plenty of bears around, stands and baits well maintained. John made my first hunting trip away from home a very memorable trip his vast knowledge of his craft and friendly demeaner made all of us feel at home.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED” – Kevin Jones, Maryland, 2021 Black Bear Hunt

“Just returned back from bear hunting last week. Didn’t get a bear, but saw three cubs. The weather didn’t cooperate really well, it had been raining and windy almost all week. Even we all didn’t get a bear, but accommodation was excellent.

John is an awesome and professional guy. From the time he picked us up to the time he dropped us off at the airport, he made us felt like home there.
He took care everything for us and always asked us if we need anything; just to make sure we were comfortable at the camp.

I also would like to thank Mr. Skeet who is a cook there. The foods were always hot and delicious. It was an awesome trip.” – Paul Korng, Texas, 2018 Bear Hunt


“Tucker Ridge Outdoors…man so much good things to say, I don’t know where to start! John is an amazing dude that was so helpful; even though I didn’t get to shoot a deer, I didn’t care!

My experience was outstanding and got to see so much in so very little time. I will be returning every year to hunt and next to fish as well! If you’re looking for a hunting/fishing trip get a hold of this man! Till next time brother!” – Kurtis Singleton, Pennsylvania, 2018 Deer Hunt


“Went fishing on Junior Lake with John. There were six of us that fished with John over a 3 day period. Very professional and knowledgeable guy that loves the outdoors as much as I do. Listens to his sports in an effort to make their trip the best possible.” – Rob Young, Alabama, Bass Fishing 2018


 “Had a great time fishing with John for bass! Really got spoiled with his bass boat. We each caught some really nice fish (as pic above proves)!” – Marge & Ron Hutchinson, Pennsylvania, Spring 2018 Fishing Trip


“I’ve hunted at different outfitters before in Maine. Sometimes I didn’t even see a bear. During my hunt at Tucker Ridge, I saw three different bear at two different bait sites and took the third one.

John is the best guide I’ve ever hired, and I mean for any hunt, not just bear. His personal attention was unique and he listened to what I wanted. He worked hard and provided it.

I finally got my Maine bear, thanks to John and Tucker Ridge. I’ll be back.” – Ed Kalinowski, Pennsylvania, 2017 Bear Hunt


“I just got back from a bear hunt with Tucker Ridge, and it was a top notch experience. From the moment I stepped out of the truck, I felt like I was in camp with lifelong hunting buddies even though I had never met anyone in the camp.

The guide had multiple active bait sites for each hunter and had asked about our preferences beforehand, so he even had sites tailored to fit our needs/wants. We had multiple opportunities to fill tags despite unusually hot weather.

We also had a live in camp cook that had hot meals ready for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you want a good hunting experience with an outfit that truly cares for each and every hunter, Tucker Ridge is the way to go.” – Tyler Vest, Maryland, 2017 Bear Hunt


“Hunted at Tucker Ridge for three days, September 11 thru 13. Bears were active at nite. John would show me the trail cam pictures in the morning and give me a choice of sites to hunt that day.

John would let me drive his four wheeler to the the stand because I am limited in ability to walk very far. He would then take the wheeler back to camp, come back after shooting time to let me take the wheeler to the main road.

Cabin was nice, very clean, with all the amenities. Didnt get a bear but would go back again, I felt like john tried real hard to get me a bear!!!” – Robert Chandler, Maine, 2017 Bear Hunt


“Had an awesome day hunt up on Tucker Ridge! Warm cozy accommodations, with a full kitchen and dining area, full bathroom, and a living room complete with DVD/VCR players, and a wide variety of movies.

Our guide, John was one of the most real people you will ever meet! He met my boy with a little survival kit, went over a few friendly safety tips, and outlined what the hunt would entail, and sure enough, he carried it out down to the last detail!

He wanted to make sure our trip was as comfortable as possible, and it was exactly that! If you are looking for a professional guide who teaches you without degrading you look no further!!! He almost has me thinking I just might enjoy a bear hunt!” – Doug Alley, Maine, Youth Day Deer Hunt 2016


“I just completed my second trip. Some how I wound up bear hunting, and I DID enjoy it!. Had another great experience. Met some great guys!

Temps in the 80’s a few days…nothing a guide can do about that…But if there had been, John would have tried it, you can be sure!!! Daily trail cam photos showed the same bears coming in, as well as new ones. You cant ask for better than bears on your site! Next year come see me at Tucker Ridge Outdoors! I’LL BE THERE!!!!!” – Doug Alley, Maine, 2017 Bear Hunt
