Maine Deer Hunting

Maine Deer Hunting at Chandler Lake Camps has a long history of successful trophy Whitetail hunting since 1907.


The traditional method of Maine Deer Hunting true wilderness bucks has been still hunting and tracking. This method can be very successful especially when the snow hits. The important thing is to be ready to deer hunt hard. Make sure you bring good gear, a sighted-in rifle, and a determination to hunt deer hard all day. Mental attitude is key to a successful deer hunt.

Our deer hunting takes place on over 3.5 million acres of the last true wilderness in the lower 48 states. In country this size, it is important to have good map skills, knowledge of how to use a compass, and even a GPS- especially if you’re deer hunting alone. Maine Deer Hunting not only is about tradition it is about true woodsman skills.  We are always happy to offer refresher courses for all of the above.

Our trophy bucks dress well over 200 pounds and score consistently over the 140 inch range. Deer this size did not grow big by making mistakes, so the deer hunter must be adaptable, determined and ready for that split second opportunity at his memorable big Maine deer.

The key factors that affect our deer are food, cover and snow. The predominate mast crop is beechnuts which are cyclic by nature. We are in the heart of great hardwood ridges and river bottoms 30 miles north of Katahdin, situated between the Aroostook and Allagash Rivers. Snow means deer travel greater distances to winter in the perfect environment our area has to offer. We keep all of our deer hunters updated on peak conditions for getting the trophy buck they are seeking.

Chandler lake Camps is a traditional Maine sporting camp that caters to small groups of up to 12 hunters per week. Our camps offer great food, hot showers, and is just a beautiful place to take a step back in time when the game was plentiful and sportsmen and sportswomen were treated with respect.
Our staff consists of dedicated deer hunters themselves that take a personal interest in honing their skills and enjoy the challenge of a good deer hunt.

* Extensively scout the area

* Have intimate knowledge of the area

* An enthusiasm to please and succeed

* Have a team effort on the deer hunt

* Give the deer hunters a friendly atmosphere
