Hey Tony,
Maine has some real big deer close to you. but deer #s are lowif you want an inexpensive hunt with a real chance at a nice deer you have to head to the midwest public land bow hunt would be your best chance to do it cheaply.

When I lived and hunted the Adirondacks we used watercraft of some sort to hunt. You can get away from the crowds that way. The Moose River area has lots of water to float. One spot that always produced was Onion Hill. You put in at headquarters from the east side. The season runs from late october to december with the best time being the week before thanksgiving. Check to see if heavy snow produced a bad winterkill the year before. If it did wait until you get a couple good winters back to back. The water is cold so be careful.
