It is the beginning of the new month and I am filling out the Maine Outdoors monthly license sales report for any fishing or hunting licenses that I have sold. Honestly few this time of year, only mine in January. To some it seems like a license is a nuisance and impedes the fun.
I meet lots of folks who think that I have the greatest job in the world. They are right, guiding is a great gig, except they do not understand what my job is really about. Most think that I am fishing or bird hunting or paddling a canoe or watching eagles all of the time. What I am actually doing is helping someone else do those things and be successful at it, safe and comfortable as I can make them.
Thirty-five degrees this morning with the wind in the southwest. It has been very cold since late December with several mornings in the range of twenty below zero. We have had plenty of snow. A good old-fashioned winter here in Maine. Although records were broken for lowest high temperatures and the longest stretch below fifteen degrees. Still the winter skies have been as clear and blue as they always are.
