Club Members on a
Recently 10 club members travel to Bingham, Me.which is about 50 miles
northwest of Waterville, Me., exit 133 from I -95, for a 2 day Hare Hunt, at
the Pine Grove Lodge, 4 season outfitters, operated by Bob Howe, Master
Maine guide. As we started out on Thursday, and after arriving, all the
ground was free of snow. Our members were rubbing their hands, as those
Hares are white, and with the brown ground, Fiesta time.
But the whole
scene changed, Friday morning of the first hunt, bang, 4- 6 inches of snow,
great for the dogs, great for the hares, but bad for the hunters. Low
hanging evergreen branches from the snow, and the white Hares made hunting
very difficult. Now you see them, and now you don't. Matt Halleron did
scored the first day, with other hunters missing their mark. On the second
morning, with it warming up a bit. The dogs were running great as well as
the Hares. Still, very difficult to spot, raise your gun, and try to score.
Pat Enright and Dick Palmer did get Hares, but alot of misses. Members
traveling on this Hare hunt was Shawn Spears, Pat Enright, Jim Gifford, Dave
Fromerth, Matt Halleron, Dave Rorrio, Bill Spears, Dick Palmer, Kevin Segar,
and Bruce Macaro.
If anyone is thinking about a Hare Hunt, we must
recommend Pine Grove Lodge. Great location,
personnel who run this are fantastic, whether its hunting Hare, deer, moose,
fishing, white water stuff, check them out. They had provided our club
raffle in the past with a certificate for a one day Hare hunt, and now a
limited edition of a drawing of beagles and Hares for our club raffle.
Check them out, this is our fourth time there, great, relaxing, and enjoying
everyone laid back attitude.
Oh Ye, the food is great too.
