Bingham Things to Do

  • Maine in the Fall

    Fall is a beautiful time of year in Maine: cold, but not frigid with howling winds like in the depths of winter; the leaves changing on the trees; little if any snow on the ground to wade through. The only problem for us hunters is that the game animals (especially the hares) are spread out with plenty of cover on the ground, so they are harder to...

  • Road Trip to Skowhegan

    Skowhegan has the closest grocery store and Wal-Mart to Bingham. They also have numerous restaurants and a lot of specialty stores you don't often find in small towns. My favorite thing here is the New Balance Factory Store, famous among those of us who enjoy running.

  • Wildlife

    Keep an eye open for wildlife. The day I arrived on my first Maine trip (2001? 2002?) there was a young moose standing in the back yard at our lodge. One of my first trips into the woods, we saw two moose standing in the middle of the rarely used logging road. One winter dad and I found a moose antler shed, and throughout the woods you will see all...

  • Moscow Radar Site

    Moscow (Maine not Russia) is home to what is considered the world's largest radar...the US Air Force's Over the Horizon Backscatter (OTH-B) Radar with its $1.5 billion price tag, the huge radar panels bounced a signal off the ionosphere to detect objects on or over the Atlantic Ocean up to 2,000 miles away. Most amazing is probably the fact the the...

  • Snowshoe hare hunting

    Bob Howe at Pine Grove Lodge loves to hunt for snowshoe hares. While other guides might take the quiet winter season off, he brings in hunters every week. Bring your own beagles or run his large pack of impressive hare chasers! Some hunters come for the day, others (like us) spend an entire week.Maine's small game hunting license will cost you...

  • Trail Kitchen

    No, the Trail Kitchen is not the name of some fancy tourist restaurant in Maine. It is just an accurate description of Bob Howe's lunch setup during his guided hunts. He straps the propane grill and enough food for several hunters on the back of his snowmobile. When lunch time rolls around, he fires up the grill, throws down some meat and cooks up...

  • Maine's best pie!

    Andrea Howe spoils us with desert when we stay at the Pine Grove Lodge. Almost every night at dinner there will be one or two different home made pies. Even on our trail lunches while hunting we will have pie, cookies, or brownies.As Bob said during bear season, "We can't guarantee that they'll get a bear, but we can guarantee that they'll eat...

  • Snowshoes!?

    In northern Maine, the snow can be amazingly deep in March. In many places this year, the base was 3-5 feet! some winters there are repeated freezes and thaws that create thick layers above the base, making for easy snowshoe travel. Other winters (like this year), the snow was soft.. causing us to struggle with almost every step. We learned a...
