Avid hunters prepare: the Shin Pond area offers excellent hunting for both big and small game! If you’re here for bear come in September through November. Bird hunters hold off until October when Partridge are abundant. Here for the elusive moose? The Moose hunt is one week in October and hunters are drawn by lottery, while deer hunting is the month of November.
Relax by the campfire and listen for the call of the loons, hike to Sawtelle Deadwater for an excellent chance of a moose sighting, hike to the summit of Mt. Chase, or fish Lake Matagamon, home to the Matagamon Boy Scout Base, an adventure camp for scouts worldwide.
