Northern Outdoors Hunting Guides: What They Do

We offer both guided and unguided hunts. The guides at Northern Outdoors have years of experience hunting the area, and work at 1:6 guide to hunter ratio. We use tree stands as much as possible, and will keep you in active areas during your stay. The guides spend a majority of their time scouting for deer, and setting up or relocating tree stands. During the day they either take hunters to specific areas, or see to it that each hunter knows exactly where to go. Their primary responsibility is to do all they can do to ensure a successful hunt. Our guides do not hunt while guiding.

Hunters who choose a guided hunting package enjoy the advantage of having their scouting done in advance, and having tree stands already in place in productive spots. On unguided hunts, we will recommend areas to hunt and try to be helpful, but you are on your own for the week while in the field.

Greg Caruso

Greg Caruso grew up hunting in his hometown area of Millinocket, Maine, and began at Northern Outdoors in 1992 as a whitewater rafting guide. His love for the area and desire to be part of the year round team led him to getting his hunting guides license in 2001, and he has been guiding hunts here ever since.
