Unfortunatly I was unable to assist this year in the eider count and
banding the state does. However I have heard from Brad Allen the waterfowl biologist who organizes the outing.
Numbers are up! Birds numbers have been down the last 2 years. The crew counted 500 nests, captured and banded
128 hen eiders. They also recaptured 60 hen eiders, and observed 2 broods. Hopefully next year I will be reporting
these numbers first hand.

"B" season opened this morning at 4:50 and ended for me
personally at 6:30. 25lbs 3ozs Maine wild turkey. Nice and heavy, many other big toms are being taken in my area.
If you are still looking for a guided turkey hunt for 2008 in Maine look no further. 3 other Toms where with my big
boy. One perticular longbeard refuse to cooperate today so he could be yours.
