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.
Stratton • Moose are one of the largest game animals in America that you may get a chance to hunt. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience to take a moose. I have been guiding moose hunts since '99. Including hunts myself, I have helped harvest 39 moose in that time. In June 2012, I finished 2nd in the World (Maine) Invitatioal Moose Calling Championship and tried again in 2015 for a 3rd place finish. Generally, we will spend time calling and searching for moose in cuts. The moose will be looking for love, food, drink and a place to rest. We may walk a short distance or we may hunt close to the vehicles, the choice is yours. If you would like a more traditional hunt, be advised that a moose harvested deep in the forest takes a lot of time and effort to retrieve. We will often hunt in areas we can still get a jeep or 4 wheeler in to assist with retrieval. I guide in WMDs 7, 8, 4 & 1 regularly and have guided other WMDs as well. Please note the Maine moose hunt is a lottery hunt. I may also have information regarding lodge permits. This hunt includes meals, lodging, guide and PERMIT.
Stratton • In 2016 I secured my first lease of 9000 acres and set 10 bait sites. We had a successful season with all 5 of my hunters seeing bear. Two of them harvested and 1 miss while the others only saw sows with cubs. I'm now leasing around 17500a with 15-17 bait sites. Last year (2022) had its challenges with tons of mast for the bears, but after talking with others in the area, we actually did pretty good! I spoke with one guy who said they had 3 of 10 hunters successful and only 2 others even saw bear. Knowing the challenge, my goal was 3 bear for the 6 hunters. With 4 of the 6 having opportunities, we managed 2 harvested, 1 clean miss and 1 wounded, but unfortunately 2 never saw bear. Pretty good considering. Our hunters will have 2 bait sites to hunt. You have your choice of a tree stand or blind at 2 sites. Some sites may have a blind and a stand at them this year. Generally, people do a treestand on one and a ground blind at the other. I will generally take just 3 hunter a week.
