Best Upland Bird and Big Game Deer Hunting in New England
Autumn comes early in the Great North Woods, and that’s great news for our guests who like to don their orange vests and hats and head out into the woods in search of game.
Our rugged, mountainous terrain provides an ideal habitat for Northern white-tailed deer as well as bird species like grouse, woodcock, and pheasant. Hunters visit our area every year in hopes of bagging their limit.
There are more than 200,000 acres here in Pittsburg: dense spruce forests give way to areas of clearcut woods. Our ample mountain streams, high mountain bogs, and the fertile river valleys are all accessible thanks to numerous logging roads. The State of New Hampshire generously allows recreational use of the land.
Pittsburg is famous for its large bucks, frequently exceeding 200 pounds. The Indian Stream valley is a favorite of big buck hunters, while others prefer the Magalloway Mountain area. Snow often arrives early, sometime during October, which makes tracking easier.
At Lopstick, we welcome our hunting guests, many of whom return year after year. Lopstick Outfitters offers experienced hunting guides with their trained bird dogs. They know the best fields and roads where the birds can be flushed out for excellent action.
At the end of a long day on the hunt, there’s nothing better than returning to your cozy Lopstick cabin. Many of our cabins have fireplaces and stoves, and some even offer a Jacuzzi or a hot tub for relaxing after a strenuous day. All our cabins have fully equipped kitchens, too.
With our unbeatable terrain, comfortable accommodations, and excellent package deals, the Lopstick Hunting Experience is hard to beat anywhere in New England. Call us today at 800-538-6659 and begin planning your next hunting adventure in the Great North Woods.

Lopstick Deer Hunting
Our deer hunting season begins the second week of September and runs through the first week of December. The days are usually crisp but clear, and you’ll appreciate the warmth of your cabin’s fireplace or stove at night.
With more than 200,000 acres, your choices in hunting habitat are wide and varied. Thanks to the well-maintained logging roads, you can get deep into the woods where the big bucks roam.
Lopstick Bird Hunting
The Great North Woods region around Lopstick consists of some of the best grouse and woodcock cover in all of New England. Our mountainous terrain is the ideal setting for a great afternoon hunt. The bogs, streams, and numerous maintained logging roads provide easy in and out access to the hunting areas.
The birds prefer our great ground cover and like to feast on the fruits of our native vegetation: mountain ash, high bush cranberry, raspberry, chokecherry and partridge berry.
Bird season begins October 1st and continues through December 31. Sunday hunting is permitted in New Hampshire.
Many of our repeat guests bring their own dogs, hunting gear, and know where their favorite places are. But hunters new to the area may want to hire one of our experienced guides. Our two guides and their well-trained German shorthair pointers will be eager to get you onto birds in some of the great covers in Pittsburg NH.
Lopstick Outfitters stocks a good selection of hunting gear to buy. We can do a hunting license for you when you arrive. You will need proof of taking a hunters safety course or a previous hunting license.
Of course, at the end of a long day of hunting, your cozy and comfortable cabin at Lopstick is a welcome and relaxing refuge. Many of our cabins have gas or wood-burning stoves or fireplaces, and some also have a Jacuzzi or a hot tub. But all our cabins offer comfortable seating, fully equipped kitchens, and tremendous views. Our Grouse Hunting Package offers excellent value for three-night stays.
