Description: The Jackman area has a large population of black bear, many reaching trophy size. In Maine, the average adult black bear runs between 150 and 200 pounds. At this destination their bear weights have been averaging 200 pounds, and every year they take a few over 300 pounds. The bear baiting is done in remote areas with no competition from the other outfitters. The Fall hunt starts the end of August and goes into September and is limited to a small group of hunters. The hunting stands will accommodate rifle, bow, muzzle-loader, and handgun.
Bear hunting is very relaxing. Being that you hunt only late afternoon into the evening, you the hunter have all morning to play. Many hunters bring their spouses for some nice R & R, and this is a great place to bring families, too.
September is a nice time of year. Early in the month the weather can be quite nice with day time temps averaging around 70 to 75 degrees. The heated pool is still up and going as well as the hot tubs. Later in the season, it is cooler, and you’ll see the gorgeous foliage around the third week of September.
Families get their own private cabin and young hunters are welcome.
