I highly recommend Turnpike Ridge Outfitters located in both Maine and Quebec. I know theres a few other guys on here who have hunted with them as well.
No problem, PM'd you my info if you have any questions, feel free to call me.brd1016 said:I'll do that. They will definately be on the short list and getting a call from us. Thanks!

I have recommended to many people and they have all sent me emails thanking me for the advice. The staff is awesome, the lodging is awesome, can't think of one thing to complain about!
7 hunters in camp, all saw multiple bears, all tagged out. You can also pay a little extra to fish the Miramichi - outstanding fishing. Plus, you can grouse hunt. You don't get up early, can go grouse hunting or fishing during the day, come back for lunch, then hunt for bear till dark! I have been saving to go back up. Kevin and his staff is outstanding and all they want to do is make sure you hunt is successful. Not only by taking a bear, but the entire trip is fun, telling stories, feels like an PA hunting camp I was in - true joy!
The biggest bear taken that week was well over 400 lbs with a bow the first night.
Tell Kevin Chris Carr sent you. We went back in 2008 and we still are in touch - great guy!
