Each week during hunting season, a limited number of hunters go big game hunting for white-tailed deer accompanied by our Maine Registered Guides. In the quest for a trophy buck, friendships are formed along with memories to last a lifetime. Join us.

2023 GUIDED MAINE DEER HUNTING
Experience chasing elusive Maine whitetail giants the way it used to be done, deep in the north woods where the monarchs of whitetail deer live out of sight. They can achieve weights up to 200-300 lbs. with antler scores in the 150 range.
Your team of dedicated deer chasers guides hunters year after year, resulting in many wall hanger bucks that qualify for the coveted "Maine big buck patch," which, for whitetails is a dressed weight over 200 lbs. Our whitetail hunts are not for everyone. Together we'll track many miles in snow and spend hours stand hunting, dedicated to increase your chances of crossing paths with a trophy. It's what LL&C strives for.
In addition to the numerous hours Team LL&C puts in for scouting, we work with many loggers and foresters. Our connections with local logging operations gives you an advantage beyond having an extra set of eyes in the woods: they give us information on where to concentrate our efforts in finding trophy game, their work creates new generation growth habitat which deer think is candy, and they will help with game retrieval to roadside.
What are your options for deer hunting? LL&C's stand hunting options are strategically placed based on wind conditions to give you the best possible opportunity to connect with a nice mature Maine buck. You can choose to hunt with a bow, rifle or, muzzleloader, depending on what week you hunt. There are also options to go on a fully-guided deer hunt or a semi-guided deer hunt where we point you in the direction of areas where deer have been seen, provide you with maps and GPS locations, but you hunt without a guide accompanying you.
We start the day with a hearty breakfast way before daylight, hunt hard in different areas, have a light lunch, and after an adrenaline rush of a day, return back to our cozy lodge to a wonderful home-cooked dinner by the fire.
So gather up your wool clothing and your gum rubbers and join us on an old-school Maine adventure.
The 2023 season dates for deer hunting are shown in the chart below.
*Only deer with antlers at least 3" long may be taken from October 28-December 9, 2023, except that any deer may be taken in designated WMDs by hunters with any-deer permits.
Exceptions: Additional deer may be taken by participating in the Expanded Archery Season, or by anyone possessing a bonus antlerless deer permit or superpack antlerless deer permit.
ACCOMMODATIONS FOR HUNTERS
LL&C offers spacious accommodations for the members of your hunting party during your 7-night/6-day hunting package in our lodge building, plus we have access to remote off-grid cabins in specialized hunting zones. Plan to arrive at the lodge mid-afternoon for check-in. You'll enjoy home-cooked meals throughout your stay. We like to welcome our hunters the night of their arrival with a Maine surf and turf dinner (lobster when it's available, steak or chicken and blueberry pie) while you get acquainted with your fellow hunters. Be sure to check out our Hall of Fame trophy wall in the lodge dining room. We make our boats and canoes available during non-hunting hours if you'd like to do some fishing.
