Dave Conley, full time guide and outfitter, offers guided moose hunts in Maine’s Wildlife Management Districts (WMD) 1,2, 4 & 5. These WMDs have the largest population of moose in Maine. The September and October moose hunting seasons coincide with the rut with the September season being prime rut. Much like turkey and elk, moose can be very susceptible to calling. What a thrill to interact with a trophy bull moose as it responds to the call.
Hunt From Remote Moose Hunting Camps
While many hunters drive more then an hour one way each day just to get to their hunting grounds, our camps are located in the heart of prime moose hunting country well away from any towns. You can drive right to camp, park your vehicle and let use take care of the rest. Camps include top-notch accommodations, the main shelter serves as a community area for meals. Private sleep tents for your party of 2-3 persons are spacious 12′ x 12′ Cabela’s Alaknak Ultimate Outfitter tents complete with cots, carpet flooring and a wood stove. Note, we normally only have one hunting party in camp, maybe two. The most we would book is three hunting parties in camp at one time.
A Look Back at Our September 2018 Hunt
it’s 24 degrees and bulls are not coming to the cow call so we change tactics on a distant grunting bull. After a quarter mile spot n stalk and challenging this bull, he came in like a freight train! What a thrill as Adam harvested this bull at under 25 Yards (more).
For those with physical limitations, we hunt close to dirt roads or shorten the distance we travel on foot. We’ll adapt your hunt based on your physical abilities and desires.
Dave has personally guided over 30 moose hunts with a 97% success rate. In fact, the only time we did not harvest a bull was on a last minute one day hire. With the ability to quarter and pack out your moose, we’re able to get on foot to spot n stalk, placing you in Maine’s best moose country.
