Maine Grouse and Woodcock Hunting

The Elusive Timberdoodle


Eagle Mountain's Wilderness Lodge is fortunate to be located right in the heart of the Woodcock migratory fly ways. Most of the season Master Maine Guide, Matt Whitegiver and his team of English Pointers is guiding for one of the premier upland bird hunting lodges in the country (Leens Lodge). Matt has been a member of the exclusive Leens team for nine years, which keeps us pretty well booked throughout the Oct bird season. We highly recommend Leens Lodge for your upland bird hunting. With it's beautiful lake-side lodging and fine dining, Leens is about the best you'll find anywhere in the East.

20 to 40 flushes per day are common.

Grouse hunting is excellent and Woodcock  hunting is unmatched here in Downeast Maine. Eagle Mountain offers an "old time country hunting lodge" rustic atmosphere, private rooms and great home cooked meals. Hunt on your own with your own dogs and stay with us at the Lodge or stay in one of our remote cabins. Check out our lodging page for more information on our lodge and cabins.

"Upland Bird Hunting w/Eagle Mountain My Dad and I wanted to bird hunt in Maine for many years and finally got the chance. We met up with Matt one day for an incredible hunt, killing our limit of Woodcock. Matt was an incredible guide with fantastic dogs. Growing up in the South quail hunting, we were no strangers to great hunting. The scenery was incredible, but the hunting was even better. Perfect dogs and a great handler. I would recommend Matt to anyone. We left with some great memories as well as a new found friend. Can't wait to go again"!  Trepp McMahon
