Maine Land Sales Specialists



October is traditionally the start of the hunting season in Maine.  This is when hunters ply the woods and waters of the State for small game and waterfowl.  The hunting season actually started last month for bear, local geese and urban deer.  The month of November is deer season when the sport really steps into high gear.  Grouse and inland duck season continue into December.  Sea duck hunting winds down in mid January and the long hare season is finally over at the end of March.

Maine is a rural state with ample game populations.  Just outside the built up portions of the city and towns, there are millions of acres that potentially can be hunted.  Some of this land is owned by the State and is open to hunting.  Private land can be hunted as well; provided that it is not posted.  Over the past several decades, the amount of private land available for hunting has been decreasing.  This puts more pressure on the State lands.

Some folks have discovered a way to guarantee their hunting future.  They bought Maine LAND.  This is a great way to preserve your hunting heritage and ensure that you and your children have a place to hunt.  Maine land is relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to the rest of the eastern seaboard.

Wilderness Realty has been specializing in this type of land for 20 years.  Check out our inventory on our website ( or better yet call (207-947-7957) and talk with a knowledgeable broker.  All our brokers hunt and our DB has a college degree in Wildlife Management.

Some notable properties in our current listings:

Call about our unadvertised special in Solon (it’s not even on our website); nearly 200 acres with a stream, beaver ponds, hardwood ridge, and miles of trails.  If you don’t get us on the first try, leave a message.  We are probably out hunting and will get back to you after dark.
