  • Hunting Camp Firearms

    On one deer/bear trip in the Adirondacks our Camp group would be carrying - Winchester 94 in .32spl, 12ga, Mi garand and he packed a .44mag - he could hardly climb a hill, 2X 30-06, 7mm Rem Mag (me) We were hunting Raquette Lake by boat's and down the Clarion River off the Lake. Camp was a 4 season, 4 bedroom, log home right on the Lake - really ruffing it, spent a week there.

    I have kayaked and canoed both the Clarion and Raquette River. The Raquette has some class 4 in the spring. I go on flat water.

    Cool , did you get a buck? When was the last time you hunted the Adirondacks?

      I know I've mentioned this here before, but one of the finest meals I've ever had was after a rainy, cold day of canoeing on Racquette. As we paddled in, totally bushed, we noticed that somebody in one of the camps was frying fish and baking bread. The smell almost drove us mad. We'd planned on just grabbing a quick McDonald's supper when we went back down through Old Forge, but scrapped that idea in a hurry. Instead, when we got into town, we found a place that served fried haddock and NE clam chowder. It was toasty warm in there, lots of friendly folk at the tables around us, and one heck of a meal. If I had to make a list of the Top Ten days of my life, that might be on it. If we'd actually caught any fish that day, and not dumped one of the canoes, it definitely would be.

        I get my Lifetime License and when we get a few of the old group together I go.
