Maine Bear Hunts & Trapping

We offer 3 weeks of fall baited black bear hunting in Northern Maine, near the Mt. Katahdin area. We also offer bear trapping packages utilizing our pre-baited bait sites. We believe the quality in preparation for these hunts sets us apart from other outfitters. Each bear hunting bait site is pre-baited 30 days before the season opens. We routinely check and freshen our bait sites. We also monitor our bait sites with trail camera surveillance.

Each bear hunter is provided with two pre-baited stand sites, set up using a comfortable ladder treestand or ground blind. Our hunters may use the weapon of their choice, such as rifle, archery, muzzleloader, crossbow, or handgun. Upon arrival on Sunday, guide will accompany clients to the shooting range for a final sight-in check.

Lodging for our Maine bear hunts, is provided at Pine Grove Campground & Cabins in Medway, Maine. Lodging and meals are included in hunt package rates. Bear are processed at a local butcher. Bear are delivered to butcher by guide. Local taxidermy services are available.
