Maine Moose Hunting Guide | Northern Maine Moose Hunts

Spaulding Lake Outfitters trophy Maine moose hunts are a hunt of a lifetime where our clients can expect quality service and we know how to fulfill this coveted once in a lifetime hunt.

Maine is lucky enough to be one of the few states to have an abundant moose population.  Maine state biologists estimate the Maine moose population to be around 75,000.  This is the largest concentration of moose in the country besides Alaska.  No wonder Maine is now one of the top moose hunting destinations in the United States.  A mature bull moose can weigh in around 1,000 pounds or more, and their antlers can span an average of 6’.

Spaulding Lake Outfitters is fortunate to be located in Aroostook County, the highest populated moose areas in the State of Maine.

Enter the Maine Moose Hunting Lottery to have a chance at one of the most coveted hunts in the United States and let Spaulding Lake Outfitters be your choice of guiding you on this coveted hunt!!

Northern Maine offers a three-part Moose hunting season:

  • The first season is late September when the moose rut is just beginning, and the bulls will start responding to calling.  This is a very exciting way to hunt our majestic Maine Moose.
  • The second season is early October when the colors of fall are at their peak and the Maine Moose rut is winding down.  Trophy bulls will still respond to calling and they are in a heavy feeding pattern to regain the weight they lost during the rut.
  • The third season is later in October this year when our Maine Moose are back into their feeding areas and calling will not be used as often as in the first and second seasons.  Spot and stalk hunts are the ideal way at this time to harvest a trophy Maine Moose.

Prior to your Maine Moose hunting season, Spaulding Lake Outfitters logs numerous hours of scouting to ensure our clients have an opportunity at a trophy Moose hunt of lifetime.
