Maine Deer Hunts

2013 Deer season

2013 Deer season

1 DEC 2013

Rifle season ended the day before we finally received some snow :-(...Thankfully we have 2 more weeks to hunt the elusive Maine Whitetail as Monday our two week Muzleloader season begins. It has been an exciting year thus far here in Downeast Maine. We had just 4 hunters this year with one harvesting a young 6 pt buck.

I really got to spend a lot more time scouting and hunting around the lodge this year. The Wilderness Lodge is blessed to be located in perfect Deer territory. We are smack dab in the middle of Oaks which this year produced a bumper crop of acorns. The Deer are having no trouble finding food. We also have great cover in and around the Oaks with a combination of Swamps/wetlands, thick Spruce/Hemlock and Cedar, as well as hardwood ridges, 1000's of acres ofBlue Berry barrens as well as (carabou bogs )  also known as Heaths.

The Whitetail Deer sightings have been fantastic since winter let loose it's grip on Eastern Maine. Not that it had much of a grip to begin with. I didn't measure each storm but, if it added up to 2 feet the entire winter, I'd be surprised. The storms were spread out enough that it never accumulated to 2 feet. Each storm pretty much melted away prior to the next one. Most of the winter we were enjoying bare ground. The deer herd too, enjoyed it as well. I've seen many more deer than usual this spring  and they all look healthy and well fed. I'd be happy to get 3 winters in a row just like this one.
