Maine has excellent moose hunting - if you get one of the 2700 resident or 300 non-res. permits. Bulls over 50" are not an unreasonable expectation. Deer are large bodied common to northern latitude whitetails. State record 355 lbs. dressed. Last time I checked B&C records, Maine had more B&C bucks than all other N.E. states down to Penn. and Maryland combined. They are rather well populated below Route 2, and become very spread out as you go North. Lots of black bears. Turkeys are really coming on, with a strong population in the southern counties. I generally ask landowner permission, but unless land is posted, it's OK to hunt it. Blocking access to "fish or fowl" on a pond or lake is strictly forbidden by virtue of a very long standing colonial law that dates from when Maine was a territory of Massachusetts. Land leased by a group of hunters for their own use is basically non-existant in Maine.
