We also guide moose hunters with bow or firearms in October. Permit is required. These hunts are held in October on the mid-coast. The season opens the first part of the month and runs to the end for ruffed grouse and woodcock. The limits are three each and the possession limit is double. These hunts are leisurely, we get up at around 7 am then have breakfast. We will then take a short drive to start hunting.
We normally hunt 3 or 4 covers before lunch. After lunch we will hunt 3 or 4 more covers or until you want to get done. Then we return to the lodge for dinner. The mid-coast of Maine has a large number of old farms and some clear cuts. There are many Apple orchards to hunt. These produce good numbers of flushes for Maine Grouse and Woodcock. We have flushing labs or you can bring your own dogs. We can also make combination hunts with Canadian Geese, Sea Ducks, Puddle Ducks, or Bow Hunts for Deer.
