Maine Deer Hunting

Maine Deer Hunting at Chandler Lake Camps has a long history of successful trophy Whitetail hunting since 1902.

Maine Deer Hunting is alive and well here at Chandler Lake Camps and Lodge in the heart of the North Maine Woods.  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 hunt Maine Deer hard. Make sure you bring good gear, a sighted-in rifle, and a determination to hunt Maine Deer hard all day. Mental attitude is key to a successful Maine Deer Hunt.

Maine Deer Hunting

Heart of the North Maine Woods

Our Maine 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.

Big Maine Bucks

Our trophy bucks dress well over 200 pounds and score consistently over the 140-inch range. Maine 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 Big Maine Deer are food, cover, and snow. The predominant 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.
