HI, I live on the coast of Maine, near Boothbay harbor. I catch lobsters for a living, and every fall I guide moose hunters - I really love doing that. I learned of this site from the Marlin Big Bore Lev. Action Site. Recently purchased a 1895 G in 45-70. I've made a few posts on this site over the past month or so, but this is my 1st foray onto the "General Discussion" part, hence the tardy intro. It's great to be able to access opinions and experiences from people with the "right attitude" . Much like being in hunting camp. I've never hunted out of Maine, but would really like to experince a Western mountain hunt sometime before my 50 year old bones give up! I enjoy the heck out of my muzzleloaders, too. Thanks to Beartooth for this forum. Guy R.
