Big game hunting is our specialty and guiding is our full time livelihood. But most importantly, outfitting and guiding is not a job to us - it is our passion!


OUR COMMITMENT:  We take our guiding seriously. We are committed to giving every one of our hunters the hunt of a lifetime, one to enjoy and always remember. Our goal is to make your hunting trip safe, productive and memorable. We hope to make it the best hunt and vacation you have ever had.

Stony Brook Outfitters Combo Hunts
Black Bear w/ Hounds & Moose Combo Hunt

Hunt Oct 6th through 12th (WMD zones 7-8-12-13 & 14 only)
Moose and Whitetail Deer Combo Hunt

November 1st through 30th (WMD zone 16 only)
This hunt is done during the overlap week of our bear hunt with hounds and the moose hunt. This combo hunt is booked as a bear hunt with hounds and can be changed to a combination hunt when and if you pull a tag. This means that you will not be required to put up any deposit for the moose hunt until you actually get drawn. The cost of this hunt is $2350 for the dog hunt plus a reduced price of $1650 for the moose hunt. If you have a sub-permitee (a second person who accompanies you on the hunt and can shoot the moose in place of the permit holder) the fee for this person is $2350 for the bear hunt (if they too want to hunt bear) plus $1000 for the moose hunt. A non-hunting companion fee is $800.



Notice: There have been many enhanced changes to the Moose Lottery. The bonus point system has been greatly improved so the longer you participate in the lottery the better your chances become. In addition, applications can now be done manually as well as online.  Paper applications can be obtained by request.  The online application process will be available starting in early January.  (http://www5.informe.org/online/moose/)
This November hunt offers the opportunity to harvest either a bull or a cow moose in prime moose country. The earlier in November the better the chance that the Bulls will still be in the late part of the rut, and the guide may be able to call one in. This is a six day privately guided, on the ground, stalking hunt which provides the hunter the opportunity to combo this hunt with a deer hunt. The hunt would be booked as a regular 5 day guided deer hunt and can be changed to a combination hunt when and if you pull a moose tag. This means you will not be required to put up any deposit for the moose hunt until you actually get drawn. If you do not pull a tag then the cost of your regular 5 day guided deer hunt would remain at $850. If you draw the permit, the cost of the 6 day combo hunt would be $2150 for the moose hunt plus a reduced price of $650 for the deer hunt. The total for the combo hunt would be $2750. If you have a sub-permitee (a second person who accompanies you on the hunt and can shoot the moose in place of the permit holder), the fee for this person is $1050 for the moose hunt plus a reduced price of $650 for the deer hunt (if they too want to hunt deer). The combo total for the sub-permittee would be $1600. A non-hunting companion fee is $800.
Moose permit winners who wish to swap their permit with another moose permit winner will need to do all their own work to identify and contact potential permit winners to swap with. If you are interested in swapping the tag you win for one in one of our zones - visit http://www.mooseswap.com.. For more information, see the moose hunting section of our website.

Hunter to Guide Ratios
spacer
Maine Hunts
North American Hunting
Club Approved
Although there is no limit on the number of black bear hunters a guide can put out on stand, we choose to limit our hunter to guide ratio to 5 to 1. We reserve this same ratio for our white tail deer hunts. The moose hunt is a 1 to 1 ratio unless there is a sub-permitee, which raises that ratio to 2 to 1. The State of Maine has an established limit of 5 to 1 on black bear hound hunts, but we personalize our hunt by limiting our ratio of 2 to 1. In addition, although the state has set no limit, we limit our bobcat hunts with dogs to this same 2 to 1 ratio.

New Brunswick Hunts

We abide by the established 3 to 1 ratio set by New Brunswick law on our Spring black bear hunts. Our self-imposed ratios ensure that we are able to enhance the hunting experience and make sure that the hunter is receiving the personalized service we are known for.
Stony Brook has been an approved outfitter by the NAHC since 1997 and has consistently had more recommendation reports each year than any other guide or outfitter in Maine or New Brunswick.
A Cut Above The Rest

We have been catering to bear, deer, moose and bobcat hunters since 1980. We take pride in providing a rewarding and successful hunting experience. We take you to where the game is – no matter what the cost. Our bear stands are strategically located in prime bear territory. We scout out active scrapes and rubs for our deer hunters and keep a keen eye open for areas where the bull moose like to feed. We will travel wherever necessary to optimize the best snow conditions for our bobcat hunts.
Licenses and Permits
Stony Brook Outfitters sells you your licenses and permits right at the lodges. You do not have to go out to a store or worry about having to apply for a draw for your Black Bear, White Tail Deer, or Bobcat hunting licenses, as these are available right at Stony Brook Lodge when you arrive. Moose hunting licenses are an exception, as this hunt requires a Lottery draw controlled by the State of Maine. New Brunswick Spring black bear hunting licenses are also available right at the lodge as well. Fishing licenses are also available at the same time.

All firearms must be registered at the Canadian Border at a cost of $25 Canadian using the Non-resident firearm Declaration. To download the form, type in the following URL or click on this link: http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/form-formulaire/pdfs/5589-eng.pdf
