Grouse and Woodcock Hunting Are At Their Finest In Maine’s North Woods

Fall custom guided hunts in Maine’s well-known Western front are world class for game, highly skilled hunting dogs, and talented hunting guides who know the best places to hunt. Return to the comfortable, friendly Northern Outdoors lodge each day to enjoy the food and handcrafted ales of the Kennebec River Pub & Brewery, and pick your perfect cabin in the lineup of cozy to deluxe cabin accommodations within walking distance of the lodge.

You will discover that some of the finest bird cover in the northeast is what upland hunting in Northern Maine is all about. This area in Maine is renowned for some of the best grouse and woodcock hunting in the United States and we’re pleased to offer you the opportunity to hunt over some of the finest pointing and flushing dogs the area has to offer— or bring your own dog to experience the hunt of their lifetime, and quite possibly—yours too.

What To Expect On Your Bird Hunting Trip

Half and full day trips are available for groups of up to three people. Typically hunts start with an early morning breakfast and conclude at either noon or dark depending on the arrangements you’ve made. Transportation and field lunches are provided during your hunt, as is the expertise of gun dog trainers and Registered Maine Guides Garret and Nellie Booth of Grey’s Outfitting. They’ve been training dogs and running hunts in the area for nearly ten years and their spots are proven, secluded, and productive. Regardless of your experience level, we will suit the day’s hunt to meet your specific needs, interests, and desires.

Hunts for Novice and Seasoned Hunters

If you’re a novice hunter that would like to simply be exposed to the relaxed atmosphere, the gorgeous scenery, as well as watching a well trained dog work his magic with some truly magnificent birds,we have packages available that will show you what grouse hunting in Maine is all about. In the event you’re a seasoned veteran, we will undoubtedly test your skill with challenging terrain and shooting lanes, all the while still keeping in mind the common goal for the day – bird exposure.

Most days yield between twenty five to fifty five points and/or flushes, combined with the area’s definition and character, it makes for true wilderness upland gunning. Come and spend a day or three with us!
