Re: Maine Bear Hunt?
I surmise you are looking for a baited hunt which is at the end of Aug/Sept.Some hunt with hounds up there, but I have no interest in hunting them that way. Maine can be good or not. It's about the timing and how much food is in the woods that year. Just realize its not like the 3-4K hunts in canada on TV where you'll see bears everyday, can whisper and move around in the stand in plain sight of the bear and then just shoot one. It might be that way, or you might see none. I mention this because it sounds as if you think this might be an "easier" way of getting one than in PA.Please pardon me if I misinterpreted. That aside, they are reasonably priced (within your budget), easy pace(no 4 AM wake-ups like deer hunts), enjoyable hunts. Try Randy Flannery at Wilderness Escape Outfitters. In the meantime keep trying here.
