Another successful bear hunt with Ron Riccardi. Anyone wanting to see and get a chance to harvest big black bear, you really need to get up here and hook up with Ron. Ron gets you onto some bruisers. I have taken 3 bears in 4 years with him and the one year I didn't was because the weather was horrible. As always thanks to Amy and the girls for helping this make another unforgetable hunt.

Ron and Amy, thank you for the great bear hunt. I still can't believe I shot such a huge sow.
Truthfully the entire trip was wonderful, the cabin is awsome, and the supper at night was terrific. It is clear that you enjoy what you do, and put a tremendous amount of time and energy into your work. See you soon in the Woods!!!

Ron, Thanks again for an amazing bear hunt. I came to North Maine Woods Guide Service on Sept 12 2010 and had the opportunity to hunt with Ron and harvest my first ever black bear on video. I have been alot of places hunting and this my friends is TOP NOTCH. The cabins are amazing the food was unbeatable and the hunting was EXTRAORDINARY. Ron had many pictures and videos from trail cameras to show me when I got there and really pumped me up. We saw some huge bears and harvested a solid bear on the third night with a bow at 15 yards. Ron really went the extra mile for us to make sure we were comfortable and were having a good time. If Maine has it Ron can put you on it for a shot opportunity, then it's up to you. If I were asked by ANYONE "where would you go to hunt for bear or moose"? I would undoubtedly say North Maine Woods Guide Service. If anyone needs me to further convince them this is the best place to hunt that money can buy don't hesitate to call. See you again soon Ron. Tommy Melchert Open Season TV.

Ron, We just want to thank you again for an amazing Moose Hunt, we all had a wonderful time. He kept bringing us back to these fields and after being hunters ourselves for many years we couldn't believe we were hunting in a field for moose. Only after 10 short minutes of calling he pulled our bull out of a swamp over a half mile away. The moose then walked by the other truck in our party at which time they informed us over the radio. They had no idea we were only a few hundred yds away waiting so when we ran up over the hill there he was coming right to Ron's call. All six of us in the party were witness to the kill. We are now true believer's in his abilities and would reccomend to anyone that want's a great hunt and amazing experience to go with the North Maine Woods Guide Service. Never doubt the guide, Ron is one of the best and his calling abilities are truely amazing!!

Ron - just wanted to say thank you again for an awesome moose hunt, what an adventure. It was really special to watch our sixteen year old son get his first moose along with my brother getting his as well. You are very passionate at what you do and are the best. We will definitively be back next year. We'll send some lobsters your way real soon. Thanks!! Mark and Billi

I hunted with NMWGS and have to say it was one great hunt. I have hunted all over the US and Ron was one of if not the best guide I ever had. If you are thinking about booking a hunt think no longer this is the place to go ! The cabins are something you would want to live in not just hunt out of.

Thank you for memories I will never forget.

Ron is a 1st class guide! I took my first bear with him in August of 2008. I plan on coming back for many more hunting experiences, hopefully I'll draw my Moose tag! North Maine Woods Guide Service is unlike any other camps I've been too. First class facilities, and a perfect place to bring the family to, or that first time hunter!

Another year hunting with Ron and it was a huge success. A 538 pound black bear, possible a state record for the year. As always the cabin is awesome. For anyone planning on staying here, you will thoroughly enjoy it. The cabins have everything you need, the area is beautiful and Ron and Amy do not treat you like guests, you are treated like family. Ron, thanks again for everything....hope to see you next year.

Hi Ron, Amy, Ronnie, Kimmy and Sammy,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell other people how we met. It was my first time beer hunting in Maine 1980. Ron was guiding for his father, Benjamin Ricciardi, who owned and operated Chubby's Sportsmens Inn. When I arrived at camp Ron and his dad greeted me and my frends who invited me to hunt with them. Every one was so friendly. The camp was top shelf from the rooms to the lodging andthe food. The next day Ron took me to a HOT BEAR STAND! I saw so many bears I thought he was letting them out of cages. I was shaking so hard I missed every bear I shot at. That night Ron and I talked about how I needed to take a few deep breaths and relax. The next day ron took me back out and I killed my first black bear. When Ron came to get me I asked him if it was a nice bear he said oh ya then he asked me if i wanted to ride in the back of the truck on the way home so the bear wouldn't blow out on the way home. I cracked up and Ron and I became best friends from that day on. I went back every year and killed some really nice bears. My wife and I went to their wedding I remember when little Ronnie was born. He's not so little any more. Ron and Amy asked me to be Ronnie's god father. I was honored. Then came Kimmy and Sammy. Ron and Amy were blessed with a beautiful family. I bought property there and can't wait to build a cabin. Ron and his family have spent many of good times with MaryLee and I in New Jersey, and we have spent many good times with them in Maine. We're like family now any one who goes there would see what I mean 4/1/08
Love you guys, Steve and MaryLee Ficarro

I've been hunting all over the United States and have never met a guide that was more willing to go the extra mile for his clients. Thank you for the great experience.

This is a top notch facility. We stayed in a log cabin that was truly incredible. We were treated like royalty by Ron and his family. Ron is an incredible guide and his knowledge will almost certainly get you a shot at a bear. He did everything from soup to nuts and made the trip truly memoriable. We both were able to harvest a bear and will be back for next year. Thanks again for everything.

This has been incrediable. I have been on over a dozen guided hunts. I must rate this as one of the very best. Your hospitality is unsurpassed. Ron is a professional, with the ability and knowledge of the area to find game. Ron took the time to show us the area when we were not hunting. His goal is to insure his hunters a memorable experience.
I was caught here during hurricane Rita (I live in Galveston.) Amy changed my reservations from Sat. to Wed. and they continued to take great care of me until my departure. I'll be back.

While we hunted together, we saw 31 moose (19 cows and 12 bulls, WOW!! The moose I harvested was an impressive bull (900 pounds with a nice rack). We had quite an adventure with our 300 yard drag to get the moose out of the woods. You are one of the hardest working and conscientious individuals that I have ever met. Your family treated my family with generous hospitality. Thank you for making the Maine 2006 moose season very special for my family and me.

Dear Ron, Amy and Children,
Pat and myself have hunted and fished all over North America. I have to say that this trip has been one of the Best. The cabin is first class in every way. You have been without a doubt the hardest working guide I have ever had in all my trips over the years. You have a wonderful family and all have made us welcome. The scenery is breath taking. I can assure you that we will return. You may use me for references for all the services that you provide.

Thank you so very much,
LT. Col. Don Smith Retired, USAF
