For more than 40 years the Maine Professional Guides Association (MPGA) has been leading the way for all of us who make our living in the woods and on the waters of Maine. It is a significant milestone and one worth celebrating.

More than a century has passed since Cornelia Thurza Crosby, aka “Fly Rod Crosby,” was issued the very first guide’s license, on March 19, 1897. Our guiding tradition predates one of the most famous chroniclers of the Maine woods: Henry David Thoreau. Since our beginnings, Maine Guides have become synonymous with capable and ethical outdoor leadership. Today Maine Guides are recognized worldwide for their professionalism, their knowledge of the outdoors and their ability to develop the kinds of winning relationships that keep visitors coming back. Over the past four decades the MPGA has grown to be a diverse group representing a wide range of outdoor pursuits and members. The bottom line, however, remains the same: protecting and enhancing the venerable tradition of guiding while conserving the resources that we all depend on.

We also employ a lobbyist to represent our collective interests at the State House. Every year brings new challenges, and the MPGA brings reasoned perspective to the ever-changing political landscape. That is why it is so important for us to keep our organization vital and active. If you are looking for a skilled guide for your outdoor adventure in Maine, please search our membership. It is the source for the best guides available. Above all else, enjoy your time in the outdoors. We all work very hard to provide top-notch guiding services, and that always has been our primary goal: a memorable and enjoyable outdoor experience for all of our clients. Sincerely,

All of our members have signed an ethics pledge that contains four key elements:

Jeff Bellmore, President •

Obey all state and federal laws.

Cooperate with all wildlife officials and landowners.

Provide quality service and equipment.

Promote conservation and education, and put safety above all else.

Our membership is comprised of guides from all regions of the state. We are proud of our reputation as the “group to call” when outdoors issues come up. MPGA members participate in many state-government groups focused on tourism, conservation, land access, landowner relations and various other tasks. We sponsor kids attending the Bryant Pond Conservation School every year.

Mission

The overall mission of the Maine Professional Guides Association (MPGA) is to protect and enhance the profession, incomes and outdoor heritage of Maine Guides and to maintain the natural resources they and their customers depend upon. The Maine Professional Guides Association’s Mission: Through cooperation with other groups, political action and public education, the Maine Professional Guides Association aims to preserve natural resources and the traditions of guiding and outdoor recreation. We work with other groups, such as federal agencies, industry, agricultural interests and other sporting and conservation organizations, to solve problems involving natural-resource conservation and outdoor recreation. The MPGA also actively sponsors or opposes legislation that affects Maine Guides or the natural resources they depend on. Additionally,

we work to preserve good relationships between sportsmen and landowners, and we support education to promote good sportsmanship and ethics, firearm safety and responsible use of natural resources. The Maine Professional Guides Association’s stated purposes are to: •

Work cooperatively with the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, the Department of Conservation, the Department of Marine Resources and other state and federal agencies on issues that will improve or promote the interests of professional Maine Guides, enhance the image of Maine Guides, encourage the wise use of renewable natural resources and ensure the future of traditional forms of outdoor recreation.

Work cooperatively with industry, agricultural interests, government, and sporting and conservation groups whose overall objectives are not inconsistent with those of the Corporation

to arrive at workable and logical solutions to problems related to guiding, outdoor recreation and the use of natural resources. •

Actively participate in writing, sponsoring and supporting legislation or regulation at state and federal levels that promote or enhance the interests of professional Maine Guides and to conserve the natural resources that are essential to the future of the guiding profession.

Vigorously oppose legislation or regulation that would be harmful to professional Maine Guides or the guiding profession or that would directly and negatively impact natural resources that are essential to the future of guiding or that would unnecessarily restrict hunting, fishing or related activities that traditionally have involved the use of Maine Guides.

Cultivate a feeling of good will and mutual understanding through proper recognition and

Protect, support, encourage and promote the safe and legal ownership and use of firearms through education, training, demonstration, dissemination of information and support of appropriate legislation.

What to ask before you make a reservation: •

What exactly does this trip involve? How exactly will we be fishing, hunting and/or traveling? Am I (or others in my party) physically capable of this trip? What changes can be made if the trip is too difficult?

How likely are we to be successful? (A guarantee of success should be viewed with caution.)

How many others will be in camp? How many will be with the guide?

Who will be the guide?

What can we expect for weather conditions? What will happen if the weather conditions prevent our trip from happening as expected? Is there an alternative trip? Will we receive a refund?

10

What is the price? Exactly what is included in the price? Are there any other costs? Are tips included in the price?

Is a deposit required and, if so, what is the policy on refunds? (These things may be clearly stated on the website or in printed material.) What are the expected terms of payment?

Are meals included? If so, what sort of meals will be served? (If you have special dietary requirements, make sure that you let your guide know.)

Is transportation included? If so, from where to where?

Are licenses required? If so, are they included in the price? Greg B / Flickr

What to Ask


or fishing trip. If you clash with your guide, your trip can go from fun to sour in short order. If appropriate, be sure that you will enjoy sharing multiple days with the guide. Keep in mind that a guided trip is a personal experience; take some time getting to know your guide and determine if you are a good match. Also be sure that you and your guide have the same goals for the trip. For example, are you more interested in a quality vacation experience or pursuing a trophy?

You may also want to . . . •

Discuss with the prospective guide everything that will be included in the package price. Make sure that you both are clear on every detail and are in firm agreement on the price and services offered and expected.

Ask for a list of past-client references. References can be an invaluable source for gaining an understanding of the guide’s demeanor and skills as well as for investigating hunting or fishing successes and results. Be sure to contact a number of references in order to get the “big picture.” Be wary of prospective guides who will not provide a list of references.

Verify that your guide is fully licensed in Maine and in the category of activity you plan on doing. Many guides are licensed in one area specifically, such as fishing, hunting or recreation. Also, be sure to verify that your prospective guide has the proper federal licenses, if required, and insurance. Have a few conversations with a prospective guide to see whether your personalities mesh. If possible, meet with the guide in person prior to booking the hunting

Be realistic, and have attainable goals. Realize that many factors can affect hunting or fishing trips, including things like inclement weather, that are beyond the control of the guide. Be sure that you are not asking your prospective guide for something unreasonable, unobtainable or unsafe.

We recommend that you have a written confirmation of what is included when booking a trip that outlines each detail offered, promised or expected on the excursion. It is recommended that the confirmation also include the method of payment and terms of payment. Terms for cancelations or refunds should be outlined in the agreement. Be wary of cash-only deals with no paperwork. It is also advisable to request a written receipt once the trip is completed.

Big-Game Hunting 12


Paul Tessier / Shutterstock

Maine’s most iconic game animal, without a doubt, is the moose. Maine has the highest concentration of moose of any state in the Lower 48. You are especially likely to find one of these majestic animals in the northern and western regions of the state grazing in a secluded mountain pond or trotting alongside a logging road. Weighing up to 1,000 pounds with antlers up to five feet across, a mature bull moose is the ultimate trophy. Maine is home to other big-game species as well. Whitetail deer are most abundant in central and southern regions of the state. Maine also has the highest black bear population in the Eastern US. Bears can be found almost statewide foraging on berries in clear-cuts in the late summer or feasting on beechnuts in the fall.

The wild turkey is another popular game species. With populations having made a dramatic comeback, these birds now can be found in most areas, and there are hunting seasons in both the spring and fall. If you are interested in a challenge, a bobcat hunt might be just what you’re looking for. Spending a crisp winter day hunting with hounds, following tracks in the fresh snow, can be strenuous; but it is extremely rewarding when you finally catch sight of that bobcat you’ve been pursuing.

Big-Game Hunting

The Guided Experience

Trophy whitetail bucks are another draw in the Pine Tree State, and Maine’s big woods are home to larger-thanaverage deer. Sure, you could wander about looking for deer sign or find some public land and erect a tree stand or ground blind (if allowed), but a guide can put the odds in your favor—either setting up a stand or blind in a productive area or taking you to a spot where you might get on a good buck track in the snow. And when you’ve succeeded in dropping that buck of a lifetime, a guide will help get the animal out of the woods. Another popular big-game species is the black bear. With these animals, unless you have a lot of time to invest, you likely won’t enjoy success without a guide. Bear hunting requires a serious amount of

14

scouting and habitat knowledge, and guides will set up stands near known food sources or establish laborintensive bait sites that draw bears out of thick cover. One of the most exciting ways to hunt bears is with hounds—a method that requires plenty of effort and expertise. Put your trust in someone who knows the country and habits of these elusive animals, and you may find yourself placing a tag on a trophy bruin. Not only that, but bear meat is also delicious; so in addition to ending up with a beautiful bear rug you will be filling the freezer with nutritious meat. Many hunters consider wild turkeys big game, although you are allowed to hunt them with a small-game license and turkey permit. Guides know where to find these big birds and can set you up in an area the birds frequent or call them within shotgun range. The other big-game species in Maine is the bobcat, which can lead you on a merry chase with hounds. And then there are exotic species, such as boars, red stags and even fallow deer, which are hunted on preserves. A guide can be the key to providing an enjoyable, safe and productive experience. —JOE HEALY

Paul Cyr

The big show in Maine is big-game hunting—where the state seems to super-size many animal species. Moose, you say? Maine has one of the largest moose populations in the US and, if luck is on your side and you draw a permit, you may find yourself shopping for a larger freezer or being a host for game dinners. Hiring a guide is often the catalyst to success, as a guide will do the scouting, take you to the most likely places to find moose, do the calling, and help you field-dress and get that big animal to a check station.

Small-Game Hunting 22


Jim Cumming / Shutterstock

Millions of acres of excellent habitat provide for large populations of small game in Maine, and there is exciting hunting for a variety of species. For example, you can spend a fast-paced day hunting snowshoe hares behind hounds, hurrying to position yourself as the hares run large circles in the woods. There are few experiences as exhilarating as listening to the bawling of hounds as they run almost out of hearing, and then slowly get louder as they bring the hare around—you watching intently for the movement of your snow-white quarry ghosting through the woods. This is a great opportunity for hunters of all ages and a fun way to spend a crisp winter day.

often use bait and calls to attract the animals, but coyotes also can be hunted with hounds. If you are a squirrel hunter, Maine offers long seasons and abundant opportunities. Sneak along an oak or beechnut flat, and you likely will spot a gray or red squirrel foraging on mast. Then it’s a matter of sneaking close enough and connecting on such a challenging target.

Coyote hunting offers a range of possibilities as well. The season is open year-round, and there is even night hunting at certain times. Hunters

Small-Game Hunting

The Pine Tree State has diverse habitat supporting all manner of small-game species. Snowshoe hares are found in blowdowns in mature forests and in successional growth (cleared forests that have grown back to open fields or agricultural tracts). Raccoons and coyotes thrive in the understory of wooded areas, with gray squirrels in the treetops. Foxes, opossums, skunks, porcupines, woodchucks and red squirrels are also considered small game in Maine. (Note: Although cottontail rabbits, spruce grouse and lynx live in Maine, they cannot be legally hunted.)

If coyotes are the intended quarry, there is no closed season, and from mid-December to the end of August they can be hunted at night. Harvesting a few “song dogs” will help small-game and deer populations by curtailing predation. Many guides are experts at using predator calls or baiting— both of which can draw in coyotes—and some use hounds. Few things are as thrilling as listening to the hounds baying on a hot track and following their progress from ridge to ridge as they bring the coyote around to a spot where you can intercept it.

Hunting snowshoe hares and raccoons often requires the help of hounds, which make for an exciting pursuit, as the dogs bay when on the trail of game. Snowshoes tend to circle when chased, so hunters can take a stand and wait for the racing hare to pass by. Hiring a Maine Guide with a kennelful of dogs is a huge advantage in chasing these white ghosts of the uplands.

Maine has almost 20 million acres of commercial forestland available for public hunting, and a guide can take you to the most productive spots and teach you the most productive techniques. In the process you’ll likely get some fast shooting, learn to identify animal tracks and perhaps even pick up some woodsmanship skills. —JOE HEALY

Stalking gray squirrels can be an excellent way to introduce youngsters to hunting and, with a season that stretches from the beginning of October until year’s end, there are opportunities to hunt in a variety of conditions. A guide can set you up on a productive oak or beech flat and greatly increase your odds of success.

Upland-Game & Waterfowl Hunting 30


Tom Fowlks

With millions of acres of excellent habitat, Maine has healthy populations of gamebirds throughout the state. Upland birds such as grouse and woodcock are especially abundant in mixed-age forests in the northeast and west and the reverting farmlands closer to the coast. These are wild birds offering great shooting opportunities, and many guides employ either pointing or flushing dogs. Pheasants are stocked in some areas, and a few guides offer hunts on their own stocked shooting areas. As for waterfowl, Maine has plenty of lakes, ponds, rivers and streams that hold ducks. Common dabbling ducks include wood ducks, mallards, teal and black ducks, with common diving ducks being ring-necked ducks, goldeneyes, buffleheads and mergansers.

There is also good field shooting for Canada geese, with early seasons for mostly resident birds. A morning on the rugged coast hunting sea ducks is another unforgettable experience. Imagine being perched on a ledge or bobbing in a boat with sea smoke all around while eiders, scoters and long-tailed ducks buzz the decoys. Whether you prefer to spend a crisp fall day with dogs chasing grouse or get up early to set decoys and blinds in time to catch ducks or geese moving at sunrise, Maine offers some of the best wingshooting anywhere.

Upland-Game & Waterfowl Hunting

The Guided Experience

Many hunters consider Maine one of the country’s last best places for upland birds. The vast tracts of land in the northern part of the state hold ruffed grouse and migratory woodcock. Of course, the hunting isn’t easy, as birds often are found in and around grown-up clear-cuts, old orchards and farm fields, requiring that hunters log many miles while busting brush and pushing through alder swales. With a limited fall season—the month of October and half of November for woodcock and October through December for grouse—hunters want to

32

maximize their opportunities, and guides know the best coverts and habitat types to explore. (Just don’t be surprised if you are asked to put on a blindfold before being led to their favorite spots . . . .) Similarly with ducks and geese, guides know the places that have produced consistently through the years, and they will have scouted to make sure the birds are in. There’s no better feeling than to be relaxing with a steaming cup of coffee and a limit of black or wood ducks as you watch the sun creep higher in the sky and birds continue to pour into the decoys. If it’s a classic Maine sea-duck hunt you’re after, hiring a guide is really the only way to go. Not only will a guide have the specialized equipment (such as a boat and strings of eider, scoter and/or long-tailed-duck decoys) but also the necessary knowledge of tides, navigation and how to set up on or around the islands and ledges birds frequent. The ocean during the late season can be unforgiving, and you want to put your trust in someone with the expertise and experience to take you out and get you back safely. Just bring your coldweather gear and a thirst for adventure. —JOE HEALY

Christi Holmes

With either upland-bird or waterfowl hunts, the common catalysts to these pursuits are canine companions—which makes a great case for hiring a guide with dogs that can point or flush ruffed grouse and woodcock or retrieve ducks and geese. A classic upland-bird hunt in Maine, similar to hunting pheasants in the Midwest, quail in the South or mountain grouse in the West, involves a dog finding the game followed by the hunter being afforded a shot at the flushed bird . . . and hopefully by the bird being slipped into a game pouch. When waterfowling on Maine’s countless bodies of water or along the coast, a guide may call birds within range, and then, assuming the shot is true, a dog will retrieve the quarry to hand.

Freshwater Fishing 38


If you like freshwater fishing, Maine is the place to be. In fact, more than 90 percent of all remaining wild brook trout in the US are found in Maine. Brookies are fun to catch with a fly rod, and you can spend a glorious day wading in small streams or casting from a boat for them.

Christi Holmes

Maine is a great place to find other varieties of trout as well. Brown and rainbow trout are most abundant in the southern part of the state, and they also are found in two of Maine’s largest rivers: the Kennebec and Penobscot. Lake trout, also known as togue, can be found throughout the state.

salmon populations, while many others are stocked. Maine is nationally known for its excellent bass fishing. Largemouth bass lurk along the weedy shores of shallow lakes and ponds, while smallmouths tend to hide along the rocky shorelines of clear ponds and rivers. The lakes and ponds of Maine are home to yellow and white perch as well. These smaller, spiny fish are great for family fishing trips or first-time anglers.

Landlocked salmon swim in more than a hundred lakes in Maine. Several of these lakes—Sebago, West Grand, Sebec and Green—also harbor native landlocked

Freshwater Fishing

The Guided Experience

“Did you see that?” the guide asks her client of the vanished hopper. The client nods. He readies his line, and then tosses a popping bug toward the grassy shore. On the first pause the smallmouth inhales the fly. After a short fight, the bass is landed, cradled for a photograph and released. Just then a mature bald eagle drops from its riverside perch, soaring out over the river and over the boat. The human observers watch in awe until the bird disappears. Maine waters hold stories. Generations of anglers and guides have fished here, returning season after season, keeping the stories alive. Open a Maine Atlas & Gazetteer, and you’ll find on every page numerous bodies of fresh water: rivers snaking south, highelevation ponds, expansive lakes. It is cliché but also true that you could spend two lifetimes fishing

Maine waters and still not fish them all. The state’s freshwater fishing options are that diverse. Maine Guides are famous for their work ethic, their meticulously prepared shore lunches as well as their knowledge of the waters they fish and the species that they catch. To guide in Maine is to carry a certain responsibility: The best guides want to catch fish just as much, if not more, than you do. They also want to share their knowledge: to show you the best knots, give casting suggestions, help identify wildlife and point out historic landmarks you otherwise might miss. Often what you remember most from a guided trip is the unexpected. Sure, you recall that bragging-size brook trout or leaping salmon. What you might remember most clearly, though, is the bull moose wading in the pond at dusk, or the close-up loon encounter or the swimming-hole dip at the end of a hot day. You might remember the brief rainstorm spent huddled but dry beneath the guide’s tarp or the sharing of fish stories. In the future you may return because of the fishing, but most likely it will be for the unexpected and for the bond you’ve created on the water. —RYAN BROD

In a pool on the Magalloway River, in Maine’s northwest corner, a large brook trout sips a mayfly from the surface. Farther east, on Moosehead Lake, a fat landlocked salmon slashes a school of smelt 20 feet down in the thermocline. Along the bank of the Penobscot River a grasshopper skitters crosscurrent and vanishes in the flushing swirl of a four-pound smallmouth.

Saltwater Fishing 50


onthewater.com

Maine’s rocky coast and tidal waters offer a variety of fishing options, from striped bass and mackerel to tuna and bluefish. Stripers spend time along the coast from late spring to early fall. You are likely to find these fish in the early morning or evening when the light is low. Hungry for whatever comes their way, they can be caught with flies, lures or live bait. Mackerel provide a great “can’t fail” experience. Inhabiting Maine waters from May to October, they can be found almost anywhere the water is more than 10 feet deep. These small fish are a great option for beginning anglers as well as those looking for a fun day catching lots of fish or a family outing with young kids.

south of Penobscot Bay in mid-summer. Fiercefighting fish, they will eagerly grab a bait or lure and put up an exhilarating battle. Just watch those teeth when they get into the boat! For the ultimate deep-sea sportfishing experience, there is nothing like a tuna-fishing adventure. Tuna can grow to be huge, and one fish caught in Maine weighed more than 800 pounds. Imagine reeling in something like that!

Bluefish occasionally arrive in coastal waters

Saltwater Fishing

The Guided Experience

Each spring around Mother’s Day striped bass appear, seemingly overnight, along the southernmost shore. As they’ve been doing for eons, stripers push farther north to Casco Bay, Harpswell Peninsula, the mouth of the Kennebec River and beyond. “Schoolies”—fish less than 20 inches long—show first. They are happy to take a lure or small fly. By early June their larger brethren arrive. Some mature stripers exceed 40 inches—trophy fish—and until mid-October they haunt river mouths, beaches, tidal marshes and bays. They push baitfish against rocks, sip sand eels and suck up crabs flushed on the tide. They occupy the minds of spinfishermen and fly-casters alike. Maine Guides who pursue stripers have the knowledge of tidal patterns and forage food that often determine an angler’s success. They know the best baits, lures, flies, knots and terminal tackle based on the month, time of day and location. They also

are trained, astute navigators familiar with unseen hazards, even when fog banks diminish visibility. There is something comforting stepping aboard a guide’s boat first thing in the morning. Rods are rigged and ready, and the air is full of possibilities. Perhaps you’ll start the day tossing plugs for stripers. Or maybe you’ll head offshore to chase tuna or cast to blue sharks in a chum slick. Or you’ve brought your children for a day of rod-bending action on mackerel. Your guide takes one of the small mackerel, threads a hook through it, and then free-lines it into the tide. Soon the rod doubles over. A big striper has found the bait and is now heading for deeper water. You take turns reeling it in. Once the striper is released, your guide fires up the outboard. You circle small rocky islands where harbor seals are sunning themselves in small groups. Lobstermen in orange bibs wave a greeting as they haul traps near the ledges. Atop a far island sits a small lighthouse. Your guide tells a story of a shipwreck centuries ago. You realize it’s different out here on the water. It’s more than just fishing . . . and the day is just getting started. —RYAN BROD

Christi Holmes

Lighthouses, brightly colored lobster buoys, fishing boats, dramatic cliffs: You’ve seen the images of Maine’s coastline in glossy magazines. Perhaps you’ve driven north along Route 1, hugging the Atlantic, wondering what kind of angling opportunities await outside the breakwater . . . .

Canoeing & Kayaking 56


Jerry Monkman

To be surrounded by Maine’s gorgeous landscape and get that view from a canoe or kayak can be a truly transformational experience. And whether you prefer kayaking the numerous bays along Maine’s coast or a pristine inland lake like Rangeley or Moosehead, you can do so to your heart’s—and mind’s—content. Maine Professional Guides Association members offer a wide range of guided small-boat activities— from traditional multi-day canoe camping trips on rivers as well known as the Allagash and Saint John to afternoon getaways on quiet coastal waters to paddleboard outings on warm summer days.

a loon as it dives for dinner. Or picture paddling along the rocky coast, observing the myriad sea birds and perhaps spying a harbor seal sunning itself on a ledge. You don’t have to be an experienced paddler to partake in such adventures, as most guides welcome beginners and will supply not only the watercraft, paddles and life preservers, but also the knowhow to get you drawing water with confidence.

Get on the board, find your balance point and stroke, and you’ll be covering water in no time. And don’t forget to take time to admire the beauty all around you. A guide can help make this possiblee. —JOE HEALY

You can fish, lay back and relax, or view wildlife such as bald eagles and deer. Perhaps you’ll learn a better way to paddle in calm waters or negotiate rapids. Maybe you’ll even be taught the technique of poling a canoe. Then you may be treated to a traditional shore lunch— one that may even include your catch of the day! Want to experience an interesting form of exercise in a natural setting? Stand-up paddleboarding on an inland

Dave Conley-Canoe the Wild

Whatever your pace and speed, a guide can take you to new vistas inland or off the coast via canoe, freshwater kayak, sea kayak or stand-up paddleboard (SUP). Guides relish the opportunity to show off Maine’s natural beauty from a perspective not typically enjoyed. Gliding quietly through the water allows you to take in the sights and sounds of the pristine environment and observe undisturbed wildlife.

Hiking, Camping, Etc. 64


Cody Barry

Maine offers millions of acres for outdoor recreation, and MPGA members offer a variety of opportunities to enjoy it. If you seek adventure in steep places, the state’s rock- and ice-climbing opportunities are well known. For those desiring a little less adrenaline, Maine offers nearly limitless hiking and backpacking—from the famed Appalachian Trail and the Hundred Mile Wilderness to day hikes along the coast and myriad offshore islands. Overnighting beneath the stars is a wonderful family activity, and what better way to do it than with a woods-savvy guide to help set up camp and start the fire? Memories of singalongs and roasting marshmallows will last a lifetime.

Wildlife watchers—whether they are looking to see a moose or check several bird species off their life list—will find Maine a bountiful destination. A guide who knows the habits and habitats of various animals can provide the local knowledge and understanding to make these experiences possible. Maine winters offer still more ways to experience the great outdoors: from cross-country skiing among snow-covered fir trees to trekking on snowshoes, enjoying the scenery and searching for animal tracks on the trail. You even can travel by dogsled, spending an afternoon skimming over the snow behind a team of enthusiastic huskies.

Hiking, Camping, Etc.

The Guided Experience

You and your friends are canoeing and camping the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, more than 90 miles of backcountry rivers and lakes with dozens of campsites along the shore. Your guide has packed raingear, tarps, first-aid kits, fire-starting supplies, fishing gear, waterproof maps, bug spray . . . the list goes on. He has acted as trip supervisor, part-time chef, storyteller, comedian and full-time steward of the environment. You and your friends have learned the best way to build a fire, long-lined a canoe through rapids, found river rocks with fossils in them, and cleaned and cooked wild trout over an open fire. You’ve considered the cost of camping gear and

66

transportation. There is relief and convenience in using the guide’s gear, trusting his preparedness so that you can enjoy camping without worry. You walk to the fire and warm your hands, looking over the map of the day’s journey with the guide. After nine days together you consider him a friend as well. Camping and hiking in Maine go together like lobster meat and melted butter. There’s Katahdin, the jewel of Baxter State Park. Perhaps Katahdin is on your bucket list, but you’re not sure which trail to take. Maybe you’ve dreamed of hiking the mountain in winter. Maybe you’ve traced your finger along a map, following the Hundred Mile Wilderness—a notoriously rugged tract of Appalachian Trail from Monson north to Abol Bridge. What’s the safest month to traverse it? How much gear do you need to bring and how much food? A guide knows. Rock climbing with an ocean backdrop at Acadia; searching for moose-antler sheds in the western mountains in spring; picking edible mushrooms on the floor of an old-growth forest; fire-tower views atop 4,000-foot peaks, with lakes and ponds shimmering in the distance. Maine holds hiking opportunities for all ages and abilities. —RYAN BROD

Dave Conley - Canoe the Wild

Imagine waking to a loon call and the slosh of a wading moose. You unzip your tent and peer out, the sun not yet up. The air is crisp; fog hangs over the Allagash River. Your guide is already up, and he has lit a riverside campfire, kindling crackling and snapping. Once your friends wake you’ll gather for coffee and breakfast; but they’re tired from paddling. You’re miles from the nearest town and, mercifully, any type of cell service. There is no text-message buzzing or email dinging. The only sounds you hear are those of wilderness. The air smells of cedar and firewood.

Snowmobiling & 4-Wheeling 72


Paul Cyr

Because of its diversity of terrain—from deep woods to mountains to open farm country—Maine is a premier destination for off-road enthusiasts. Networks of interconnected trails allow for exploring by ATV (all-terrain vehicle) or snowmobile. Such activities afford great opportunities for wildlife watching and are exciting ways to get to places that aren’t accessible by car and are difficult to reach on foot. In the winter Maine’s extensive network of snowmobile trails provides access to beautiful landscapes transformed by snow and ice and offers the excitement that comes with making the first tracks in freshly fallen powder. Many of these trails are groomed regularly and have clear signage.

Even if you don’t own a snowmobile, a number of guides can provide the machines, equipment and clothing—as well as the necessary instruction—to get you cruising with confidence. Of course, safety is of paramount importance, and snowmobilers need to exercise caution by sledding at safe speeds and watching for animals in the trail. So whether you choose to set out on an ATV or a snow machine, miles of adventure await. And don’t forget that few things are more enjoyable than ending a day on the trail by kicking back in a sauna or hot tub.

Snowmobiling & 4-Wheeling

The Guided Experience

On a snowmobile or ATV, you’ll need specialized gear that you probably don’t have stored in your utility closet at home: a helmet with face shield or goggles; an insulated one-piece suit or insulated top and bottom; pack boots; and heavy gloves with articulated thumbs, so you can throttle up and apply the brake with the other hand. Many outfitters provide this gear as part of a package, so be sure to ask when booking a trip. Of course, you can bring your own machine or rent one from most guides or outfitters. Also know that riding a snowmobile or ATV, even on groomed trails, is a serious workout. You’ll be using muscles you probably didn’t know you had. To get the most out of your trip, be sure to work on some stretching and aerobic exercise beforehand. Odd as it may seem, being in proper condition is

74

important as you shift your weight while turning and bumping over trails on a multi-mile trek. Speaking of exercise, you’ll need to exercise caution and courtesy on Maine’s trail network. You won’t be alone out there—sharing the byways with other riders as well as wildlife like moose, which sometimes use the groomed trails to navigate. A guide will help you learn the ins and outs of motorized riding and help you find your way through the intricate trail system. Not only that, but should you or your machine experience difficulties, it’s nice to have the piece of mind of being with a guide with mechanical know-how, survival skills and first-aid training. Remember: The Maine woods in winter are beautiful but also demand respect. Check out atvmaine.com or mesnow.com for specialized information. —JOE HEALY

Sitting on a snowmobile, revving the throttle on the sled’s handlebars with your thumb, you feel the power of 500cc waiting to be let loose. And consider all the places you can go in Maine, with an extensive network of groomed trails tended to by numerous snowmobile and ATV clubs, ensuring access to forests, farm fields, meadows and in the winter frozen lakes, ponds and more.

The Guided Experience After telling the Guide what we were looking for, he asked to meet us the next morning at a boat launch on a nearby tidal river. We arrived in fog and drizzle, but luckily the Guide had everything we needed, including raingear and even warm jackets for the girls. After introductions and some quick instruction, we were off. We had not gotten far from the harbor when we were fortunate to see seals pulled out on a rock. The Guide was able to maneuver the boat for a closer look before we left the relaxed creatures to their morning naps. Soon the light fog became thick. If we had had a boat of our own, finding our way would have been nearly impossible. It was one of those times when having someone who really knows where he is and what needs to happen makes all the difference.

80

A short time later we stopped to watch a lobsterman haul a couple of traps while the Guide chatted with him about the weather and lobster numbers. Continuing on, we came across a small pod of harbor porpoises and watched them breach for a few minutes before disappearing. Our Guide noticed a flock of terns diving into the water and feeding on small fish. He eased the boat closer, and soon the terns were plopping into the water catching small herring only a few feet from us. As we looked into the clear water, we could see schools of mackerel chasing the fish that the birds were feasting on. When that show was over, we turned and headed back toward the harbor, stopping along the way for each of us to catch a mackerel and have our picture taken. We arrived at the dock all too soon and could only marvel at the adventure we’d just had. It was something that would not have been possible without a knowledgeable Guide who understood exactly what we were looking for. —A HAPPY CLIENT

Ours was a family from Europe: mom, dad and two daughters. We wanted to see the Maine coast up close and personal. We were not sure where to start, but the owner of our rental cottage knew a local Guide and helped us connect.

Whitewater Rafting 86


Northern Outdoors

Maine is home to three big rivers—the Penobscot, Kennebec and Dead—that offer whitewater rafting. Experienced guides lead the trips, and they provide training in paddling techniques and safety. No experience is necessary, and all equipment is provided. The Penobscot River flows through Ripogenus Gorge, in the shadow of Katahdin. The thrill begins with Exterminator Rapids, the Staircase Rapids and Big Heater, and then it’s on to the narrow shoots and big drops of the Cribworks. There are 14 miles of excitement in all. The Kennebec offers 12 miles of action, starting at the dam below Harris Station and the steep-walled gorge of the Alleyway. You’ll tackle a succession of big

rapids and waves, such as Big Mama and Whitewasher, before dropping over Magic Falls and continuing through Dead Stream and Black Brook Rapids. The Dead River offers 16 miles of nearly continuous whitewater—the most in the East. From the putin below the horseshoe of Grand Falls you’ll be splashing through rapids named Humpty Dumpty, Elephant Rock, Minefield and Mile Long before hitting the biggest rapids at Poplar Falls. Anyone who enjoys the outdoors and is looking for adventure can raft. Maine rafts typically hold an eight-person crew and a guide. To protect the environmental quality of Maine’s rivers, the state limits the number of rafters each day.

Whitewater Rafting

The Guided Experience

“We flipped the raft right out of the gate,” she said. “It was the first weekend of the season during a water release, and it snowed. We actually were hot in our wetsuits, though.” After the brief dunking, the crew continued downriver to experience Exterminator Rapids and later several narrow shoots and drops. “We saw some scary rapids, but the guides did a good job organizing and orchestrating our paddling methods, so we got through the rapids no problem. At one point we got out of the rafts and went down

88

some waterfalls on our butts in our wetsuits. We had safety instructions and were told what to do if we fell out of the raft; so we felt safe.” After seeing a moose and its calf, the group paused for a shore lunch and later beached the rafts at the cabins where they were staying the night. My wife said she got a little angry early the next morning when someone started hammering boards. “Actually,” she laughed, “it turned out to be a pileated woodpecker pecking away, and it just sounded like someone hammering.” The second day the group rafted the Dead River. “It was fun and exciting,” my wife said. “So much so that we did it again the next year!” Another popular destination for rafting trips is the Kennebec River, one of the finest stretches of whitewater in the country. This, too, is a dam-release river, and trips are timed for maximum flow and enjoyment. For a oncein-a-lifetime experience, sign on with a qualified Maine Guide and get ready for a wet and wild ride —JOE HEALY Northeast Whitewater

On the scale of perceived degree of difficulty, rafting whitewater rapids may seem a daunting challenge—a freshwater rodeo ride where one wrong move can land you in the drink. Well, that’s actually part of the fun, particularly when you’re led by a professional Maine Guide, who will steer you away from any real danger as much as he or she can. My wife, not known to be a hardcore thrill-seeker, regales me with stories of a guided whitewater trip she took after college on the Penobscot and Dead rivers. Her group was in the safe hands of experienced Maine Guides, who launched them on the Penobscot in the spring during a dam release. She wore the provided wetsuit and the required buoyancy jacket and helmet, but it wasn’t long before she was swimming.

• Maine Wildlife Conservation Council (MWCC) led the fight that defeated the anti-hunting lobby twice on the ballot in Maine. • Our mission is to defend, protect and promote opportunities for all sportsmen and women to hunt, fish and trap in Maine. • We support the North American Model of Wildlife Management funded by hunters, anglers and trappers. Our sole purpose is to raise money that can be used to protect your hunting, fishing and trapping rights. Money that can help defeat the next anti-hunting ballot issue. The war chest is the most important thing that MWCC is doing. As 2014 becomes farther and farther away, it’s critical to remember why MWCC exists. Our best and most dependable weapon is money. If we have a strong war chest, we will be ready to defend our heritage. MWCC is critical to the future of hunting in Maine and needs your help. MWCC brings together Maine’s sporting organizations, businesses and individuals to create a fund that enables Maine sportsmen and women to defend against the next referendum and to promote a constitutional amendment protecting hunting and trapping in the future. We need everyone’s support!

Please consider helping us grow the war chest by donating online at
