Leen’s is a traditional Maine sporting camp, with rustic cabins scattered among towering pines and ambiance to spare. Come fall, the region is awash in spectacular foliage, with woodstoves piping smoke into brilliant skies. Leen’s offers the quintessential New England hunt on more than 350,000 acres of accessible land. Guides and dogs lead clients into coverts of second growth, overgrown farms and alder runs—prime habitat for grouse as well as resident woodcock and birds moving south out of Canada. Crisp October days see hunters working edges and pushing through cover, with shots often taken through trees or small openings at jinking feathered blurs.
