Tamarack and the three bears

Story by Fred Stabbert III
CALLICOON — November 22, 2013 —Long noted as one of the sharpest shooting hunting clubs in Sullivan County, Tamarack Farm Deer Club lived up its reputation – and then some – on Wednesday.
On a brisk, bright day in mid-November, the club put on a morning drive (at one of its secret spots) and the standers did the drivers proud, bagging three bears and a buck.
“Unbelievable, it is a once-in-a-lifetime day,” Dan Hirsch, a club member said.
The fearless hunters had taken three bears totalling 1,366 pounds – including a 660-lb. bruin taken by Kenny Peters of Hortonville.
That bear had 6-inch paws and skull measuring 11.5 inches from ear to ear.
Also on the bear side was Carl Rosenberger of Hortonville, who took a 400-lb. bruin and Brian Wilcox, whose bear weighed 306 lbs.
During the same drive, Ray Day of Springfield, MA. took an eight-pointer which scored 60.5 in the Sullivan County Democrat’s 40th Annual Big Buck Contest.
The bears and buck were taken to the Democrat office in Callicoon for official measuring and soon attracted a crowd of impressed onlookers as they drove down Main St.
And as word spread of the impressive day in the woods, Tamarack also had its fair share of visitors come to see one of the most impressive takes in Sullivan County hunting history.
