Bear Hunting

All of our Maine Bear Hunts are on private leased land. This assures that we are the only ones hunting those sites. Our tree stand sites for Maine Bear Hunts are all platform ladder stands or portable loc-on stands. The stands you will be set at are guaranteed to be active bait sites. The baits are all pre-baited by your Maine Bear Guides. All of the stands will be 12' to 20' off the ground and will be 15 to 30 yards from the bait site for the best shots for your Maine Bear Hunts. Black Bear are big animals and we recommend that you hunt with a rifle no smaller than a .243 cal or a shotgun with slugs when on Maine Black Bear Hunts. If you would like to use a bow you must use broadheads no smaller than 7/8" when on Maine Black Bear Hunts. All Maine Bear Hunts are from the lodge and we provide cooked meals. Maine Bear Hunters are taken to the satnads and picked up atthe stands by the guides. We provide tracking services if needed.

Bear hunting with hounds

These bear hunts are very faced paced and fun. A hound hunt can be a physical hunt which could last for hours or be done fast. We will go to the bait sites in the morning to check the cameras to size up the bear and make a decision on weather to run it or go to another site. When we find a bear to run we will let the dogs down to run it. We follow these hunts with gps tracking collars so to get the hunters in the right spot to harvest a trophy bear.
