Finally am home from the lodge and have time to sit down and update everyone.

Well it finally happened. After almost 30 years trying to break the 400lb mark, we did it this year!

AND..it happened during our SOWW (Special Operations Wounded Warriors) week.

Yep, one of our Special Ops Warriors took down this 431lb bruin !

The head on this monster will eaily score Boone and Crockett. We're just waiting for the 60 day drying period , then onto an official MASTC ( Maine Antler and Skull Trophy Club)  scorer.

Sadly I can only post one pic on this blog but if you go to our Eagle Mountain guide Service FB page, I'll post a bunch along with this blog.

The rest of the season went just as good with many quality bears harvested. Lots over 200lbs

It was an awesome year for bear.

Bear are still up as we are experiencing a bumper crop of acorn and beechnuts.

I want to give an update on our butchering options. ( Info on website is out of date )

We use a local slaughter house that does a great job cutting up our bears at a reasonable price. Cuts to order, vacuum packaging, sausage to order etc.

Do to the fact that we are not the only outfitter he butchers for, as we get close to the end of the week he cannot gurantee bears will be done and frozen by your Sunday departure. When this happens bears will be skinned and quartered at the lodge and put in our freezer. Saturday bears will not be frozend by Sunday so hunters will need to keep ice on meat and hide for the ride home. Dry ice can be picked up in Bangor.

We will go over all of this again at our Monday morning meeting.

Well I finally have a chance to sit down and write about how last bear season went. 

We had a fantastic year with 20 bears harvested and multiple other opportunities.

Our SOWW ( Special Operation Wounded Warriors) week we went 8 for 10 ! What an awesome week that was. (PIC)

Some really big bears were seen but not harvested for one reason or another. One because the hunter had a bow and the bear did not present a good shot and another monster that never actually came to the bait. He was seen twice!

2016 Bear season

12 MAY 2016

 

Well it's Spring fishing season here in Maine but I'm always thinking about what follows... BEAR SEASON !  I am very excited this year because Eagle Mtn has picked up another 8000 acres of prime Bear territory. I have been up once to do a preliminary scout of the area and will be headed back asap to start picking out 8 new bait sites. It's beautiful country, with a lot of water, mostly trout streams and rivers surrounded by thick  green woods. Prime bear cover ! Scouting is my favorite part of hunting. Will keep you posted.
