If your son wants a bear. Look into a bear hunt with hounds in Maine. The hunt we did was $2500 a piece. Everything was included lodging,meals,and guides. Ever day was action packed something I think a young man would enjoy. We got 7 bears in 4 days. If you more information let me know.
Yeah I was just reading up on that. If they have combo bear/deer that would be awesome. My son really would love to get a bear.
If you're looking for a bear hunt I recommend W.T. outfitters in Quebec. They have a father son package, think it's $1900. Probably about a 10 1/2 hr. drive from you. Good time and lots of bear. I have been going with them for 12 years, shot 7 bear and ashamed to admit hit 3 that got away! Passed up several more. Always a good time ! If you need more info you can PM me.
