NOT TOO LATE TO BOOK YOUR BEAR HUNT FOR 2015.
A few openings the second week (Sept 7) and 5 openings for the third week (Sept 14). Great Gift Idea.
We limit our bear hunters to guarantee each one has a fresh bear site to ensure plenty of bear sightings. We start baiting the sites the first of August to ensure active sites and continue to bait the site every day until the bear is harvested. Bear are plentiful but very smart, sometimes referred to as the black ghost. All our stands are new (within the last 4 years) ladder stands. We recommend you bring your own tree harness and favorite cushion. Comfort is a must to enable you to sit without movement for several hours. Our sites are spread over 20 square miles with most on North Maine Woods, LLC controlled area. We also have a bunch on private land bordering New Brunswick. We also have numerous sites on farm land where bear thrive on berries, oats and apples.
Typically we have over 80% opportunity rate. That is, at least 80% of our bear hunters see shootable bear during their 5 day hunt. Some elect not to shoot looking for something bigger and we actually have hunters that shoot and miss from 30 yards! We currently have most of our tree stands up and ready to start baiting on August 2, 2015. We anticipate a great year. We have seen several bear and many folks in the area have seen bear. Thick cedar swamps and dense woods tend to hold the bear. They don’t want to be seen.
The warden service has announced that several residence in our area have complained about bear around their homes. We need to support the warden service take more bear.
Peter Lima from Virginia and his first bear. Peter took the guides recommendations to heart and bagged this big boy on the 4th day at the same stand. Trail cameras proved bear were hitting this site and patience was all that was needed.
