The bear hunting in northern Maine is fantastic and Patten, Maine is the heart of it all.

The bear is the most elusive of all big game animals. He sneaks into the shadows of the woods and is seldom seen. We offer well-baited stands from which you can see this great trophy at his best.

Our fall hunts are truly memorable -- the cool nights, the frosty mornings and the beauty of changing leaves will inspire you for six great days of hunting. The time you spend in the stand is entirely up to you.

We also provide complete skinning and preparation of your trophy. Patten Hunting Lodge ensures that your catch is well taken care of, and your hunt is as satisfying as it can be.
