Sow And Cubs

Although legal in Maine, we question the taking a sow with cubs during the hunt. However, it is a matter of individual ethics. This gallery will aid you in determining whether you have a sow with cubs or a dry sow with yearlings at your bait.

Sows with cubs will have noticeable bare patches on the chest around the nipples from cubs feeding. Also, the cubs will usually race in to the bait first.
