Maine Bear Hunt - Need help

My father and I are considering a spring or fall bear hunt in Maine in 2011. Anyone have any input on a good outfitter from previous experience?

Appreciate the help!

Maine doesn't have a spring season. You'll have to go to Canada for that.

Maine does have a spring season. My buddy guides it on indian land. This will be second or third spring.

I'll sleep when I'm dead.

Re: Maine Bear Hunt - Need help

I moved away from Maine in Jan, 2009. I didnt know of one prior to that, at least not during the years I lived there. (1997-2001, 2006-2009)

I did see some bear mounts of earlier years that had spring hunts, and I would not want to shoot one of them skinny things!!!

Just found out my buddy left for Maine for a bear hunt. So I hope they do have a spring hunt.

Re: Maine Bear Hunt - Need help

they may have one on Indian land, but the state in general quit spring bear hunts right after the 1981 hunt. I have not heard that they repealed that statewide. If you find a spring hunt anywhere up in Canada or on that Indian land, I can fill you in on the details you'll need to follow to be sure of as comfortable hunt as can be done in the spring up north. There are many good guides in Maine, depending on how for west or north in the state you go. Two I can personally recommend are Katahdin Lodge, and Bear Mountain Lodge, both located on rt11 north out of Patton.

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Why? It's not spring?
It is in Australia

Shoot straight
