I hit one of my favorite outdoor retail stores earlier this week – Kittery Trading Post in Kittery, ME. This fine Southern Maine retailer has been serving the needs of New England’s outdoor sports enthusiasts for over 75 years and they’re still going strong today.
Kittery Trading Post, otherwise known as KTP, has something for everyone. When I say they’ve got it all, they’ve got it all. Hunting gear, guns, ammo, reloading supplies, archery gear and accessories, camping gear, casual clothing, shoes & boots, skis and winter weather apparel, fishing gear, and the list goes on. KTP has a department to serve anything you’re looking to do outdoors and these guys definitely have it all.
I can spend hours poking around KTP, and on this particular day I did just that. I enjoyed checking out the latest bows from the many manufacturers that KTP carries. Always appreciated by this lefty archer is that there are several different left-handed bows always in stock at KTP. I perused the gun inventory, both new and used, and fantasized about the autoloading shotgun that I will someday acquire. I spent a good amount of time in the fishing section checking out all the newest fly fishing gear and I also looked at their vast array of knives, turkey calls, tree stands and ammunition.
Any visit to KTP is a success as it stimulates the senses with many thoughts of outdoor adventure. On this particular day I’m proud to say that I kept my expense in check and I only purchased four items: A Quaker Boy box turkey call, a pack of Thingamamobber strike indicators, a Simms wader bag and a Silva Huntsman compass.
If you are ever driving through Southern Maine, a visit to KTP is a definite must-stop destination. Enjoy!
