Charles Bullen Dunn (on the right)and Herbert Washington, a Dunn hunting and fishing companion, stand in front of a log cabin at Ragged Lake, Maine with a hanging whitetail buck.

John Hall and Herbert Washington in a canoe on Ragged Lake, Maine. A trophy Maine whitetail buck is transported by canoe back to camp following a successful hunt at Ragged Lake, Maine in the late summer of 1887. The remote, rugged terrain, trophy brook trout, and abundant game had made Ragged Lake a favorite destination of John Dunn and his hunting companions from the early 1880s to the early 1900s. A trip to this remote lake would require a day or more of travel by horse and canoe from Moosehead Lake.

A Place Apart
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 00:27:01

Maine is a place apart from the mainstream of American society. Beginning early in Maine’s history, settlers, merchants, visitors, artists, and writers brought images of Maine to the rest of the world that shaped the State's economy, identity, and heritage. The history behind the image of Maine remains a vital part of how we and those from away view Maine today.

Charles Bullen Dunn (leaning on his hunting rifle) stands above a Maine whitetail buck on the shores of Ragged Lake, Maine sometime in the summer of 1887. Note the “velvet” on the deer’s fully developed antlers, indicating late summer. Unlike today, in the late 19th century a non-resident hunter could shoot game at any time of the year. Maine catered to non-resident hunters, hoping to boost tourism revenue.

Bioinvasion
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 00:58:03

As human activity silently globalizes our world, our modern day ecology is under onslaught from spreading alien organisms. These plants and animals are capable of moving aggressively into a habitat and monopolizing resources to the detriment of other species. Can scientists help us win the war against this bio-invasion?
