Upland Hunting Guide Service

We offer upland bird hunting guide service October 1st through early November. Hunt for ruffed grouse, woodcock and pheasant over our trained German Shorthair Pointers or bring your own dog.  Join us for a North Woods hunting adventure. Let us show you the grouse woods of northern New England!

The day afield begins at 8 am at our office where you meet your guide. From there we take to the woods. Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch and return to your cabin in time to relax before dinner. Our experienced upland hunting guide, Dave Trahan, owns On Point Kennel. Selling premium quality, versatile dog training equipment, Dave also breeds and trains hunting dogs. He works dogs every day using the equipment they sell. Briar Déjà and Fanny all Deutsch Kurzhaar-German Shorthaired Pointers have completed the entire necessary test required for breeding in the German regulation. All dogs are tested in the NAVHDA test system. Together they hunt in New England and the Mid-West United States. As member of NAVHDA and NADKC North American Deutsch Kurzhaar Club they support testing and breeding regulations. Dave has been a NH guide for several years working with Lopstick Lodge to provide you a hunt of a lifetime.

Advance reservations are encouraged for bird hunting guide service due to the season length and guide availability.
