Welcome to #9 Lake Outfitters

"Ted and I had a great time at #9 Lake Outfiters . Louise and Don were great hosts and the food was fantastic! This was one of the most relaxing hunts I have been on! --Mark Best

Louise and Don took the summer of 2014 off for an overdue vacation.  75 days on the motorcycle, 13,000 miles, 32 states, 2 provinces and 20+ national parks.  A fabulous time and we are rejuvenated with new energy.  We will once again be your gracious hosts during your stay at #9.  We love what we do and it will show. We are absolutely committed to you from the minute you book your hunt or cabin.  We will work hard to ensure your northern Maine expectations are met.

Hunting, Fishing, ATVing, Snowmobiling – we have the facilities and the guides to meet your every need or interest. Located on the New Brunswick border in the heart of Aroostook County, we are surrounded by the north Maine woods offering unlimited hunting country, thousands of miles of ATV and snowmobile trails (next to your cabin!) and countless brooks, streams, ponds and lakes for fishing interests. Check out our Facebook page for continuous photo updates.

2012 has been a great year so far.

Ninety One percent (91%) of our bear hunters saw shootable bear.  Some took one home, some shot at one and others elected not to shoot but 91% had the opportunity.  Check out our bear and photo category for great pictures.

One hundred percent (100%) of our moose hunters had the opportunity to fill their moose tag.  One hunter was only interested in a monster and passed up 5 bull.  He had a great time and looking forward to coming back.  One guided hunter bagged a 54 inch spread  bull and another one bagged 49 ½ inch spread.  Our trail cameras help tremendously and they reveal monsters are still on the hoof for 2013.  We have them on trail camera and on our camera from the truck.

Put in for your moose tag and give us a call to book your hunt if you get drawn.


We offer a 20% discount to all veterans for all our regular bear-over-bait hunts and recreation stays.


We offer significant discounts for hunters coming as a group for one of our guided bear hunts. Discount can be as much as 100%
