Maine moose hunts are in September and October, please contact us for licensing information. A Maine trophy moose can be as large as 1000 pounds dressed weight with a rack spread of between 50 and 60 inches. The moose hunt season dates are usually the last week of September and the second week in October, although it changes from year to year. A Maine moose hunt at our camps comes with the services of Moose hunting guides. This hunt is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a Maine moose, the best moose hunt in the world. Applications for a license are available by DIFW, online, after January 1 and due by the first of April or they are available by contacting us. We will get you in touch with the wildlife department and also guide you through the application process.
During the rut our trophy Maine moose are called in by Bradford camps registered guides. Calling is very effective in attracting trophy bulls that are looking for a mate. It is one of the most exciting hunts in the world when you hear a Maine bull moose grunting his way through the woods towards you!
Scouting for your moose is available with a pre-week guide service, as well as by floatplane located at camp. We will locate moose before you even arrive, and study ways to get to them, and hold them in those general areas by calling and keeping them interested.
Contact us early in the year if you want to be provided with a moose hunting Maine permit. New laws in 2012 will allow state residents to fill you in on their lottery permit, so you have a good chance of now getting a moose permit!
You can also bid on one of ten auction hunts offered by the state each year. The auction money goes towards a youth camp for underprivileged Maine residents. The bid details are available online at the Maine DIFW website, or call us and we will help you. Winning bids generally run from $7,000 up to $12,000.
