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 will ensure your stay at #9 fulfills your every expectations.  We will gladly give you references of guests who filled their tag and those that did not.  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.

Louise prepares all meals daily in our commercial kitchen which is fully licensed and inspected every year by the State of Maine.  All meals are served family style and all you can eat.  From the salads to the deserts Louise’s meals are fabulous.  Our water is tested annually to offer you the fresh, cool drinking water you would expect from the north country.  All the coffee, tea and soft drinks are included in our meal plans.

Guide service is second to none.  We spend a lot of time in the woods year round. We know Zone 6, period!  The intertwined wood roads, the grown over tot roads, interconnecting old time log roads and our so called twitch trails – we know where we are, where to put you and we will share 100% of our knowledge with you.  We want you to be successful whether it is filling your tag, bagging that 200 pounder or just experiencing the north Maine woods.

Hunting, Fishing, ATVing – 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 and thanks to the land owners, 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.
