Guided Maine Fishing, Trapping & Hunting With The Jack Mountain Bushcraft School

Fishing, trapping and hunting is a way of life in rural parts of the world. We offer instructional programs and guided trips fishing, trapping and hunting from our field school in northern Maine. If you want to learn how to cast a fly, set a beaver trap or hunt the North Maine Woods for ruffed grouse, or if you’d like a guided experience in the field doing so, we’ve got you covered.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
