Gateway Recreation and Lodging is located within hunting distance of four of the most productive moose hunting zones in Maine (Zones 7, 8, 13, 14); see map below. The success rate for all hunters in Maine in 2000 was 85%.
A hunter who stayed with us during the 1999 moose hunting season saw 17 bulls in Zone 8 during the first two days of hunting. He took a cow on the third day (cow only permit).
Active woodlands operations in these zones provide excellent feed sources for moose as well as good opportunities to locate moose. The logging roads provide public access to many excellent hunting locations.
For more detailed information concerning the 2003 Moose Hunt in Maine, Application information, seasons, etc.; visit the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Moose Hunting page.
The Deadline for the 2005 Moose Hunting Applications is April 1st!
Zones 8, 13, and 14 are accessible within 5 minutes from your cabins at Gateway Recreation and Lodging.
We spend numerous days in the forests of these zones locating moose and other game. We can guide you to some of the most productive areas in these zones.
The 2005 Maine moose season in these zones runs from October 10 to October 15.
