  1. I live in the cities and tried a couple of springs to find some ramps, nothing. The first time I looked at my parents North of Cambridge, they were all over! Now I try to only harvest enough for myself and a few close friends. Growing up, no one i knew harvested wild edibles. I have never harvested fiddleheads so these are on my hit list this spring!
  2. Who else is looking forward to spring and fresh ramps? I know mushrooms get the spot light but I enjoy harvesting a few ramps to add to eggs!
  3. Spinners for stream trout

    Thanks for the advise everyone! Lots for me to take in and work on. Great pictures LHarris!
  4. Reading the above posts made me think about my own hunting and goals. I choose to use a ml without a scope. I harvested my first deer with a ml, a doe, two years ago. Harvesting that doe was the highlight of my season. I had chances this past season to try harvest a deer with my ml. I decided to pass on the chances i had. I guess what I am getting at, as I have matured as a hunter, the hunt itself has become as important as the harvest.
  5. Got my mount back

    Nice bear!
  6. I didn't make the change to using a scope on my ml. I don't mind using open sites and keeping my shots to short range. I really enjoy my time muzzleloader hunting and the usual lack of other hunters.
  7. Spinners for stream trout

    I like the looks of a Joe s fly, are they worth using? Best colors?
  8. What's everyones thoughts on how mn first year of allowing scopes on muzzleloader went?
  9. For the people who shot recurves, what's the best arrow? If it is a wood arrow where do you purchase them?
  10. Anyone fishing the kinni?

    I am ok with small ones, at my stage of trout fishing seeing and catching fish is fun for me!
  11. Spinners for stream trout

    I have heard on the right day, a small rapala works well too. Any ideas on best color?
  12. Spinners for stream trout

    I will be sure to add a castmaster to my box!

    Your thread sounds good! I am putting in for area 13. I think I have 5 points saved up. I should get drawn, If I don't get drawn, I will do no qouta.

    I used a small brown and yellow panther Martian last spring and caught a fish. What other colors and kinds should I get? I purchased a little bigger panther Martian black with yellow dots gold blade, 2 meppe, a roadrunner and 2 small basic spinners.
  15. Anyone fishing the kinni?

    I fished the kinni for the first time last spring, was so fun! I want to make a return trip.
