"Black Bear Hunting Tips"

Maine Black Bear Hunting Info and Recipes from a Maine Citizen for Bear Hunting and Eating Bear.

  • Successful hunters know that the best places to locate bears are at food sources. Pre-season scouting increases your success rate. Look for tracks, droppings, broken stems or branches near seasonal food supplies.
  • Always ask landowner permission before setting baits or starting hounds.
  • Hunt near food sources that are "in season". Early in the fall, bears are found near clear cuts that produce berries; late in the fall, hunt near sources of beechnuts or acorns.
  • Scent control is a must for successful hunting over bait.
  • Wear rubber footwear.
  • Keep hunting clothing clean, and avoid wearing it in camp where foreign odors can be picked up.
  • Do not smoke on stand.
  • Use cover scent.
  • Practice with your weapon continuously to maintain proficiency. Bears must be hit solidly in the lungs or heart, rather small targets compared to a bear's large body size.
  • Hunting with hounds is physically demanding. An exercise program will put you in shape to complete a hunt safely.
