If anyone puts in for this and gets selected, I can help (Master Maine Guide) for a fee of course, get setup, help locate etc or help someone find another reputable Maine Guide (free).

I believe Non residents do NOT need to purchase a license to enter the lottery, they do however, if selected, need to purchase one before they can hunt.

Most of the good moose areas are located in the northern areas of Maine with special emphasis in the North West.

Applications must be completed by 11:59 pm (ET) on May 14, 2010.

Moose Lottery drawing to be held at LL Bean, in Freeport, Maine, June 17, 2010.

Did you get one in New Brunswick?

I have never drawn myself in Maine, but, I have shot several from tribal land in the State. I have hopes of my son filling our Tribal household tag this year. He got his first bear at 13. He is 16 now and getting a Moose would make his year.

Yes... i took a nice bull. I used the rifle though due to the short 3 day season and lack of sighting during my 4 days scouting leading up to the opener.
Shot him 1st thing 2nd morning... great hunt... called him in like a giant turkey. Wish I had used my bow... shot him at about 20 yards...

What order would you advise for requesting districts? Advisable to list sub-permitees? What's the cost for a guide typically?

northern Maine focusing on north Western Maine.

The guide will cost around 2k, This would include the permitee, sub permitee and alternate and a week hunt. This is an average price. You might be able to find it cheaper or more expensive if you shop around.


Yes list sub-permitees.
