WHAT WE DO
NOT EVERY GUIDE DOES EVERY KIND OF GUIDING...
...although it seems some do, and do it well. Generally, though, one who only hunts bear with beagles may tell you he doesn't do canoeing. Someone else guides ice climbing expeditions and admits she's not one for insect hunting.

DamnYankee LLC isn't the one to go to for some things, either. (See below.)

For instance, maybe you'd like to try hunting for wild game but the hunting media (magazines and the Outdoor Channel) have made you feel that it's for rugged outdoor types who talk guns, smell like skunks, and eat only moose jerky. If you don't need a trophy rack to bring home but just want to experience a Maine hunt, kill or no kill, let us suggest something.

We invite you to try us for other activities such as the following:

RECREATION
rock hounding, fossil hunting for brachiopods,
outdoor photography,
insect hunting (entomology),
flora and fauna,
remote natural wonders,
remote historical sites,
canoeing, kayaking, boating,
primitive camping (tenting, etc.),
“luxury” camping (lakeside cottage with conveniences),
hiking with a naturalist,
trail riding (with the help of a friend's stable)

HUNTING (with proper licenses)
deer, moose, turkey, ruffed grouse, ducks

SHOOTING
firearm familiarization (different types of guns),
firearm/hunting safety,
target practice

FISHING
lake or river,
boat/canoe or shore,
fly or lure

If you're not familiar with most wilderness pursuits, consider combining a number of the above activities into a trip you design for yourself. Combine some canoeing or boating with some fossil hunting and outdoor photography, add some fishing and finish off with some target practice using a variety of firearms. For more ideas, see design your own trip.

NOT OUR FORTÉ
most wintertime pursuits (guiding anyway),
swift water canoeing or whitewater rafting (but there's the
New England Outdoor Center for that),
trapping,
bear hunting,
flying


GIFT CERTIFICATES
Consider giving a guided trip as a gift, and announce it with a beautiful 8½ x 11 gift certificate almost suitable for framing, (designed from an old, blank Bangor and Aroostook Railroad stock certificate).
