To some, hunting is a time-honored tradition that relies on tried-and-true techniques. Others believe hunting is an ever-evolving craft that requires the latest technology. Then there’s Northern Outdoors, a New England outfitter that fuses tradition and technology to create the ultimate hunting experience.

Located in the breathtaking North Woods of The Forks, Maine, this outfitting oasis has been serving sportsmen some of the country’s finest whitetail deer hunting for nearly 40 years. In addition to these extraordinary whitetail expeditions, Northern Outdoors has expanded its 2013 hunting and fishing options with the release of a new, mobile-friendly website. Prepare for big fun with more small game and custom hunting trips and get hooked on smallmouth bass and fly fishing packages.

Bag a trophy buck with the assistance of the Maine Master Guides, who have decades of experience in almost every form of fishing and hunting. Northern Outdoors follows the herd and harvest reports from the State of Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, so all guides are armed with the most recent data and trends. With a combination of expert guides and promising reports, the upcoming season looks to be one for the record books.  

“We expect 2013 to be a very strong buck season thanks to a three-year trend of recovering deer numbers and a 19% increase in buck harvests reported for 2012,” Northern Outdoors Vice President Jim Yearwood said.

Also becoming increasingly popular are the phenomenal fishing packages. Teaming up with local guide service Kennebec River Anglers, Northern Outdoors has added additional alluring fishing options for both expert and novice anglers. Whether you’re looking to battle oft-biting and hard-fighting smallmouth bass in the shallows or fly fish for trout and landlocked salmon in Maine’s rugged Kennebec and Dead Rivers, Northern Outdoors is more than happy to accommodate you.

Speaking of accommodating, each fishing trip features professional Registered Maine Guides, fishing gear, transportation, and a boatload of memories. Starting at $179 per person for half-day trips and ranging from $350 to $400 for full-day excursions, your angling adventure comes at an affordable price.

Step back onto solid ground for some of the North Wood’s finest small game hunting. A variety of custom packages ensure you’ll find the option you’re hunting for. Expert guides and highly trained dogs will help you hone in on grouse and woodcock. In the winter, enjoy snowshoe hare hunting. With so many options, hunters may require repeated stays.  

“Our Maine Master Guides, full-service hunting lodge, and tremendous location in Western Maine cause hunters to return year after year to hunt with us,” Northern Outdoors President Russell Walters said.

Combining hunting tradition and technology with the release of additional hunting and fishing packages and a new, mobile-friendly website, hunters are bound to continue returning to Northern Outdoors.
