“It was my first time bird hunting in Jackman and I had no clue where to begin so my friend and I hooked up with Maine Upland Guide Service and they put us on the birds! The food and lodging is excellent too! The beds were very comfortable, hot showers, laundry etc. Dave and Mike know their stuff and will have you laughing all day! Can’t wait to go back! ”
