Moose Hunts

Moose Hunting in Your Zone! Pricing and Details

We know where to hunt, how to call, when to use scents and when to take to the sky to find your moose! Our hunts are custom engineered to provide you with a truly remarkable hunting experience.

We can custom design your hunt and insist that our hunters become an active role in "Your" hunt! Our moose hunting adventures will take you to the moose and your skill as a marksman is only a small portion of your moose hunt. Once an animal is down, the photos are taken and the high fives have all been given out, the real hunting opportunity begins. Our hunters are required to participate in the process of retrieval, from field dressing to extricating the beast, to the truck or trailer! Of course we will be there gladly helping all the way too!

Moose hunting is one of the most exciting hunts you will ever be involved in and it is your responsibility as a sportsmen or sporting women to be involved in the entire process of the hunt!  We will be there every step of the way, with the gear, hands, guidance and tools necessary for extraction, and so will you!  You may be required to move brush, clear fallen trees and assist in temporary bridge building efforts, you may be asked to simply guide a rope or retrieve water, food or gear from the trucks. There will be many tasks that are required, none of which we would not do ourselves as your team mates in this process!

Our moose hunts are not for the faint at heart hunter, we are known to move a 1000 pound moose, over a mile that can take from 3 hours to 8 hours to get it loaded on the truck and ready to take it to the tagging station.  We use capstan winches, snatch blocks and chain saws to get your moose out. Watch this video clip below for an example of how we bring a moose to the truck.

Every hunt is unique and every situation creates a challenge.. the question is.. are you up for the challenge of the Maine Hunters , Maine Guided Hunts way!  If you are lucky enough to hunt Maine's largest big game animal, why not enjoy a the "real" Maine Hunting experience!
