Fire Island & Great South Bay Fishing Forecast September 30th, 1st & 2nd, w/ Captain Al Lorenzetti and a tribute to Bob Antolini
Hunter's Garden Preserve in Northampton, NY is a great place to hunt. Membership cost is very reasonable and the facilities and property are top notch. Brian Klug the proprietor stays on top of it all and makes sure your hunt will be a memorable one.
Rich Santos, his dog Jax and I hunt the property regularly for pheasants and chuckar partridge. Its awesome to see a good dog work the fields and flush the birds.
There are also other types of shooting venues at the club such as sporting clays and deer and duck hunting.
Take a look at their website at www.huntersgardenpreserve.com and see what they have to offer.

I had a chance to test ride a new Maratime 23 foot center console today and I was truly impressed. This boat is laid out with lots of thought by the manufacturer. Fit and finish is excellent with tons of storage and ease of access to all components. A great feature is the bunk area under the console. It is the size of a queen size bed and perfect for a young family to overnight. The center of the bunk can be removed for access to storage and a porta- pottie. It has a live well and two fish boxed forward that drain directly through the hull. It is powered very well with a 200 hp Yamaha and will attain speeds of over 45 mph. It is priced very reasonably and would be a great boat to use in the Fire Island area.
It will be available to view and for test rides at the Tobay Boat Show next week as well as at Suffolk Marine every day. There is also a 21 foot version which is also a great boat.
