Most of my hunting is based out of a two room camp in the northwestern part of the State of Maine. This is a very remote area, not far from the famed Allagash River and within fifty miles from the Quebec border. The camp is accessible by vehicle over a woods hauling road. Some of the prime hunting area near my camp is 4x4 access only. I do have a vehicle that I use to transport hunters with and I ask them to help with the gas.

There are no deer up here to speak of anymore. I sent two paying customers back their deposits this fall (2007) I will no longer be guiding deer hunters for pay until something changes. The only thing we have in abundance now in Northern Maine is moose, bear, clear cuts and coyotes. Grouse hunting is still available. It is too late now to do anything to bring the deer hunting back. Friends who have come for years are welcome back but only to hunt on their own, not for pay. I will still be there to be sure they come back in the evening, to assist with vehicle troubles, etc. The camp is not for rent since I do not have a commercial lease. I'll be there most all fall as usual.

It does well to keep in mind that we are 40 to 50 miles from a store or telephone and 75 miles from the nearest hospital.

I have a two-room back woods camp where you are welcome to stay free if I am your guide. It has a gas stove, refrigerator and lights and sleeps 5 besides myself. Everything is provided except personal items and food. My guide fee of $125.00 per day includes use of the camp for one to five people.

We have a season for grouse that runs concurrently with both moose and deer. We also have coyote and bear hunting. There is now three weeks of moose season in the Northern part of the state. I guide in zones 1 through 5 and the camps is located in zone 2. Moose permits are by lottery only.
