About this hunt

*3 spots from a cancellation now available* Your mornings are free to fish, take an ATV trail ride or just relax. After lunch, your guide will take you to your hunt site, refresh the bait and settle you in. We’ll pick you up after legal light or when you shoot a bear. Some hunters prefer to hunt the morning and evenings. If you wish to hunt all day, we are flexible and will make any adjustments needed to ensure you have a fun and exciting hunt. Preseason baiting, lodging and local transportation are all included. We’ll also drop you off and pick you up from your hunt site. Your guide will provide field care and transport to the tagging station and a game processor if applicable. We provide ready to hunt tree stand or ground blind bait sites depending on your preference.

The Lodge

Hunting camp is far more than a place to sleep when you aren’t on stand. It is a place of camaraderie, union of spirit and legacy building. Reinert's Lodge boasts plenty of room for large groups featuring two kitchens with appliances and a full bath on each level. A washer & dryer are available onsite. Multiple wood stoves provide a comfortable, traditional hunting lodge feel. Enjoy the spacious deck, cook on the grill and have a camp fire in the stone fire pit. All guided hunts include lodging and meals on the American Plan.

Super trip with son. Great folks in all areas of the experience! If you enjoy the outdoors a trip to the 'Big Woods" of northern Maine is a treat.

The entire trip. Two bears were legal but I thought they were too small. Super folks in all aspects of the trip. Fantastic Father/Son trip!

Overall a wonderful experience.

We hunted hard amid very difficult weather conditions. Our guide did everything in his power to help us harvest a bear. It was not to be that week but I would highly recommend this hunt, especially if you are a true hunter wanting to enjoy more than just the moment of harvest. I will hunt with John again.

When it was over.

Black Bear Hunting in Maine

The accommodation was great and the guy is so friendly and helpful.

The guy smokes too much and every time. Even smoked in the the truck while taking us to the blinds or tree stands; which meant we were all contaminated every time. As a hunter, we try our best to do the scene control. But he doesn’t have that. I saw him smoked right just before he walked to the bait sites or even refreshed the baits. And most of the blinds or tree stands are set up too close. I m talking about 20 yards to 30 yards. Maybe good for bow hunters, but not for rifles.

Reliable Good value for money Ineffective
Tucker Ridge Outdoors outfitter
Paul's negative review is untrue, unjust and based on his frustration from not being allowed to shoot cubs per TRO policy and our reluctance to book him again for next year. His incessant use of his iPhone, camera gadgetry and noise on stand accounted for his inability to take a bear. Repeated warnings were ignored. Apparently a first time bear hunter from Texas knows more about bear hunting & behaviors than a Maine guide. Also, clients never are present when we bait sites - just the person who has been baiting them for the entire season. Paul also fails to mention that he had bears on his site, but didn't shoot - he was shining a white flashlight on them when I arrived to pull him out of his blind...after legal shooting light. His review of his hunt on our Facebook page before we declined booking him next year is markedly different. It can be read here - https://www.facebook.com/pg/tuckerridgeoutdoors/reviews/
