What RyanR said.
Wear PA-level orange and you will be in compliance with Maine's [lesser] orange requirements. Even during those parts of October when moose is closed and orange is therefore optional, it's a good idea to wear it.
If you get a recent edition of the Maine Atlas and Gazetteer, you'll note rumpled orange-brown coloring on some areas. Those are "recently disturbed", as in "recently logged". You can also use the Google Maps satellite imagery to get a good idea where the loggers were more recently. You want 10 or so year old regrowth, i.e., early successional habitat. Birches, jack firs, alders. Paths near trickle brooks are good because the birds stay there to get water. And it's thicker. Once you learn to recognize it from both the satellite and looking at it on the ground (i.e., connecting them), you'll have an easier time of finding good covers.
Also, be aware that not only is a lot of the cover in logged over areas slash (where you can easily get injured), but also there are usually skidder ruts (tire tracks 1-2 feet deep) where you can very easily get hurt.
It's an excellent idea to carry an extra spare tire and tire repair kits, as the logging roads eat tires. Some of them run over shale, which is known to slice the dickens out of tires, especially when they've been recently graded. I know a guy who wrecked 2 tires that way inside the first mile behind a North Maine Woods gate.
Also recognize that grouse will come out to get grit for their crops late in the afternoon, so keep an eye for places where finer gravel and sand are on the road surface.
Jackman is a nice little town, but they roll up the sidewalks there about 5-6 pm and the only places that remain open are the bars. Schedule your provisioning accordingly. Fill your tank at every opportunity.
If you run into someone dragging/loading a moose, an offer of help is a courtesy appreciated, even if they say "no thanks". It's heavy, hard work.
