Will we have any sporting camps in Maine in 25 years? Good question! We’ve gone from more than 300 to about 3 dozen of the traditional sporting camps, where there’s a lodge serving food and cabins for sleeping. Many sporting camps today offer only housekeeping cabins, and then there are new types of camps including Huts and Trails.
The new edition of Wildfire, airing tonight, explores this issue and many more, all focused on the challenges faced by camp owners today and the great experiences still available at our remaining sporting camps.
My co-host James Cote was retained this year to be the lobbyist at the legislature and Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife for the Maine Sporting Camp Association.
And Down East Books just published my book, Maine Sporting Camps. We tell you all about the book and what I learned while writing it.
Each edition of Wildlife is aired on Time Warner cable station 9 on Tuesdays at 7 pm, Thursdays at 6:30 pm, and Sundays at 9:30 am. Each edition will air for two weeks, so you have no excuse for missing it! You can also access the show online anytime at www.vstv.me.
