Maine Bear Hunts

2016 Bear season

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.

Now that the 2015 Maine Fall hunting seasons are all over, I can finally sit down and report how things went. Living at the lodge for 3 months with no internet is awesome but it means I cannot blog. So, when I get home I have a lot of writing and remembering to do. I have to report on Bear season as well as Moose, Upland bird, and Whitetail seasons both rifle and muzzle loader. That's asking a lot of a failing memory :-) So....

Here's how Bear season went...

First thing I want to say is that we had 4 weeks of fantastic people at the Wilderness Lodge. From the first week hunters right to the fourth week Special Operations Wounded Warriors or SOWW ( more on that week below ), Eagle Mountain Guide Service enjoyed the company of some great sportsmen and women. The new friendships made and the return of old ones is my favorite part of Bear camp.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING...

Well it's Thanksgiving day and I finally have an opportunity to sit at a computer and do some updating. I have been living at the lodge since the 3rd week of August. Guiding bear, bird, moose, deer. I'll be going back up after the holiday family together. It's time for Me to get some deer hunting in. :-)

1st and foremost, we defeated the ANTI's (again) in their efforts to do away with Bear hunting in Maine. For those of you who have not been following, the Humane Society of the U.S. managed to get a state referendum on the ballot this Nov, but Mainers' said screw you and voted it down!

So, 2015 is on.... Book early! the phone has been busy since the referendum news spread.

2014 was by far the biggest and best year of Bear hunting for Eagle Mtn. Of the 51 hunters that came 25 harvested a Bear and 6 others coulda shoulda woulda... The biggest weighed in at 350lbs taken by Mike Richards ( aka Johnny Reb ).

Well all I have been talking about lately in this blog is Maine's battle to save our bear hunt. The battle goes on and I have every confidence we will defeat the perpetrators of this attack (U.S. Humane Society) on our heritage and life will go on....

Now, the upcoming bear hunt....

If you have booked with us this year, we look forward to meeting & hunting with you. ( Again for many ) If you did not book a hunt, I regret to tell you we are full for the season. We cannot book anymore hunters for the 2014 bear over bait hunt.
