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.


Blog Notice 2017



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.

Okay, so we all know about the coyote and the trouble they cause.  But, how much is your state doing to control them?  I am happy to say that the people and organizations of Maine are doing their best.  From night hunting to the trapping season to winter bait hunting around designated deer yards.  In the past few months the coyote situation has been top priority in Maine.  There is the average hunter doing his part and there are organizations like the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, Maine Trapper’s Association and the Maine Professional Guide’s Association.  Not only are they killing coyotes they are also educating hunters through seminars and DVDs on where and when to do this.  It is one thing to take a coyote, but it is another to take a coyote at the right time of year and location.  This is the best way to cut back on their breeding or to decrease the pack during the winter.  I am starting to see clubs putting on more hunting tournaments now than I have ever seen in the past.  We have to say that the eastern coyote is truly an amazing animal with the ability to survive anywhere.  But, putting that aside they have to be controlled.  I am happy to say that the sportsmans of Maine are finally taking a step forward in the right direction.  We all have to do our part.

Happy Hunting!

Sarah - Trophy Pike 2009

Well,  the snow is melting and it’s getting warmer outside,  time to put away the shovel and break out the fishing pole. Spring is in the air and that makes me think of large Northern Pike and Walleye. My brother Bert and I will be leaving in a few weeks to open our fishing resort in Northern Ontario (Flint Wilderness Resort). We have owned the resort for the last twenty years and have made many improvements. From the fully equipped cabins to the 14 ft. Deluxe Lunds. The Arctic watershed has some of the finest fishing in the world. We fish a total of 13 lakes and maintain a newly renovated outpost on Flint Lake, a 14 mile boat ride from the main resort. This outpost sleeps 8 and has electric lights, running water, range and refrigerator. The fishing on Klotz Lake can handle everyone from the serious angler who is looking for the 20 lb. Pike or 10lb Walleye and the kids who just want to put a sucker on the end of a bobber and fish the weed line.  So, I invite you and your family to come north to our beautiful fishing resort and experience the fishing you have only dreamed about.

Hope to see you there!!

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
