Every deer hunter has dreamed of owning their own hunting camp. Most camps or hunting cabins are usually weathered, or shifted, or rotted. Not to worry though, the Maine Cabin Masters can turn a teardown into an almost-new deer camp palace in just a few months. We hash out the details of finding and rebuilding a deer cabin with Dixie and Jedi, (aka Matt Dix and Jared Baker of the show Maine Cabin Masters. And of course, we talk about Matt and Jared’s Maine deer hunting adventures.
