Bob Duchesne’s Wild Maine: Bow Hunting + Brook Trout [AUDIO]

Hemera Technologies

We’re talking with John Hunt of the Maine Bowhunters Association as well as Mary Gallagher, who fills us in on sea-run brook trout. Did you even know there was such a thing? After that, we’re off to Grand Land Stream to help Weatherby’s sporting lodge open for another season.

Part 1: John Hunt, the president of the Maine Bowhunters Association, tells us about his group, which — as its name suggest — promotes bow hunting in the state. The group is also having its annual banquet next weekend at Jeff’s Catering in Brewer.
