On your Maine upland bird hunting adventure, you can expect to be picked up around 7:00 A.M. We will then head straight for the hunt grounds where we will hunt for the day. Around noon we will stop for lunch, either in woods or back at camp depending on where we are hunting that day. This is a full day’s hunt so we will continue throughout the afternoon chasing the wily northern Maine grouse. If the flight is on, we will be able to hunt Maine’s Woodcock for a nice mixed bag. Around dinner time we will head back to the lodge.

If we stay at a remote camp, breakfast and dinner will be included in the hunt. We will be able to relax by a fire until bed time.

Maine Ruffed Grouse & Woodcock Hunting

On your Maine upland bird hunting adventure with Reddog Guide Service, you will have the opportunity to hunt some of the best ruffed grouse hunting cover in Maine. Hunting grounds include thousands and thousands of acres of commercial woodlands, old farms and old apple orchards. Our region is located in a major Woodcock fly way. If your hunt is timed right you could catch one of the major flights for a World Class caliber Maine Woodcock Hunting Adventure. We also offer professionally trained dogs to hunt over including our top notch Vizsla or German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP). You are welcome to bring your own dogs as well. On an average day you could have between 10 – 20 flushes per day. Throughout the day your Maine upland bird hunting guide will tell you about some of the local history in the area as well. Our goal is to make this a most enjoyable and memorable Maine Upland Bird Hunting experience for you and your family!

Maine Waterfowl Hunts

We offer incredible Maine Waterfowl Hunts. You will be hunting the infamous Merrymeeting Bay and areas that the famous Maine duck hunters, and market hunters have hunted for Black Ducks and Mallards. We can hunt the area beaver bogs and can incorporate a field hunt for Canadian geese. Our Canadian goose hunts run in early September in the fields and lakes around the area. Our diver duck hunts for Ring Necks and Golden Eyes take place on the area lakes and bays. We offer guided Rail hunts in early September. On this hunt I will push you through the rice patches on a canoe. We will jump Rail and enjoy the great scenery of the Merrymeeting Bay while learning the history of the bay.
