Deer Hunting

Chandler Lake Camps has a long history of successful Trophy Maine Whitetail hunting since 1907.

2011 game cam 3The traditional method of 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 big Maine deer hard all day. Mental attitude is key to a successful Maine Northwoods deer hunt.

Our Maine Whitetail deer hunts take 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. We are always happy to offer refresher courses for all of the above.

Our Trophy Whitetail 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.

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.

Our guides believe to outwit the trophy buck you have to:

* 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
