Thanks! Moose meat is very good, lightly pound to break the fibers marinate and keep it around medium for better cuts.
Cow calling in bulls.

Wanna have tons of fun...???

Get a #10 food can. Punch hole in bottom just enough to get a string through.

Take a long shoe string or rawhide and tie it to a large button.

Pull loose end through the hole in can.

Wet string and with practice you run your hand along string making long or short cow calls. Use a shorter stroke to simulate a grunting bull.

Once you are good at it it is nothing to call a bull into a cut or along a body of water.

Have the leaves started to turn at all? I plan on being at the lake next weekend. Hope the weather is good.

Leaves are just beginning to turn, not a lot of color around the lake yet. Last night at sunset a fog bank slowly rolled in over the islands just off shore. It was lovely. The lake is low but not as low as previous years. We went scavaging for cool rocks last night. We have an antique drawer that held wooden type mounted on the wall and have it filled with little Graham Lake stones, glass, feathers, bones and what not. We found lots of great "skippers" and had a friendly competition to see who could make the most skips. I throw backhanded and got 16 with one big, very flat black stone.

Default well water

we are looking to buy property there, since we have to have well to supply household water, just want to make sure we can get water from well and it is safe to drink. we had well water in Miami, 2-3 years after we move in to the house, the county found some things in the water came from dry cleaning chemical and when we looking to buy property in Lake county, California the listing agent can not tell if we can get water from well or how deep to go down that could be very expensive.

Wink Still looking for a lot

Boonsklyer,

I noticed you were looking for a lot on Graham. I just bought one in Oxbow Pt.. That's a new subdivision on the east side of the lake. It's about 5 miles up rt 179 on the left. There's still a real nice lot left on the west side of the point listed by Travis Coffin of Realty of Maine.

There's some other lots on the north side of the point but they have a lot of wetlands on them.

As for ice fishing, I imagine they do but it's not a real populated lake as you've seen. That's why I like it.

Default Ice Fishing

Hi all,
We go ice fishing on the lake. We're on the Northern part of the lake (Mariaville), and there are a few people who take their trucks out on the lake as well as 1 or 2 icehouses which they drive out. There are some lots for sale also off Graham ,which, most have the sign for the realtor Assist2Sell, in front. I seem to see that realtor a lot in the area, however, I have no personal experience with them. Well, good luck on your endeavor !
