We had a stellar season in 2015 and are really looking forward to see what 2016 brings. We will again be setting up our remote tent camps as far away from the crowds as we can get and into some of the best trophy moose habitat that Maine offers. Getting into remote areas and away from other hunters is often the key to finding success on trophy bulls year after year like we have. In 2015 we harvested six great bulls with our method of hunting and it really reiterated to us the importance of hiring a quality outfitter. An outfitter that is not afraid to hunt off the beaten path and pack your trophy moose out if need be. We harvested THREE bulls last year over 11.5 years of age and the average age of the moose we harvested was 9.33 years of age. It really shows how getting into remote areas can get you into older more mature bulls. Danny from CT took the oldest bull at 12.5 years old. Mark called this bull in an area that probably hasn’t seen a hunter for at least three seasons due to a road wash out. It was an exciting hunt in some thick timber, required packing Danny’s bull out, and really made for a memorable hunt! This bull was well past his prime, without a doubt had a much larger rack years back, has seen many hunting seasons, and a real trophy in our book! We’ve nicknamed him “Dugga Bull!!”

17 year old Savannah harvested an exceptional bull that aged right in his prime at 7.5 years old. I called this bull in opening morning of the September season in the middle of a bog between two road systems. He came in raking and there was no question in our minds when he appeared, that he was a shooter!! We ended up having to pack this bull out about a 1/2 mile to the nearest logging road. What a hunt!!
