Birds & Waterfowl
Maine has always been known as an Upland Bird hotspot. Here at Loon Lodge is no exception, with ideal cover and lack of hunting pressure our hunters usually end up limited out at the end of the day. Maine is also a great place to train that new pup, our birds lack the fear of birds further south and hold better for the pup in training. Many miles of tote roads grown in with alders provide great habitat for our woodcock population and the many beech ridges in the region make for great grouse habitat. A lot of our older clearcuts are approaching the 10-15 year old age group and many thrive with poplar trees, a favorite of upland birds. All this adds up to great upland bird hunting and as an added feature we have one of the heaviest populations of snowshoes in the state.
Waterfowl hunting is nothing less than exciting. The area around Loon Lodge is covered in marshes, wetlands, shallow lakes and meandering deadwaters. All favorite haunts of ducks and geese. Varieties include but are not limited to Black Duck, Green Wing Teal, Ringneck Ducks, Pintails, Megansers, Canada Geese, Snow Geese, Mallards and Wood Ducks. But occasionally you can come across some Golden Eyes, Blue Wing Teal, Hooded Merganers and more.
Loon Lodge offers excellent guided hunts for both upland birds and waterfowl. Our guides have well trained dogs for flushing, pointing and retrieving. For those of you with limited time or are new to the area a guided hunt is highly recommended.
Our guides know the areas best covers for upland birds and also have blinds and decoy sets for the waterfowl hunters. If you decide to go with a guided hunt we can only recommend one thing, bring lots of shells, you will need them.
