Guided Moose Hunts in Maine

Guided Moose Hunts in Maine

Congratulations on being drawn for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to harvest a Maine Moose. We’re here for you and your needs in order to make the most of this opportunity!

Why Hunt with Bull Moose Wilderness Adventures?

At BMWA we offer unparalleled scouting that starts as soon as the prior season ends. We take flights over many of our hunting areas through the winter, spring, and summer to track the big ones and get ready for the upcoming season. We spend countless hours throughout the winter, spring, and fall scouting for moose. Some of the best scouting is done in winter and spring when we are locating sheds dropped by large bulls.

We have designed and customized our own recovery equipment and utilize all methods of recovery to ensure your harvest is getting the best care. Most recoveries are done quicker and provide better care by hauling them out of the woods whole. In some cases, it's better to quarter the moose in the woods and pack it out. We have the knowledge, equipment, and experience to make the best recovery and ensure your harvest is properly cared for.

Most importantly, we limit the number of hunts we take to 3 each season. This ensures every hunter has an exceptional experience and opportunity! We offer a traditional guided hunting package complete with meals and lodging. We can upgrade your hunting package to include things like remote camping, air scouting, or a second guide. Nobody is more thorough, more prepared, or outworks our team.

Best of all, we start off every hunt with a traditional Maine Lobster Bake! If you don't like lobster, we can substitute it with a great steak!

What to Expect

What to Expect on Your Maine Moose Hunt

Frost on the ground, the raking of antlers against the trees accompanied by the grunts of an angry bull moving towards you. You can see the steam from its breath rise above the small trees. Adrenaline is pumping and your heart is racing. This is the kind of hunt that dreams are made of...

On your moose hunt, you will have the option to stay in our first-class hunting lodge or camp out in the remote wilderness of Northern Maine. You will be hosted by one of our top-notch hunting guides, and although there are no guarantees, we have not failed a client yet. We consistently harvest mature bulls year after year. Mature bulls in Maine have racks from 40" to over 60" and weigh from 750 to over 1000 pounds dressed. In 2021, our average bull was 8.5 years old and weighed 800 pounds.

We do hunts in Zones 4, 5, and 6 via remote camp and 11, 18, and 19 out of our lodge. No matter which area, style of hunt, or hunt package you choose, you can expect to have a hunt you will never forget!

Plan Your Moose Hunt

Our Hunting Grounds - Moose Hunting Areas in NE Maine

We hunt three core areas with differing characteristics and hunting opportunities.

The Northeastern Corner where Zone 11, 18 and 19 sit is filled with rolling hills, lots of lakes and swamps and most cutting has been done via selective harvest.  This particular area tends to be thick with small trees and visibility is limited.  Often times we will have interactions with mature bulls at close range.  Shots are typically less than 50 yards.  And many times, we will have bulls with 15 to 20 yards and not even be able to see them.  These zones have fewer permits and the animals see very little hunting pressure.  We hunts these zones from our first class lodge.

The Maine Northwoods sits in the northwest corner and is covered partially by Zones 4 and 8. The North Maine Woods is nearly 20% of the State of Maine and has no power, phone or internet.  This is as remote as you can get in Maine.  This area has the highest density of Moose in the World.  Some areas boast approximately 12 moose per square mile and the whole territory average 8 per square mile.  The high density means a lot of permits and a lot of hunting pressure.  This zone really takes the extra effort to get away from the masses and into the best hunting areas.  This is where our determination and expertise shine the best.  The mix of heavily forested areas in varying ages presents prime habitat for moose.  These moose are hunted hard and are far more shy than other zones.   Hunts in this area can be extremely challenging but also highly rewarding to those who put in the extra effort.  In 2021, Zone 4 had a success of 55%.  We had a 100% opportunity rate and were 13 for 14.  These hunts are done remotely.

The Central Woodlands is where Zone 5 and 6 sit.  This area has been heavily forested for the past decade with many clear cuts and replanted areas bordering thick cover.  This area can result in the most sightings of animals due to its open nature.  To get the big ones in these zones, you need to focus on their core areas.  Large bulls are shy and do not often get pulled out into the open.  Hunting the edges of these large cuts where there is good cover and water can be very productive.   These hunts are done via remote outposts or tents.
