Prime Rut Moose Hunt Available for Immediate Purchase!


Dave Conley, full time guide, outfitter and owner of Canoe the Wild has a Maine moose hunting package available for immediate purchase! A new law recently passed by the Maine legislature allocates 50 moose permits to Maine sporting camps through a special lottery. We are working for a sporting camp that has a bull permit in Wildlife Management District 1 during the September season which is peak rut. In 2018, WMD 1 had the highest success rate of all the WMDs at 87% success rate on bulls! See report here.

Hunting package is $15,000.00 and includes:

  • 2 shooters, one moose (permittee and sub-permittee)
  • 6-day hunt
  • Private land owner access fees into the North Maine Woods
  • Meals
  • One on one guide
  • Quartering & removing your moose from the woods
  • Caping your moose for a shoulder or European mount
  • Game bags

Additional costs include:

  • Moose Permit ($1500.00)
  • Big game hunting license $115.00
  • For those that are flying to Maine verses driving, we recommend flying in and out of Presque Isle and staying overnight on both ends of your hunt at the Hampton Inn, transportation to and from camp is $200 each way (3 hour drive over tar and mostly good dirt roads)
  • If you choose to use a local butcher to cut up your meat, $500.00
  • Gratuity at hunter’s discretion

What a privilege and blessing it was to take part in assisting this moose hunt for disabled veterans northern Maine! This special hunt was made possible by Paul House and House in the Woods and hosted by Smoldering Lake Outfitters in Bridgewater. Organizations supporting the hunt for disabled veterans include Am Vets of the Yarmouth Post, Alaska Healing Hearts, Peterson’s Outdoor Ministries and Hunters Helping Soldiers. In all 13 out of 15 took a moose. Several took bear while on hunts in the Lee Maine area and while at Smoldering Lake Outfitters. Numerous Maine Hunting Guides volunteered their time and services to the veterans.
