We pride ourselves in getting every hunter a bear. We take small groups each week to ensure a high quality experience. The first two weeks of the season is bait hunting only. We take 8 hunters per week when hunting over bait. The third week of the season is when hunting with hounds starts. We limit it to 2-3 hunters per week when Bear hunting with hounds. I bait 40+ baits every season. I do all my own baiting primarily. This way i know all the bears have plenty to eat. Some site's we have as many as 8 bears using them. Most all of the sites have multiple bears and a lot of other critters for your viewing pleasure. At times hunters see moose come walking through the woods while hunting.
In the mornings before you go hunting over bait there are numerous lakes,ponds,streams, and rivers where you can go trout fishing. The lakes have various other fish in them to. Or you can just relax at camp. The western mountains in Maine have some of the prettiest scenery you have ever seen. When hunting over bait you will hunt in the evenings until dark. Your hunting guide drops you off and baits your bait while you are getting in your stand and picks you up after shooting light. When hunting with hounds you go out at daylight and we check trail cameras and when we find a pic of a big bear then we turn the hounds loose. This hunt is not for everyone. It will get your heart pounding at times with excitement. Hound hunting is a high adrenaline hunt. You will either shoot your bear crossing one of the many logging roads or out of a tree. In some cases the bear will bay up on the ground and it is close range excitement. You need to be in good enough shape to do some walking to go black bear hunting with hounds.
2022 is going to be another one of those exceptionally good years so don't miss out on the fun. The last two years have been amazingly dry in Maine. I have seen streams dry up that were major trout streams. It has been good for the bear hunting because the natural food has been scarce. The bears will be hammering the baits this year to just like they always do. That means you will have more chances at getting a good bear. We will have to wait and see what the natural food has in store for the hunting season. Over bait we always run around 80% every year +or -. We normally do 100% success rate with the hounds. All of our hunts over bait are done out of a ladder stand or a ground blind. It is your choice. We do not double hunt our areas. Each week we hunt a different area. You are guaranteed a active bait site to hunt. The key to killing a bear over bait is setting still and being scent free. Bears. have an exceptionally good nose.
