A special message from Master Guide Hank Goodman on February 28 …

Opportunity to hunt in week 2 (September 1-8, 2019) due to a cancellation!

This is our most popular week, and openings are few and far between.

Here’s what Hank has to say about this and what other openings are available.


The 2016 Black Bear season was excellent and produced trophy bears.

This is the second day of the opening week of the 2013 Black Bear season at North Country Lodge. Click on the video to see what was happening!!!


North Country Lodge had another great Black Bear Hunt in 2012. Take a look at the video and maybe we will see you in 2013.


After 27 years of guiding Black Bear hunters in the great state of Maine, North Country Lodge once again had a very successful hunt. This year North Country Lodge hunters successfully bagged 28 Black Bears and sighted 52 in just 3 weeks. When hunting at North Country Lodge you will find accommodations to be second to none. The guides are professional with years of experience to offer. The hunt includes accommodations, meals prepared from expert cooks, maid service, transportation to and from the hunting grounds, care of your game to include butchering, deboning and wrapping of the meat. In this video you see an example of what we can offer you.

Teresa Hodge – 2009

Hi Everyone,

One of the most important questions  that we get from our hunters is “What are the laws on transporting my guns across state lines?”.  So, for those of you that are not familiar with federal laws on transporting firearms check out this NRA website for more information.

Here at North Country Lodge our hunters have come from around the world including – Germany, Mexico, Norway and Canada.   And, of course just about every state.  Just this past 2009 season we have had some great people hunting with us from California, Florida and our good friend Teresa Hodge from Texas.  Teresa made her way from Texas to Maine in the third week of the hunting season and was thrilled to harvest her first black bear with us.

Check out our 2009 black bear gallery .

For those of you that harvested a bear with us in 2008 and participated in the Bear Aging Program with the Inland Fish and Wildlife Department of Maine.  Check out their report.  It’s studies like this that will only increase our outstanding population of Black Bears.

So we invite you to join us at North Country Lodge on your next hunting trip.

Happy Hunting,

Hank
