These bears are even more anxious than I am to get the bait season started. They know where to come looking for the good stuff! We still have 4 spots available for this fall…

I have three words for the Maine Legislature’s Committee on Inland Fisheries and Wildlife – shame on you. By bowing to anti-hunting activists and out of state interests, you have sold your own constituents down the river. And for what good cause?
LD 11, sponsored by State Representative Stephen Wood, proposed amending Maine’s constitution to establish the right to hunt and fish was recently before the committee for a vote. The result was a split decision with ‘Ought Not to Pass’ gaining the majority vote. Read More…

I ran the bait line today and refreshed hit baits and pulled the cards on the trail cameras. This year is shaping up to be a great hunt for our sports coming up to Tucker Ridge…
So far, all the bears hitting the baits are shooters. We haven’t seen any sows with cubs unlike last year when we had a sow and cubs take over a bait. We let them have it and it’s paying dividends this year. I have those yearlings and the now dry sow on camera; they look pretty good!
Here are some highlight photos of what you are going to be hunting this fall…As the weather starts to cool in coming weeks, these bruins should start feeding more frequently, and in daylight.
Just finished today’s bait run and am happy to say we have two sites getting hit so far. The first has two different good bear and the other a decent yearling. Here are some cam pics…
