Maine is often overlooked by hunters (unless they’re trying to hunt in every one of the 50 states) but Maine features decent wildlife that has plenty of opportunities.
Best Animal to Hunt
Maine is a pretty versatile state when it comes down to hunting and if you’re a hunter who loves to go after the small game – we highly recommend hunting ruffed grouse.
