Maine Hiking Guides
The state of Maine has some great adventure opportunities. First, the hiking. There are over thirty-three state parks and well over half of these have well maintained trails for you to enjoy. The Rockland/Camden area has 30 miles of trails and all of the individual trails lead to either Mt.Megunticook (1,380') or Mt.Battie (800'). One of the most grueling and popular trails is the trek to the summit of West Peak in the Bigelow Mountain Range. The summit of West Peak is 4,150 feet.
Maine Fishing Guides
There are over 6,000 lakes and ponds and 5,5000 miles of coast in the state of Maine. If you are looking for brook trout fishing, then Maine is the place for you as it has more brook trout waters than the rest of the eastern range states combined. There are great saltwater and freshwater opportunities in the state. Some great fishing has been done in Perkins Cove. An Atlantic cod coming in at 80 lbs, a Bluefin Tuna weighing 1,155 lbs and a 46 lbs White Hake have all been caught in this sea water. Nothing like a few Maine fishing records to inspire the outfitter in you.
Maine Hunting Guides
The turkey was once in great decline, but not the opposite is true. Due to the increasing numbers of turkey in the state, permits are now available over the counter, rather than through the older lottery process. Turkey hunting is considered the safest style of hunting, and the statistics are there to back up this claim. There are only 2.95 injuries for every 100,000 hunters.
It is permitted to hunt bear in the state of Maine. You will need a special permit for bear along with your regular Maine hunting license. Hunters are not allowed to use more than 6 dogs to hunt one bear and no dogs must be used during the deer open firearm season. It is important to note that if you are a non-resident, you will not be permitted to use dogs in a hunt, unless you are working with a Maine guide. Some of the biggest bears ever caught in the state were in Strong, Mapleton and Patten. The Black Bear hunted in Patten weighed a staggering 680 lbs.
As for places to hunt Bucks and Doe, we recommend Lower Enchanted Township, Seboomook Township and Cape Elizabeth. All of these places are in the state's game records and are well worth the visit.
