About Us

BEN ALLEN – OWNER – REGISTERED MAINE GUIDE
Epic Adventures LLC. is owned and operated by Registered Maine Guide Ben Allen. Maine moose hunting has been a passion of Ben’s ever since he went on his first moose hunt as a boy. Ben joined his father and grandfather on that first family moose hunt and the memory is still vivid to this day. It was that hunt, that ignited a lifelong desire in Ben, to accumulate the woodsman skills necessary to become a successful moose hunter, big woods deer hunter, and a Registered Maine Guide. After ending his military service in 2010, Ben was able to carry on his passion for moose hunting and has participated in the Maine moose hunt each year since. When not guiding, Ben works as a logger, spending as much time as he can in the woods throughout the year.

In 2023, Ben was able to purchase Epic Adventures from long time owner and founder, Registered Master Maine Guide Brian Donaghy. Brian first met Ben a few years prior, while they each were guiding deer hunters for Big Woods Outfitters in Jackman, ME. They continued to guide deer hunters together during those few years and in 2022, Ben guided a moose hunter for Brian. It was during those hunts that Ben made a lasting impression on Brian. They both shared the same woodsman skills and passions for hunting the big woods out of remote camps each Fall. In 2023 Brian decided to sell Epic Adventures and move on to new endeavors. In Brian’s mind, Ben was the perfect fit to take over Epic Adventures and continue the professionalism that Epic Adventures has become known for. Ben graciously accepted the opportunity and is excited to build on the reputation of Maine’s premier trophy moose outfitter!

As luck would have it, Rich drew a second Maine moose tag in 2012 and he harvested a 56” bull with his muzzleloader.
