Stratton • Hunt the western Maine Mountains for grouse and woodcock. With an abundance of birds in the area, early October often provides the most opportunities with both species. It is not uncommon to see birds around the logging roads along the way to or from your hunt. We hunt a variety of cover and your personal pace is always considered. I offer day trips with or without dogs. The Hunt: Our bird hunts are generally day hunts. The length of the hunting day reflects how many days we may have booked. We often meet after breakfast (8-9am) then head out to our first hunt. We usually hunt an area for 45 min to an hour with the first dog. Then we relocate and use a second dog for a short hunt. We continue this cycle having snacks and water when needed. Lunch is usually in the field then we are be back around 4:30 pm leaving some time to relax. We do not want to overwork our dogs or the additional dogs we may work with. Shorter days are easier on the dogs as well as the hunters not used to the terrain we may hunt, so our multiple day hunts may be slightly shorter. Half day hunts are 4 to 5 hours are also available. We most often hunt during the cool of the morning until lunch but afternoon hunts are also an option. Again, this year, we are also teaming up with Tim Pond camps, to offer a more remote hunt for you with less travel to some prime hunting areas. Check out their website for more info about the camps.
Rainy River • Semi-guided hunt on miles of groomed trails over 20,000 acres of private land (with/without your own dogs). We have a diverse population of upland game birds including ruffed grouse, woodcock, sharptail grouse, and prairie chicken. Note from Paul Fuller: "Bird Dogs Afield was here in the fall of 2013 for a grouse hunt and film shooting. I have never seen so many grouse. Our 2nd day we had 49 ruffed grouse flushes and 6 sharptail flushes. In all about five hours of hunting. Our trip to Emo is one of our best broadcast television episodes this fall. This episode will be posted on our YouTube channel. Go to (url removed). Watch the Best Grouse Hunting episode." Hunting parties will stay at our lodge for the duration of there trip. Hunting parties will be responsible for transportation to and from hunting locations also their own meals. Owners will prepare one or two dinners for hunting party if they so desire. We recommend three to five days for a quality hunt.
Maine • Enjoy the fall colors, the sounds of falling leaves, and the fresh scent of the fir and balsam as you stroll along gravel roads hunting ruffed grouse and woodcock. Well trained pointers and retrievers help ensure success and provide hours of entertainment while upland bird hunting. Northern Maine offers some of best covers for grouse and woodcock anywhere since birds face less pressure than even in Southern Maine. Expect 10 to 25 flushes per day depending on weather. Back at camp, be entertained by the sight and sounds of eagles flying in search of their next meal, or a bull moose in hot pursuit of a cow. Duck hunting is also available at this time.
