For fans of Maine deer!

 This comes from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife today!  Check it out, sounds like two fun ways to get involved! 

1.  Join us for an informative virtual presentation by Maine's White-tailed Deer Biologist Nathan Bieber as he discusses the history of deer management, the status of Maine's deer herd, and the current strategies used to manage deer in Maine.

Streaming live on YouTube Tuesday, July 27 at 6pm. The presentation will be recorded and available at the same link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jr_-ksS5xxw

 

2.  Enjoy watching deer?

Become a citizen scientist for the Maine Deer Spy project! Volunteers are needed across the state and everyone can participate.

 

Participating is easy! When you see deer between August 1 and September 30,  all you need to do is make simple observations:

  • Location
  • Date and time
  • The number of does (adult female deer with no antlers), bucks (deer with antlers), and/or fawns (young deer).

You can submit data online or by postal mail. Data recording instructions and examples of how to correctly record data are available online at mefishwildlife.com/deerspy

For those who have missed the Bigfoot in Maine library talks...

 Here are the links to the virtual talks I've given recently about my book, Bigfoot in Maine, in case you missed the chance to attend them.

Enjoy!!

I talked to librarian Jon Knepp at the Thompson Free Library in Dover-Foxcroft last night, here is the video:   https://youtu.be/21Jo0VUj-mo

And back on Thursday, June 10, I spoke to librarian Andrea Kazilionis at the Falmouth Memorial Library.  That video conversation is located here:

They've all been great conversations so far, with excellent questions from the moderators and the audience.

Signed copies of the book are still available at the Green Hand Bookshop, and online here: https://greenhandbookshop.com/products/preorder-bigfoot-in-maine-by-michelle-souliere-signed

A little podcast interview about Bigfoot in Maine

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to put this link out there -- I did an interview with an author podcast which my publisher puts out, and it was really fun.  Hope you enjoy listening!

https://authorconversations.podbean.com/e/bigfoot-in-maine/

Don't worry, if you haven't read the book yet, there aren't any spoilers, we were really careful about that.  Just some interesting conversation, and a good Q & A session!

If you'd like to buy a signed copy of the book from me, you can do it through my website here:

Hope you're all having a great week!

It's here! BIGFOOT in Maine - the book! Signed copies available

 

Wow.  I never would have thought, back in October 2005 when I did my first blog post about the idea of Bigfoot in Maine, that someday I would write a whole book about it.  

All these years later, it seems wild that this book exists.  Big thanks to all the folks who helped me along the path!  I couldn't have done it alone.  

If you are wondering, "What the heck do you mean, there are Bigfoot in Maine?!" or if you have friends or family who have had their own inexplicable encounters, then this book will give you some good reading.

 You can buy a signed copy directly from me (no charge for that extra bit of commemorative ink) here:

https://greenhandbookshop.com/products/preorder-bigfoot-in-maine-by-michelle-souliere-signed

And with any luck, someday in the future, there will be a volume two to follow it up, because the story of Bigfoot in Maine is a living, evolving history.

Be well, everyone, and stay safe!

Call for info: old 1970s WBZ audio?

Here's a real shot-in-the-dark -- does anyone know someone who collects audio of old WBZ shows? I'm looking for some of Larry Glick's midnight radio shows from around 1971.  Please email me at michelle.souliere@gmail.com if you think you can help!  Thanks, all!
