Maine bear hunting season starts August 30

A few reasons why you should give bear hunting a shot:

Bear hunting helps keep the population at a number where bears and their environment stay healthy.

Going on a bear hunt is a great way to enjoy nature, get some exercise, and spend quality time outdoors with friends and family.

For those who find late autumn hunts too chilly, the mild temperatures of a bear hunt might be just right.

You could be rewarded with wholesome, locally sourced, free-range, hormone-free lean protein which, if handled properly, is excellent to eat!

Registered Maine guides are happy to bring hunters at any skill level on this true Maine adventure.

While you are out bear hunting you can scout for other species such as deer or moose.
