Interesting newsletter from Bradford Camps

Linda and I love Bradford Camps in Maine’s great north woods, and we eagerly await their annual newsletter, which arrived today.

From news about its very successful bear hunting season (15 bears taken by 19 hunters) to news about the successful restoration of Arctic Char in Big Reed Pond, to their fascinating video of their harvest of 12 tons of ice, to their story about jellyfish and their list of the wonderful events scheduled there this summer (including a birding adventure with my friend Ron Joseph), this is a great newsletter.
You can read the newsletter here.

About George Smith

George stepped down at the end of 2010 after 18 years as the executive director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine to write full time. He writes a weekly editorial page column in the Kennebec Journal and Waterville Morning Sentinel, a weekly travel column in those same newspapers (with his wife Linda), monthly columns in The Maine Sportsman magazine, two outdoor news blogs (one on his website,, and one on the website of the Bangor Daily News), and special columns for many publications and newsletters. Islandport Press published a book of George's favorite columns, "A Life Lived Outdoors" in 2014. In 2014, George also won a Maine Press Association award for writing the state's bet sports blog. In 2016, Down East Books published George's book, Maine Sporting Camps, and Islandport Press published George and his wife Linda's travel book, Take It From ME, about their favorite Maine inns and restaurants.
