Our Bear Hunting services.

Fall Bear Hunting over Bait
With the Maine bear population being at a record high and steadily climbing, there are great opportunities for the hunter wishing to harvest the elusive black bear. Our black bear hunts are done over active bear baits withhistoric professional guide service. Each one of our stands are carefully tended to, catering to the firearm or archery hunter. Big Machias takes great pride in selecting and maintaining our bear hunting sites to provide optimal results.

We have multiple black bears coming to each site well before the season begins. A tremendous hunting area with an abundance of active bear bait sites assures productive hunting for black bears. We have a proven track record of bear hunting success with limited hunting pressure throughout the season. All black bear hunting stands and blinds are set up in key locations with ample cover for both black bear and hunter. Shot distance for bowhunters is not more than 20 yards and firearms hunters can expect an average shot of 40-60 yards. All baited Maine bear hunts are fully inclusive with no hidden charges or additional fees.

Why we are successful
We attribute our Maine bear hunting success to a number of factors. Hunter concealment and prevailing wind play a major part in our stand locations along with our time proven methods of baiting and natural setting of the bait site.

The Big Machias Advantage
To have consistent success in bear hunting it involves a team effort coordinated well in the advance of the season. With baiting starting 30 days prior to the opening day of the season, we work countless hours setting up locations and baiting bears. The expansive area we have to hunt allows us to maximize the number of hunting stands with no overcrowding or hunting of any area. Our team oriented philosophy combined with the unique and highly populated bear hunting area truly creates one of the best bear hunting camps in the country.
