REVIEW Received 3/5/2014: I have been to Down East Outfitters twice now. The first time was a couple years ago. We then tried a couple other outfitters in Maine that were closer to our home state of VT/NY. After terrible experiences at the "other" outfitters we decided the drive was worth it and returned to Down East in February 2014. Let me tell you I would drive 20 hours to return. Both experiences were exceptional and we will be back every year! Stan and Carolan make it feel like you have known them for 30 years. Stan does everything possible to get you rabbits! Carolan should be a chef at a five star restaurant. There is not enough room to write all the positives, absolutely nothing negative about both experiences. Bottom line if your looking for a great outfitter, look no further!
Snowshoe Hare hunting in Maine is probably one of the most enjoyable and fun type hunts we offer. Hunting is done with well trained beagle hounds, which is usually fast paced and very exciting.
A Maine Snowshoe hare hunt is a great idea for groups of friends or family especially youth hunters. What's a better way to spend a cool crisp Maine winter day than being out with family or friends listening and waiting for the beagle pack to circle back and bring to gun another fleet footed Snowshoe hare.
You're welcome to call some of the folks who have hunted with us before to hear what they think.

If you like the idea of a less formal, more relaxed type hunt this is it! Snowshoe hare hunting is best described as well.. just plain ole fun!
This type of hunting can put your shooting skills to the test because the snowshoe hare is noted for being quick on its feet and maneuvers well in it's environment. We have a very high Snowshoe hare population, and success rates are great in our area. Our beagles are some of the best, hunted often and ready to run and do their job in most all conditions.
Warm clothes, hat, gloves and good insulated winter snow boots are necessary for an enjoyable outing. Come for a day or stay for the week, lodging and meals included in price. Call for group prices and youth hunter discounts. The Snowshoe hare season runs from October to the end of March.
This is an affordable hunt @ $125.00 per man-per day, minimum of 2 people, max of 10 people. Lodging and meals are included.
Have beagles? Bring 'em! Can hunt yours or mine. Kennel space is usually available.
Come on up for a Hare hunt!
