Default Almost Black Bear Time

Since I didn't get a black bear in Maine last year I'm trying again this year. I will be spending a week with Squapan Mountain outfitters, with the hunt starting 8/27. This is Widow week and Roger and Toby from Black Widow will be there. They will be giving a custom Black Widow to whoever kills the biggest bear.

Good luck! I have spent all week up in northern Maine fishing. Lots of guides putting barrels out this week in prep for the upcoming season.

Good luck! I tagged my bear this spring. I like the fall bears better, but too many hunts this fall.

Hope you-all have a great hunt! If anyone doesn't want the tail, would you skin it out for me. I will pay shipping. I know they are small.

My wife and I are going to be in Maine the 18 of Sept.. We will be hunting lobster at "REDS" in Wiscasset, Maine.

My brother is going with me again this year. The outfitter said they're seeing some good bears so hopefully we'll both score. I'm going to hunt out of a ground blind.

This should help get you going. Mine was 6’6 nose to tail his way as 6’10. Both skinny but that’s what you get hunting spring. Both chocolates, mine was more rusty colored. Hope you kill a monster up there.

Good luck, Phillip, as well as Todd on y'all's hunts.

Can/do you carry a sidearm -- particularly in a ground blind?

Since I'll be driving through New York, I won't be taking my handgun. Some of the guys do carry handguns. I do have bear spray.

I am at the same outfitter the week after you. I called too late to get in on the black widow hunt but they had an opening for September 3-8. Im pretty excited. Hopefully you can update this thread while you are there. Good luck

Going back to the Navajo Nation in September with my Daugher-in-Law and Son and another young lady married to one of the boys that I nearly raised. This will be my first fall bear hunt on the Rez and I am expecting some pretty big critters. We will be chasing with hounds so the there won't be much sitting and waiting.
Good luck to all the Bear Hunters!!!
Adios,
Gary

2 weeks to bear camp. This is very much a TBH hunt as my bow, arrows, and string were all built by TBHers.

Just heard from the outfitter. Its shaping up to be a good year. It has been hot and dry, there is no mast crop and the bears are hitting the baits hard. They have bears on camera on all baits during daylight hours.
