We all know that bugs can make a trip to the north country miserable if it is too early in the season. But what is that magic date when it's safe (or tolerable) to head out to Maine or upper MN or Canada? We've been going in the fall mainly to avoid crowds and bugs. Some cold, wet weather made this year's trip nearly as miserable as the bugs for me and my bride. So when do you think it's safe to head out?
