Maine has the largest continuous forest east of the Mississippi River. 90 percent (17.8 million acres) of Maine is forested, the highest percentage of any state. This includes 12 million acres in the northern part of Maine that is home to the Outdoor Adventure Company. Maine is the only state in the union with Canada to the west, north and east. Its size is where Maine got the nickname “the Big Woods.” The Outdoor Adventure Company leases over 30,000 acres specifically for bear hunting and has access to all 3.5 million acres in the Maine North Woods during Moose, Deer, and Grouse seasons. Turkey season sees the OAC team traversing the central and southern counties to hunt secured farms and public hunting areas. Our 700-acre base camp and farm are in Guilford, Maine on the Sebec shore road with access to Sebec Lake.
