You shouldn't have any problem getting a bear in Maine because I'm sure they have all kinds like here in NB. We get a lot of hunters from NJ, PA, DE areas.

Not sure about Jeff's area, but we have a week left I believe, then a fall hunt. Some people do eat the meat.

Bear season will start around the 12th of September and be divided into different hunts.  I'll either use a 35 rem  a 30 06 or a 300 win mag.  :) Yep you can eat bear meat. Personally, I dont like it but my sister and brother in law love it, so they will get the meat.

do you all hunt with dogs, or bait, or just wait and see if one shows up?

Donuts. On shares one for the bear two for me.  ;D   Yes we bait but only use breads and sweets and things like that. Meat draws ravens and ravens draw other hunters. I have the first hunt before the dog hunters start. Those guys are a different breed. Some of them have no sense of what a property line is. They figure if the dog goes somewhere, they can follow. There have been cases up there where they cut logs and tear down gates. 

One thing that works real well is jello. Just sprinkling jello powder in the early morning dew on leaves puts an insane smell in the air that will draw bears.  We have had them try to rip the brush down at the cabin looking for what ever it is that smells.  You can take stale bread and mix up jello and pur the liquid over it as well to may a taste treat for the bears.


We pretty much rough it when it comes to going out to the bear blinds. Here is one of several at the cabin





This is one of the signs you may come across on the trails we have cut on the property.




I'm usaully a pretty happy camper when I'm up to the cabin for any reason. :)

it's unfortunate that a few dog hunters are disrespectful of other people's property.  most states have laws that allow the owners to retrieve their dogs from another person's property, but unless you have permission to hunt there, it is illegal to kill game that is treed on other people's property.

I'd love to "hunt" bear with hounds, but I don't believe I could shoot one out of a tree, unless they were becoming serious nuisance problems.

Pretty nice stand Jeff. Do you have to come out on the porch to shoot the bear or do you wait for him to come in the door?

We can't use bait for bears in NY but everyone gets a tag. Its part of your big game license. Our woods is south of interstate 86 where bears are legal to take. We usually have a couple hanging around every year. Last fall my son-in-law shot a really nice tom turkey the last hour on the last day of turkey season. It was dark by the time he got back to camp with it. He had never picked one before so I showed him how and by the time he got done my buddy had supper ready so I told him to leave it hang in the tree till after supper to cool and then put it in the freezer. Right after supper he went out to get the turkey out of the tree and all that was left was the back and one leg. Our only clue was the very large tracks in the snow indicating what the culprit was. Guess we won't leave a turkey hanging in the tree anymore.

Will have to test out the jello trick. Maybe I can get some good pictures. Good luck with your hunt. Hope you get a good rug. Would look real nice hanging on the wall of your cabin.
