Rabid Writing Turns 100

This March 2016, I publish my 100th article. My first article, Bear Hunt Taken to the Extreme, was published in July of 2008 and since that time I have enjoyed writing almost monthly for The Maine Sportsman, first as a writer for their monthly specialty columns, then moving into a permanent contributing writer for the magazine's monthly Washington County and Wildlife Quiz columns.

In November of 2014, I decided to also begin writing for the Sportsman Alliance of Maine newsletter and have been a monthly contributor since that time, crafting articles on a wide variety of subjects.

I contribute much of my writing success to starting this blog in February of 2008. This platform allowed me a chance to frequently post articles and have them commented on by the general public. This provided me with the motivation to keep writing and eventually come to thoroughly enjoy writing as a fun and relaxing hobby. My very first blog article, Hunting the Snowshoe Hare, is one that I still frequently re-read to see just how far my writing style has grown in the past seven years.

I maintain a full directory of all of my published works here so that others may have a chance to see my previous article and perhaps learn something new that will allow them success in the woods, learn about a new hiking of camping spot or find a new great place to fish.

Thanks to everyone for following along, I am looking forward to writing the next 100!

    1. Hi Sue,

      Glad to see are thinking of planning an Allagash trip! Jealous, something that has been on my bucket list for YEARS. I don't do any guided trips down the Allagash but there are TONS of guides that certainly would be able to assist you. I have heard that has a good reputation for hosting a quality trip. Well whoever you pick, be safe and HAVE FUN, running the Allagash is one of those "traditional" Maine trips that evry true MAINAH simply MUST take at some point in their lives!


Thanks for posting a comment. Your thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated!
