Northern maine Guided Upland Bird Hunting
Maine Registered Guide with over 40 years of experience in the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, surfing...you name it. I have always loved the outdoors. From as early as I can remember, I was following my Dad around while pheasant hunting while growing up in NJ. I was "in charge" of picking up the empty shells. I followed along until I was able to get my first hunting license by passing my hunter safety at age 9 1/2. Stocking pheasants season after season for the local rod & gun club...I did whatever it took to get outdoors.
Many years of hunting and fishing followed. After graduating from UMaine, Orono I settled down in Southern Maine but continued to be drawn to the North Maine Woods.
It's the northern reaches of Maine where I found my calling for guiding. I truly love chasing upland game birds and even more so watching the reactions of fellow hunters when the "King of Game Birds" takes off like a rocket into the thick spruce stands and clear cuts. they go by many names: Pa'tridge, Drummers, Ruffies, Thunder-Chickens, etc. Whatever you choose to call them, they are sure to get the heart beating and the adrenaline flowing!
I love seeing the look on my friends, colleagues and clients faces after a day of hunting upland birds. Sharing stories, meeting new friends and the mutual appreciation of all that Maine has to offer. I hope to be able to share those experiences with you as well on future hunts.
