Hunt the North Maine Woods for Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock
We chase ruffed grouse and woodcock in northern Maine, well known for it's superb grouse and woodcock cover and 3.5 million acres of logging trails and endless areas to hunt, with no competition. We are in the direct flight path of migrating woodcock. Lunch and transportation provided, hunt your dogs or our dogs, or a combination. First time beginner dogs our specialty.
There is nothing better than walking down a meandering logging trail on a beautiful Maine October day with blue skies, cool crispy temps, and stunning scenery, listening to the dog bells and the thunderous explosions of flushing ruffed grouse!
Dogs of Chick Hill Guide Service, aka, the "Chick Hill Bird Dawg Gang"
This is the ultimate Maine bird hunting adventure! A good set of broken in field boots are a must. Don't forget rain gear. Early October can be warm, so quick wicking outer garments work well. Mornings are cool, so layers are the order of the day. Hunter orange required for your safety. You can get your license online at the Maine IF&W (click on the link) and keep a copy on your phone.
Grouse season in 2020 starts the last Saturday in September, woodcock season starts 1 October - 21 Nov. There is no Sunday hunting in Maine.

Jay Wright // Nov 10, 2019 Thanks for a great Maine grouse hunt - ended up with three birds! Your dogs did great, and I really enjoyed the area, Maynard's in Maine, and your company. I learned a lot from you, and you really put me at ease. Looking forward to a future trip!
