Mason grabs MOMS Fall Brawl

GROVETON — Stark’s “Flyin” Bryan Mason scored the biggest win of his career last Saturday as he dominated the Moms of Lancaster, Lil Joey Generation Next 151 lap, Late Model spectacular at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group in Groveton. Other winners included Brendan Moodie, Brandon Gray, Alexus Call, Vanessa Brown-Savage and Travis Moulton. Over 100 cars competed in the event.

The North Country Ford Late Models got off to a dismal start as it took three tries to complete the first lap. Montreal’s, Steve Cote led the first 19 laps before Bryan Mason snuck underneath him off turn four. 2016 Fall Brawl winner, Bobby Therrien then set sail to run Mason down. There were battles throughout the field as several cautions dotted the event, but none bigger than Therrien cutting down a tire on lap 89. Therrien rejoined the field and started his journey back to the front only to have his day end in the frontstretch wall after contact with Chris Lacey. Another contender emerged from the field, that being Corey Mason. Mason’s car looked like it starred in a demo derby after getting caught up in several early race cautions. Corey Mason settled for third behind Brian Mason and Stephen Donahue.

The balance of the top ten included Steve Cote, Mathieu Kingsbury, Brendan Moodie, Matt Pepin, Mike Bailey, Mike Kenison and Russell Clark. Heat checkers flew for Mike Kenison, Therrien and Cote. Bryan Mason secured a check for $5,000 for the victory and another $3,300 in lap money.

The Caron’s Fabrication Street Stock feature was won in the tech line as the winner of the race, Keith Normand was disqualified for an engine compression violation, handing the win to Brandon Gray of Thetford, Vermont. Stephen Martin was moved up to second position. Brent Ming, Brett Rowell and Reggie Theroux completed the top five. Gray and Normand won their respective heats.

Alexus Call grabbed the win in the A.B. Excavating Daredevil two segment event. Call from Groveton had a fourth and a first for 5 points. One point back was Jesse Dunham, followed by Cooper French, Hunter King and Julian Kenison. Segment winners include Kenison and Call.

The Twisted Tea Angels had their championship event which featured a pair of 20 lap segments. Point leader, Vanessa Brown – Savage captured the first segment, and was a surprise winner of the nightcap as Maine’s, Addie McDaniel cut down a right front tire and hit the wall just before the finish line allowing Brown to sweep the season events in the Angels. Call placed second ahead of Shawna Whitcomb and McDaniel. Vanessa Brown–Savage is the 2017 Twisted Tea Angels champion.

Island Pond’s, Travis Moulton captured the first segment and raced home second in the final race to win the overall Fall Brawl title. 2017 Cyclone champion Chris Ouellette placed second ahead of Nick Gilcris, Jamie Heath and Todd Derrington.

Fall turkey shotgun season starts Oct. 16

CONCORD — New Hampshire's seven-day fall turkey shotgun season begins on Oct. 16 and runs through Oct. 22.
 
Hunters are urged to take note of the correct dates for this season because there was an error in the printed edition of the NH Hunting Digest, which has been corrected in the online version.
 
Purchase of a turkey permit (and a New Hampshire hunting license for those ages 16-67) allows the taking of one male or hen turkey during the fall. Hunters may take only a single turkey, and the bird must be tagged with the "fall" tag.
 
Shooting hours for the fall season begin one-half hour before sunrise and end one-half hour after sunset. The fully feathered, intact turkey must be registered and sealed within 24 hours of the time of taking. See a list of checkstations at: www.huntnh.com/hunting/deer-check-stations.html.
 
Of the 18 Wildlife Management Units in the state, 12 are open to the fall shotgun season (see map at www.wildnh.com/hunting/turkey-season.html). Last year's fall shotgun season resulted in 789 turkeys being taken. This total consisted of 272 adult males, 301 adult hens and 216 immature birds. Of the adult males taken, 17 weighed 20 pounds or more and 27 had beards 10 or more inches in length.
 
The fall shotgun season was extended from five to seven days in 2016 to include two weekend days to provide increased hunting opportunity. New Hampshire also offers a fall archery season for turkey from September 15 to December 15.
