About the Artist
Dave O’ Connor was born to the Maine outdoor life some six-and- a-half decades ago. He spent the first part of his life in the northern Penobscot town of Millinocket and at South Twin Lake. More recently, he has lived in Sherman, Stacyville, and Island Falls in Aroostook County. He’s spent time in all fifty states and the Canadian provinces, hunting, fishing, taking photos, camping and hiking, and sleeping many nights in the back of a pick-up truck.
He has been a regular columnist for the Northwoods Sporting Journal and has written outdoor articles for national, regional and weekly publications, including American Hunter, American Rifleman, Guns & Ammo, Organic Gardening, Boy’s Life, Camping Journal, Outdoor Life, Hunting Dog, Eco-America, North American Hunter, and Snowmobile Weekly.
