Scout and Hangout - Steam Mill Brook

Wondering how to find hunting spots for this fall? Want to get to know some of your public land? Want to figure out what this "scouting" stuff is all about and see what it looks like in person? Join BHA for a fun, informal way to get ready for the fall hunting season and explore our public lands together. Steam Mill Brook Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is in Walden, about 30 minutes West of St Johnsbury, VT, and about 45min from Montpelier. This 11,000-acre piece of public land is managed by the VT Fish and Wildlife Department for wildlife, habitat and access for hunting and fishing.

We'll meet at the Rock Road parking area on the South East portion of the WMA at 8:30am to go over a map of the area together, and then split into small groups to spend a couple hours scouting some of the terrain and habitat features ahead of the deer and small game hunting seasons. It's a great way to get to know the area, meet some like-minded people, do some scouting ahead of the fall and maybe even learn something about habitat and wildlife or how to narrow-down an entire forest to find good spots to hunt. If you're a long-time hunter it's also a great way to give back and share some of your insight while meeting some new friends. If you're a new hunter it's a great opportunity to put some of what you've read and heard about scouting into action, with the opportunity to ask questions, get feedback and try it out in a supportive setting.

At noon we'll have an informal tailgate lunch (BYO) to compare notes. Bring footwear for off-trail travel, plenty of water and your lunch, and make sure to pack weather-appropriate clothes. If you have Onx or a similar mapping app be sure to download maps of the area ahead of time for offline use. As a bonus, one lucky winner will go home with a OnX membership to help with your own scouting this fall. RSVP is helpful but not necessary, please direct any questions to [email protected]

Bring: water, lunch, footwear and clothing for off-trail travel, weather-appropriate clothing
