Wanderstamm Point
 Endewearde  Hunt VIII
Newburg, Maine
October 7 - 10, 2011

The theme of this year's Hunt was Gaston Phoebus' "Livre de Chasse," as was well evident in many of the archery targets, the abundance of hunting horns, and the illumination-perfect weather.  The Count of Foix himself would have felt right at home!

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Hunt, which brought this year's camping season to a grand close.  The event featured an entertaining archery woodswalk, a range of interesting and challenging novelty shoots, a fine dayboard, a bacon and oatmeal breakfast of heroic proportion, and long warm evenings spent about campfires with friends.  Really it was all too perfect, but there's just one thing we might suggest of our hosts. . .

. . . Next year, perhaps it should be Lady Constancia's turn to design the woodswalk?
