Grouse and Woodcock Hunts
October 1 brings the start of Grouse and Woodcock hunting in Maine and hunting wild game birds is one of our favorite activities. We specialize in wild ruffed grouse and migratory woodcock hunts. We do not hunt any raised birds. Our wild birds will challenge the best dogs around and our tight coverts will challenge the best shooters. We are not numbers oriented, but rather focus on the quality of the hunt, fair chase and good dog work. If all goes well, we get to eat a few birds in the dining room at dinner.
Weatherby’s sits on the edge of more than 1 million acres of forestland with hundreds of miles of gravel roads allowing access to some of the best Maine upland bird hunting in the east. Opportunities abound for hunting over dogs and coverts are suitable to both pointing and flushing breeds. Spend a day or a week chasing the king of all game birds in the grandeur of a downeast autumn.
Located in the heart of the Atlantic flyway, Weatherby’s also provides opportunities for high quality Maine woodcock hunting that at times can appear limitless. Whether in alder runs surrounding our countless wetlands, on aspen and birch studded hillsides, or around abandoned and overgrown farms and orchards, the whimsical and legendary timberdoodle is certain to entertain any upland hunter. Combine a day of Maine grouse and woodcock hunting, a local Registered Maine Guide, good dogs and the glory of a crisp fall day, and you are guaranteed an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.
