Looking for hunting access in the extended archery zones

:idea: Looking for ground to hunt in extended zones. Live in Houlton but willing to travel.....bow hunter through and through. I have hunted 33 of my 45 years. Looking to cash in on extra deer allowed. Added bow to my arsenal to hunt more areas and get more game. Don't know too many people down in the zones......any suggestions? I also head a Christian Hunting Club in Houlton at my church. I am looking to scout areas for the club hunters to access as well, as they acquire bows and the skills needed.
Part of my club responsibilities include education and promotion of ethical hunting. I am looking for a long lasting relationship with area landowners. Willing to discuss a hunting lease or access fee for the right place.

I can't help you out that I know of but I certainly will keep my ears open and get back to you if I do
There are some guys on here kickin' around who might know...
Who do I talk to that runs affairs in Bangor to get access to the land around BIA. There is a stretch of land running west of the airport and includes the Hermon Bog. That is well within the extended archery zone there. Would I contact the airport or the council...who on the council would address my need for written consent to hunt there with my Bow.
That's a good question. I don't know if that is posted or not. I would start by contacting the airport. My brother inlaw is a pilot and I will be seeing him tomorrow afternoon. Let me chat with him about it and get back to you.
I talked to my brother inlaw today and he is positive that stretch of woods is owned by the airport. He says you should contact them about it.
Anybody from the "Wells" area here!!!!!!!! Looking to hunt below Bangor .......any guesses who would give me access?
If you want to come way down to southen maine I'd concidering allowing a few people to hunt my 80 acres. I wasn't there in October and December but my two of my buddies took 5 deer total with a bow in those two months. As long as nobody shot any skippers I wouldn't have a problem with it. Also, if you wanted to keep it in the Houlton area, I'd be willing to possibly let a few bow hunters there too. I'd have to lease the houlton hunts though.
WE have to talk !!!!!!!! Both ideas work for me.......

Where down south............? And how much to lease in Houlton area?

Send a PM with details if you don't want to post.......or email me at :

Trying to get a line on Charlie.......names seems familiar. How much per acre to lease access/ or how much to lease flat rate?

How about Supper at my house..........I think I can scare up some moose/bear/elk/duck/rabbit or what ever. Shoot some pool and then show you around Houlton.......quick trip......little town.

Best store in town is Macs Trading Post..........but we have a Walmart!!!! And all of the usuals......your wife would like the Malls in PI/Bangor...mine does. Up here we know we have to travel to get any deals.

Meant to email sooner but got in late.......saw this when I logged on...figured better now than later.
Sounds like a plan! We can talk more about the land then!
What would you like ..........deer ...bear.......elk........etc.......?

Your Choice!!

Ever had Buffalo? MMMMMMMMMMMMgood
Thats a hard choice! I'd have to do with the deer though!
Steak...stew..or roast?
OK I am getting hungry - be right back... :twitch:

Hey guys every year My church group hosts a huge Game Supper where people can come in and try dozens of game dishes. I'll send you all an invite.......but it's not until January 2007!!!!!
I was just doing a little thinking... My mind often wonder from time to time. You might also want to check into getting a group of people into buying a bit of land to start a hunt club with. Land and taxes are really cheap that way and I believe that there is a way to get some tax breaks from it as well. Just a thought!
I thought of that also.......but so far no luck getting the investment needed.
But have had alot of interest in locating a lease. It gives the land owner an additional income for very little in return. Talking to a guy in Poland about a lease......he wants to limit the kill/hunters to 5 deer or 5 hunters. He has a piece of about 40 acres. There are another 100+ acres around him that are posted.......deer all over the place.
