Hunting for Inspiration

I spent the past three nights up near the Quebec border with good friends on a combination turkey hunting trip (no luck) and smelt fishing trip (the spring creeks were thick with them). Inevitably I am now exhausted, but I came back with loads of good ideas for Down East articles, future Mike Bowditch stories, and that general uplift in spirits that always follows a visit to the North Woods. Saw lots of very healthy looking moose and deer. Evening grosbeaks, too.
