds of accessible fishing locations.

Why don't people sue for not being able to...

Filter and tablets. Mostly tablets when I'm by myself. I carry two water containers and alternate so that the one I just finished gets an hour or two of treatment time. I don't worry about viruses...

McMartin's "Little Great Range" hike?

Has this been done, attempted, or is it a waste of time with no official trail (e.g., choked with conifers, witchhobble, or otherwise too brutal to attempt).

I was thinking of attempting a route...

I was unlucky enough to witness a rabbit caught by a hawk in a field behind my house. The rabbit was screaming, the hawk was trying to finish it off on the ground, and then a murder of crows showed...

No fireworks two weekends ago, but the parking lot was packed to the gills. I got the 2nd to last spot and then three more cars pulled in within the next 10 minutes. Sunday was peaceful and by...

Does she hang her legs over the gunnels and put her feet in the water while you're paddling like mine does?

There goes all my momentum. Again.

Trails around the Cedar Lakes were in good shape this weekend. A little wet in spots from last week's rains, but nothing serious.

All of the tent sites around Cedar are pretty solid. The one...

I wouldn't read too much into those records from 1870s through 90s. There were only a couple of observations (n) compared to the more recent data set.

Silver Lakes Wilderness - Becker Hill?

I ran across the name of a hill that I haven't found on any topos or maps that I have access to. It's somewhere in the vicinity of Whitehouse, but it's probably a nickname used for a location. It...
