New Brunswick Whitetail Hunt 2014

Three years ago I was introduced to a sporting lodge that sits on the edge of the Tobique River in New Brunswick, Canada. My interest was in the spring bear hunting that was offered. While driving to visit the lodge I was overwhelmed with the many whitetail I saw. So many that my focus was not on the bears when I arrived but now on the whitetail deer. I dreamed of the day that OMM Outfitters would be guiding clients on this extraordinary property. In 2015 that vision will come true!

2014 was the first year I had time to further investigate the potential of a New Brunswick OMM Hunt. Five people, including myself showed up at the lodge to hunt the last week of the New Brunswick whitetail season. This was to be a baited hunt which is legal in New Brunswick. Excited was an understatement.

The facilities are only two hours from our Maine operation where guided deer hunting continues to be economically compromised. This made it easy for me too get there on Wednesday of the prior week to help the lodge owner / friend with some needed site evaluations. My friend has never guided for whitetail in his area on this level we are preparing for in 2015. While there, I was able to scope some truly exceptional deer. One of the deer was in the 160 inch range.
