Coyote hunting in Maine is an exciting challenge. Unlike other states, Maine’s thick forest cover gives coyotes many opportunities to hide or escape.
Foggy Mountain’s coyote hunts are great fun, and help reduce the severe predatory losses that Maine’s deer population has suffered.
Come harvest your first Maine coyote.
Foggy Mountain offers two coyote hunts:
- Hound Hunts for Coyote – Foggy Mountain has the tactics and hounds to get it done. You will hunt over our hounds that are equipped with GPS collars so we can keep up with the race and get our sights on the elusive coyote. All shots will be at close range where a shot gun is the preferred and most effective weapon.
- Stand Hunts for Coyote – A coyote hunt over bait is from a comfortable shooting shack equipped with a propane heater. It is common to see multiple coyotes at the bait at one time. Coyotes may be hunted 24 hours a day from December 16 through August 31st. Hunting in conjunction with moon phases helps take advantage of the moonlight on the snow. A rifle equipped with a scope works best.
Coyote Hunt includes:
- One to five days hunting for one or two hunters.
- Full guide service.
- Transportation during the hunt. All gas and vehicle expense.
- Land Access “private land” and insurance fees.
- Optional: Housekeeping accommodations (meals not included) can be provided.
