World Class Game, Highly Skilled Dogs, & Professional Registered Maine Guides

Early morning hours, crisp autumn air, and the magic stop of a bell in some of the finest bird cover in the northeast is what upland hunting in Northern Maine is all about. The Kennebec Valley region of Maine is renowned for some of the best grouse and woodcock hunting in the United States and through our partnership with Grey’s Outfitters we’re pleased to offer you the opportunity to hunt over some of the finest pointing and flushing dogs the northeast has to offer— or bring your own dog to experience the hunt of their lifetime, and quite possibly—yours too.

What To Expect On A Guided Bird Hunting Trip: Half Or Full Day Hunts

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. 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!
