About this hunt

(Housekeeping Accommodations) You will be set up on real active baits and mostly all good close shooting. Our specially processed bait along with our own highly productive scent formula are a couple of reasons why we have such good success with this method of hunting. Non-hunting spouse or partner $475. Land Access Fee $100.00 additional per person This black ghost can appear at your stand and then disappear in a blink. Scent and noise control are critical to your success. You are provided pre-built, permanent stands, portables and ground blinds with all obstructing branches and brush cleared from your line of fire. Our stands offer bowhunters an average shot of 18 yards. Rifle hunters will shoot at distances of 75 yards or less, and hand gunners will be shooting 20-30 yards. The black bear demands shooting excellence before he will fall to a hunter. Even at these close ranges, a precision shot is essential. Your target is a 4 to 5 inch square (boiler room) area just behind the front shoulder. Bow-hunters, it makes no difference how good a shot you are – unless you hit a bear exactly in the boiler room with the arrow heading towards the bear’s head, you will get nothing but a wounded bear. The black bear is unlike any other game animal you have ever hunted. When hit, he will not lie down and bleed out like a deer. But rather, will run until he dies – which could be up to 20 miles. Therefore, a precision shot is essential. Those of you using a gun have many options. You do not have to even wait until the bear is on bait for a good shot. Also, a head and chest shot can produce when combined with accurate shooting. And never rush a shot. But when you do have a good shot – take it. Do not assume the bear may go left or right, or even to the actual bait. Be positive of what and where you are shooting…it’s your responsibility.

Where you will stay

Hunting Cabin

Unlike hunts with most outfitters, lodges and sporting camps, our guests are not doubled up in a bunk house or room with other guests. Your party will enjoy the privacy of your own sleeping room, and the good night’s sleep that is important for a good hunt – whether you come alone, with a large group, with your spouse or whole family. In our Maine Moosehead & Katahdin Region hunts, we offer excellent housekeeping accommodations in comfortable cottages or camps. These are modern vacation homes that have electricity and running water. Many offer lakefront locations with private docks. Hunters will have free time to rest and enjoy these settings, and non-hunting companions will be able to relax and enjoy their time while you are out hunting. We match your lodging to the size of your party. We provide bedding and household equipment. You’ll have everything you need to prepare your own food inexpensively. Plus, there are also several places to eat within easy driving distance.

Facilities: Wi-Fi TV Bathroom In-suite shower Fridge Electricity
