DEER HUNTING IN MAINE

Northern Maine doesn't have the number of deer that a lot of southern states have. In fact, due to the nature of our rugged terrain, the local licensed hunter success rate is approximately 12%, and that's over the entire season. Generally, this is "big buck" territory. 200+ pound bucks are not all that uncommon. It's also not uncommon to go five or six full days without seeing deer. Big bucks don't get to be big because they hang around with a bunch immature deer.  This is big woods, and you will generally be hunting one to three specific, large deer.   As for our southern/central Maine dear hunts we have an abundance of animals, and they are a lot easier to target. However, this comes with smaller deer and will weigh approximately 130-180 and be most likely a 6 to 10 pt buck. There is much higher success rate in these areas.

THE HUNT

The Hunt: We pre-scout our hunting territory to ensure that you'll have a stand in a good area.  Deer are certainly not behind every tree, or seen every day, or even every week - but hunting from one of our stands gets you well ahead of the curve.  Not everyone has the time to spend in the woods before the season, and our stands are popular with folks who want to increase their odds.

Items to Bring: Orange vest, compass, hunting knife, waterproof outerwear, waterproof boots and socks all according to season. Shotgun /Rifle: anything that you shoot well -- .243 and up recommended, flashlight, lighter, and camera.
