I will not be there Saturday.

Next weekend is Albion Day.

The following weekend is the board meeting. I will have work I plan on doing then, weather permitting.

It didn't make your desk yet? I will have to check with my minions to see what happened. They will probably just blame me somehow..

And, I think it's the beginning of deer hunting season - best to wear orange.

Is the orange to ward away the Moose Trout?

Blaze Orange the fall fashion color in Pennsylvania

I want to see a picture of a moose trout!  Could it become our mascot?

They are too rare. The locals net them easily with a moose call. They jump right in the net. I have never had one but hear they taste like chicken..

They are too rare.

Then you need to cook them more.

Perhaps we need to get Dana, the premier moose caller involved.  I'll wager he can come up with a plausible way to catch a moose trout. 

Come to think of it, perhaps hiding in the bushes near the Trout Brook bridge site and making a noise like a carrot will attract them.... or is that how one attracts snipe?

... making a noise like a carrot ...

Pray tell what sound doth a carrot make in the wilds of Maine?

I think that would only attract rabbits. ::)

Alex,

Go out into the wilds of any Maine forest.  Around Trout Brook near the ROW is a great place to try this wonderful outdoor experience.  The forest around the Porcupine Palace near TOM is another good place to try this.  Very early in the morning or late most evenings is the best time as the usual forest sounds have either not started, or have begun to still. 

Make yourself comfortable.  Sitting on the ground leaning back on a large tree is a good position to take.  Be very, very still.  Allow your breathing to slow so you can almost hear your own heart beating.  Listen intently and if you are very quiet, an the forest animals have quieted for the day, and just before the tree frogs and crickets begin is the time your are seeking. 

There is just a moment or two between the quiet of the breezes in the trees and the noise of the squirrels and birds as ceased and just before the evening noises of the night creatures, you can hear the call of the wild Maine carrot. 

Of course, there is also the possibly that the notorious moose trout has already grazed that area and consumed the local carrots.  Then you either have to find another location or wait until next spring when they again sprout.
