Experience Hunting Trips with Maine’s #1 Hunting Outfitter

We’ve have been hunting in Maine’s North Woods since 1975. Recognized as one of the top record-producing trophy whitetail deer hunting outfitters in the Northeast, our guided and unguided hunts offer unmatched opportunities to test your skills.

Our success has been founded on one very simple principle- a commitment that we would strive to be the best. In order to fulfill that promise, we did something unique, something no other outfitter had done before or has done since – we hired a year-round staff of Professional Maine Master Guides.

Today, the key members of our salaried guide staff have over 100 years of combined guiding experience in Maine. For them, Northern Outdoors is their life, their career, and their dedication is one of the biggest reasons we are so successful. As a group they are true professionals who display pride in their enviable reputation. As individuals they are humble, when they have a bad week they suffer the defeat along with our hunters. We never stop learning and every year we make changes to improve our chances of success. We invite you to experience the camaraderie, skill, and thrill of hunting for Maine’s biggest bucks.

In 1976, Northern Outdoors pioneered whitewater rafting trips in Maine with the first descents of the Kennebec, Penobscot, and Dead Rivers. While we opened our company as Northern Outdoors in that year, we’d actually been hunting for years prior to that as individuals in these same Maine Woods. Over the years, our experienced hunting guides have helped 1000’s of hunters discover the true beauty and excitement of hunting the biggest Trophy Bucks in the Northeast. Our core hunting guides have over 100 years combined of hunting with Northern Outdoors. They are true professionals who know the region and will do everything possible to make your hunting trip a world-class experience.
