Maine Moose Hunts
Hunting for your trophy moose with Spruce Mountain Lodge will be an experience you will never forget. Maine’s moose herd is estimated at 30,000. Nationwide, Maine ranks second only to Alaska in moose population. If you’re a winner in the Maine moose lottery, be prepared for the experience hunting of a lifetime.
Each year, the state of Maine issues a number of Moose permits through a lottery drawing. Application for moose permits must be made to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. The deadline for moose permit applications is April 1st.

Weather in Maine can change rapidly, so bring warm clothes, rain gear, flashlight, sleeping bag, choice of weapon and personal items. Moose hunters must wear at least one article of fluoresent orange clothing.
Once you have your trophy moose, we can help you arrange for the processing of the meat. We can also make arrangements for you with an excellent taxidermist (a deposit is required for this service, contact us for details). Examples of his work can be seen at our home or at Spruce Mountain Lodge. Please contact us for a brochure, references and complete details.
