Welcome to Wadleigh Mountain Camps Wadleigh Mountain Camps is located in T8R7, a place where the towns have no names; they are numbered. Where the only sounds you hear is the wind rustling through the leaves and the occasional songbird. Hunters, fishermen, snowmobilers, hikers, or families looking for a relaxing getaway will find abundant recreational opportunities within steps of the front door.
Originally opened in the early 1970's, Wadleigh Mountain Camps has provided decades of remote wilderness accomodations for outdoor enthuisiasts. Our lodge provides the solitude you expect from a Maine sporting lodge, with all modern comforts.
A typical day of guided Upland Bird Hunting begins at our lodge, where you'll have a hearty home cooked breakfast. We'll load the dogs and travel a short distance to one of many nearby bird covers. There will always be time to enjoy the scenery or take that photo of a Maine Moose. We'll take a lunch break mid-day and finish hunting in time to return to the lodge where you can relax before dinner.
You may hunt with your own dogs if you wish or hunt with our trained English Pointers. Our rates include fully guided hunts with our dogs, guided hunts with your dogs, or self-guided. All packages include meals and lodging.
About Our Dogs: Our English pointers follow blood lines from national champions Cowboy and Whitesnake, undisputedly some of the best bird hunting dogs in the country. Wadleigh Mountain Camps has worked with one of the top dog trainers in the business, Garry Malzone from Indian Creek Kennels. Our dogs are well trained, in great shape and hard to beat.

Maine Deer Hunting: Spend some time this fall at a Northern Maine Deer Hunting Lodge. Hunting deer in this remote region has it challenges. The immense size of the habitat makes is harder to pattern these Monster Bucks. With tens of thousands of acres of contiguous forest, it becomes essential to pattern these deer and learn their traits. With patience and the experience of a knowledgeable local guide, large deer can be found and harvested. Hunting this country can be tough but with determination, the rewards are great.
As deer season progress from rifle hunting in November to Muzzleloader hunting in December, the deer's habits change. They enter the fall rut and begin to prepare for the long winter ahead. During this time it is generally most productive to find travel corridors and feeding / bedding areas. Stand and blind hunting overlooking these travel routes can and does produce large deer. Each year in this region many deer are shot over 200 lbs. Despite the recent decline in deer populations, this area does and will continue to grow monster whitetails.
Pre-season scouting and knowledge of the area is necessary to find these monster bucks. At Wadleigh Mountain Camps, that is our job. We work full time in the surrounding forests and put our knowledge to work for our clients. We are always looking for new productive hunting areas.
Lodging & Accomodations: Wadleigh Mountain Camps first opened in the early 1970's. The lodge, under new ownership, continues to provide clean, affordable, and relaxing accomodations in the northern Maine wildnerness. Throughout the spring, many minor refurbishments are planned to better serve our customers. Updated photos will be coming soon.
