Specializing in Black Bear, moose and Smallmouth Bass. Beachfront lodging. Home cooked meals. Personalized service. We’ll show you a great time.

Gary’s Guide Service offers guided Maine black bear and Maine moose hunts. We are located in the Howland-Lincoln area of central Maine, situated halfway between beautiful Acadia National Park on the scenic, rugged coast of Maine, near the beautiful popular town of Bar Harbor, and Baxter State Park to the North, home to spectacular Mount Katahdin, the Northern end of the Appalachian Trail.

In addition to our moose and bear hunting, we also offer some great fishing. The Penobscot River runs past our Riverside Cabins and is known worldwide for its small mouth bass fishing. Great numbers of fish can be caught daily and that includes fish in the 3-5 lb range. There are also 15 lakes within 20 minutes of our cabins should you bring your own boat and want to try fishing elsewhere.

Our goal at Gary’s Guide Service is simple--to provide you with the best bear hunt trip possible. We will do all we can to make sure your hunt is safe, successful and fun. Everyone here usually make friendships that go on way past the week of hunting. Sitting around the riverside campfire exchanging hunting stories after a great day of hunting is hard to beat. 

\The accommodations for your moose or black bear hunting trips will be in our Penobscot River cabins located on the bank of the Penobscot River in Lincoln, Maine. Your hunting cabin has electricity, showers, gas grill, and a deck with a Easterly view of the Penobscot River with beautiful sunrises over the water. The town of Lincoln is only a few miles away so any supplies or services you need once you arrive will be available nearby. We will also provide you with a hand designed map of the area showing you area businesses, should you need their services while you are here. During your Maine black bear hunt you will have free time in the mornings so it is a great time to take a canoe or motor boat ride on the Penobscot River to fish or just try to spot a Bald Eagle or some of the other critters that live nearby. You are welcome to bring your own boat if you like. We are located 50 miles north of Bangor International Airport and we can provide shuttle services for your hunting party for $100 per round trip or you can rent a vehicle at the airport.
Gary belongs to the National Rifle Association, the Maine Professional Guides Association, the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine and the National Wild Turkey Federation. Gary has a bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Maine. He is an avid hunter, fisherman and golfer (yes. a golfer). You may even see him hitting a few golf balls in the river shortly after the sun comes up just to keep his swing in form during the hunting season. He has lived in this area his whole life and knows it well. Gary will work as hard as anyone you have ever hunted with to help you harvest your Maine black bear or moose. Gary's experience and love for the outdoors allows him to stand out among other Maine black bear guides.
