DIY Bear Hunting in Maine

Northern Hideaway Outfitters will provide you with one of our cabins and 2 fresh sites per hunter, which have been baited for 30 days before your hunt. On the day you arrive, we will take you out and show you each site you will be using for the week. We will provide you the bait for that week as well as solid hunting advice. You will be responsible for transporting yourself to the bait sites, baiting the sites, game recovery, and game care. We will aid in tracking or skinning at an additional charge.

There is a minimum of 4 hunters per party for this hunt.
Coyote hunting and fishing are no additional charge.
