Best Upload 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 ideal habitat for northern whitetail 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 steams, high mountain bogs and the fertile river valleys are all accessible thanks to numerous logging roads. And our local timber company generously opens most of these lands to hunting during the fall season.
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 who know the best fields and roads where the birds can be flushed out for excellent action. You’ll also find the best in hunting gear and find out where other hunters have had good luck.
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 gas and wood-burning fireplaces and stoves, and some even offer Jacuzzi hot tubs 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 and begin planning your next hunting adventure in the Great North Woods.

Lopstick Deer Hunting
Our deer season runs during the month of November. 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 backwoods where the big bucks roam.
Our Deer Camp Hunting Package is good for seven nights accommodations, and our cabins can sleep from four to seven guests. Click here for details.
Lopstick Bird Hunting
The Great North Woods region around Lopstick consists of some of the best grouse, woodcock and pheasant cover in all of New England. Our mountainous terrain also features river bottom, areas of scrub growth after logging operations, wetland bogs and streams, and numerous maintained logging roads for easy in and out access to the hunting areas.
The birds prefer this good cover ground, and like to feast on the fruits of our native vegetation: mountain ash, high bush cranberry, raspberry, chockcherry and partridge berry.
Bird season begins around October 1st and continues through December 31. Sunday hunting is permitted in New Hampshire.
Many of our repeat guests bring their own dogs and hunting gear, and know where their favorite places are. But newcomers may want to hire one of our experienced guides and their well-trained German shorthair pointers to get a great introduction to some of our great bird cover areas.
Lopstick Outfitters stocks a good selection of hunting gear, and we always have the latest maps and information on where the hunt is successful each season.
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 boast Jacuzzi hot tubs. But all our cabins offer comfortable seating, fully equipped kitchens and tremendous views of our mountain and lake countryside. And our Grouse Hunting Package offers excellent value for three-night stays.
