firstdeer9pt,

I noticed your reply and I thought I would give you a heads up on Hunt Preserves in Maine. We were licensed in 1999 and they have closed the door to any future licensing of game preserves.

You could start a deer farm and raise deer for hunt preserves, but with the current laws you could not operate a Preserve. You can raise red dear, fallow deer , sika deer and elk. You can not raise whitetail in Maine.

In order to operate a hunt preserve you would have to buy an existing hunt preserve or get the law changed that governs our industry.

If you email me I will send you my URL and you can check out our site. We have hunters coming from as far away as California and inquires from around the world. I am a member of the Maine Deer and Elk Farmers Association and I would be glad to help you in any way I can. If you thought you might like to buy an existing Preserve I might be able to locate one for you to purchase.

Take care,
Mark Luce

Welcome Chris and Aaron. If you ever get over this way look us up.

Here are a few pics I took this past hunting season in the preserve .

Published Traditional Muzzleloading author Bill Sanders and his 20 point stag he harvested on 10/28/05.

The first one is his first shot from a brush blind.............. Behind that smoke is a stag at 40 yards.Bill made a good forequarter shot that took out one lung. The stag went down hard but was up and gone in an instant.

The second is his re-load..........We blood trailed the stag until he disappeared into a thick jack fir thicket. We figured that he was likely to cross a nearby tote-road.

The Third is his second shot from the tote road......We backed off and repositioned ourselves on that tote road when the stag broke cover and began to run straight away from us. Bill took aim and made a dificult neck shot on his trophy. I was lucky to get this picture and was pleased to see how well the billow of smoke came out

The Forth is where the stag went down.
