Maine is one of the few places in the continental United States to allow moose hunting. However, to hunt moose in Maine you must draw a tag in the annual moose lottery. I have been a licensed Maine Master Guide for 20 years now, and in that time, I have helped many moose hunters who were fortunate enough to draw a tag. I would like to share the story of a 2014 moose hunt.
You’re imagining it right now. A 50-acre tract of pristine hunting real estate. That shiny, newly printed deed sparkling when the light hits it just right.

Most deer hunters dream of owning their own land, but many believe it’s out of their reach. The thought of buying land can cause a lot of anxiety, but a lot of that is due to a few rampant misconceptions. In reality, buying land is a fairly simple process. At least, most of the time.
