Re: Maine bear hunt
I went to Maine bear hunting one time. The guide we choose was not a good choice. We were up around Patten, just east of Baxter State Park. Of 7 guys, only 2 were able to see and get a bear, and neither weighed over 130lbs. I was shocked to find out that other guide services were placing hunters in the exact area we were hunting. Each day that we went out we past passenger vans with hunters being placed at baits. The area was supposed to be private land, which it was, but it was leased from the power company. The locals use these areas as public land. This was the first time I had ever been on a "guided" hunt, and I don't see myself doing it again. I really hope your experience is better than mine.
