Highlights of Maine’s Game Management Plan
In the realm of wildlife management we have come a long way since the days of Aldo Leopold, the American father of enlightened wildlife stewardship.

Increasingly in some cases, there is an excess of wild critters.

Maine author shares tales of Grouse Country
Art Wheaton is the “perfect storm” kind of guy to write a classy, keepsake book about hunting the king of game birds. For a lot of reasons. Art, a son of the late Downeast guide Woodie Wheaton, cut his teeth on grouse and gun dogs. He and his family moved to Forest City ( near Princeton) when Art was 11 years old. From the time he was 15 years old, Art guided landlocked salmon and smallmouth bass anglers from his folks’ sporting camp, Wheaton’s Lodge, and hunted grouse and woodcock every October.
