Maine has one of largest bear populations in the eastern United States estimated at over 30,000 animals. Most of these bears are taken over bait, some are spot and stalk. I set up my bear hunters with a two bait per hunter ratio as to give the hunter options.
I have been baiting bears since I was 18 years old. I know the dos and don’t(s) because of years of experience. Today we have game cameras and know the caliber of bears coming in and also how many per site. I tell my hunters how to hunt each site to keep the hunter presence to a minimum. This is the secret to getting a trophy boar.
The average bear taken is around 175 but many of my hunters do much better than that. 200-250 lb bears are common, 250 – 350lb happen regularly, and 350-500lb happen most every season. Boone and Crockett bears have been taken by three of my hunters to date.
The price for this hunt is $1800 per hunter. Custom or all inclusive hunts are available – price on request.
I hope I can take you to the tagging station with a trophy Maine black bear.
