Bear/Fall 2016 - Sophia, NC

My visit to Spaulding Lake outfitters was like visiting one of my brothers I had not seen for a while. What I mean by that is I was fortunate enough to be the only hunter the week of my hunt. Instead of putting me in the cabin Jeff and Tracey had me stay in their home. We got up early the first day of my hunt and checked at least 15 cameras looking for sign of bears. Jeff and Brian worked really hard to ensure a successful hunt. I harvested a large bear on my first day. For me it was not all about taking a bear. The experience of watching the dogs work brought back a lot of good memories from hunting trips with my grandfather. The hospitality was exceptional. The meals were simply incredible. I was impressed with all of the hard work everyone put into making this a great experience. I am looking forward to my next visit. Spaulding Lake Outfitters will be my go to outfitter for any future Maine hunts.

This was a great hunt with an amazing group of folks. Thanks to Jeff and Spaulding Lake outfitters for an outstanding black bear hunt. Over that past few years I’ve been on several different successful hunts, and none can compare to the experience I had at Spaulding Lake. Everything is setup first class. Tree stands were new and positioned well with more locations and choices than I could have imagined. It didn’t matter if you were hunting with bow or gun, they had prime locations set up and ready to go. If you want to book a hunt with your son or daughter this is the place to go! From the food to the accommodations, you couldn’t ask for more. In fact if you could possibly eat half of the great food this place prepares I would be amazed. Everything is taken care of for you. After I took my bear, the recovery, check in, and processing of the meat were all set up. Spaulding Lake works alongside you all the way. I actually had a few open days after I took my bear, and instead of just bouncing around at the lodge, Jeff took me out and taught me how to fly fish!! I for one will be back to hunt with Jeff and Kenny, hopefully for my first Moose hunt. These guys a so passionate about your experience, you can’t help but leave with new friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

Fall 2015 - Oakfield, ME

I just want to say I had the time of my life during my black bear hunt! The only thing missing was family and friends I would have loved to share the experience with! Although I didn't get a bear, I have never seen or had the opportunity at three shooter bear during the same week of a hunt! As you told me Jeff, trying to pick me up, "it just wasn't the bears time", I realize how much I was blessed to have had the opportunities and you were the reason why I had a successful experience! As I told you, I will be back next year if the good Lord allows!!! I want to thank Pam and Nora as well with providing some of the best food a hunter could ever imagine being served! I didn't expect to gain 5 lbs when I left home to go hunt but I did! As for as your assisting guide Kenny, a very good help, gentleman, and guide taking ever effort to make things work for each hunter! Thanks to Spaulding Lake Outfitters for such a great successful experience and may any future hunters be as satisfied as I am! Also and most importantly, I know I left there having a new friend and friends! Thanks Jeff and I'll see you and the crew the same time next year! May God bless all of you!!

Fall 2015 Whitetail - East Haddam, ct

I had a great experience. Jeff and his staff couldn't have been more hardworking and professional. The food and the accomodations were excellent. The warm weather and lack of rutting proved to be a challenging hunt but Jeff worked tirelessly to try and make it a success. If i'm lucky enough to draw a Moose tag I plan to return to the North Woods and hunt with Jeff and Spaulding Lake Outfitters.

Fall 2015 Deer - Connecticut

I was part of a group of 7 acquantainces who spent a week at SLO. From the moment we arrived until we left our experience with Jeff was outstanding. He was the consummate professional, making each of us feel as though we were his only client. The facility was super clean and the meals were more than superb. When we left we all had a new friend. Would definitely hunt with him again.

Fall 2015 - Oakfield, ME.

After my 12 year old son was picked for the fall moose hunt I started a search for the guide or outfitter to make this experience he would never forget. I made the right choice. Jeff made this hunt his. From the moment we arrived till the day we left we felt like family. My son harvested a 84 lbs. 47"spread beautiful moose. Many thanks to Jeff Fay and our guide Kenny Coslet for making memories that will last a lifetime. I will return.

2015 hound season - New stanton pa

Thank you Spaulding lake outfitters!! My daughter, father and I were in camp for a hound hunt and had an awesome time. The staff felt like family, jeff and Brian were very professional and a pleasure to be around. They did whatever it took for our comfort and success. It's evident that they live by their motto: come as a client and leave as a friend... we were able to harvest a great bear and appreciate all their efforts. Success is measured differently from person to person, harvesting a bear was a bonus to the professionalism and concern toward my family for our safety and we'll being in all aspects of the hunt . I personally can not wait to return to Spaulding lake and build upon the memories and excitement with my family. This outfitter is highly recommended. See you in 2016

Jeff and Pam,
Thanks again for another great and successful week of deer hunting. The hunting is awesome, the land and views are spectacular. Jeff's knowledge of the area and deer patterns makes all the hard work payoff. Pam is an amazing cook and the food is five star quality all wrapped in a comfortable and affordable accommodations. You guys make it a very special week that I look forward to all year. I will be back up for the spring fishing as well, that was equally as awesome. Thanks again. - 2014

I would first like to thank our guide Jeff and his wife Pam in their beautiful lodge in Oakfield, Maine.  The hospitality was great and Pam cooked some really great meals.

I was the first in my family to ever be drawn a moose permit, and we had this big plan to head up north to the zone we were drawn a permit in and camping out.   Well come to find out, there was a guide up there that knew my husband and knew more about the area and moose than we ever did.  Jeff agreed to be our guide as long as we needed him.

We went up a few weeks before opening day and Jeff and Pam welcomed us like family.  Jeff made a comment, “you come as strangers, but leave as friends” and I feel that is exactly what happened.

Jeff did a lot of scouting before the season began, and his knowledge of the area and moose behavior was at its best.  Jeff took his time with us and on the second day we took a 600lb bull moose, after passing up on a few we had seen the day before because I was excited and antsy.  He took his time with us and urged us not to rush and take any bull that walked our way.

I did not know what to expect on this hunt, but realized this was a hunt we could not have done without Jeff.   I would highly recommend Spaulding Lake Outfitters to anyone wanting or needing a guide who knows what they are doing and treats you like family and not just another hunter. - 2014

"My son and I just got our bull moose mount back from our 2012 remote moose hunt.  It brought back a lot of very good memories from the stay in the wall tent.  Good times by the fire, great food, awesome hunt.  I want to thank you for being part of the best time I have ever had with my son.  Him being drawn the first time he entered the moose lottery and taking an 874lb 54" bull moose with your help is something he, nor I will ever forgot.

Thank you very much for making this a trip of a lifetime." - 2012

"I had the opportunity to hunt a bull moose in Zone 1 with Jeff .  Jeff's commitment to pre-season scouting, his understanding of the moose behavior, and dedication to fair chase hunting is unsurpassed.  We took at 49" bull the second day of the season after having seen three mature bulls.  If one is looking for a true off foot remote Maine moose hunt, i would highly recommend Spaulding Lake Outfitters." - 2013
