Libby Camps has some of the finest trophy deer hunts available in the East. Each year our hunters bag some of the largest deer in the state as can be seen by checking the annual records from the Fish and Wildlife Department. Our average buck is heavy antlered and weighs in at over 180 pounds dressed. Northern Maine’s severe winters cull out the weaker, smaller deer giving us a genetically superior white-tailed deer.
There are two keys to our success: our area and our guides. Our camps are located in the heart of one of the largest wintering deeryards in the state. As the fall progresses deer will infiltrate our area getting ready for the winter to come. By the peak of the winter it is not unusual to see hundreds of deer in and around our camps. The coyotes and the cold wreak havoc on these animals, but come spring the strong survive and breed more of the same for another year. Our guides are regarded as the finest in the state. Many of these men have hunted these timberlands all of their adult lives. We have hunters returning year after year always asking for the same guide because of his knowledge and hard work ethic.
