A newer activity in recreation and one quite unique to Maine is our antler shed hunting. Although deer sheds may be found occasionally the real prizes are our beautiful moose sheds. Predominantly an early spring exercise; shed hunting is a treasure hunt through Maine’s beautiful woodlands. Our guides’ knowledge of Maine’s animals will give you the upper hand in discovering these treasures. If you want a little piece of the outdoors and Maine to take home this is a great opportunity for you.
For the fly fisherman in particular Maine has countless possibilities. In order to preserve Maine’s pristine trout waters our inland fisheries and wildlife has placed fly fishing only restrictions on many of our waters. This provides us with the ability as fly fishermen to go where few have gone and catch wild trout that have never seen artificial lures before. Our guides’ knowledge on all aspects of fly fishing from casting, to presentation, to the flies that will suit you best is second to none.
