Jam-Packed Guided Hunting Trip Itinerary

What can you expect from our guided hunting trip at Northern Hideaway Outfitters? You will arrive on Sunday at the camp. Maine prohibits the hunting of black bears on Sunday, so this is the opportunity for us to walk you through the week, introduce you to your expert hunter guide, and help you get settled for the week ahead. The group will draw hats for which tree stands they will be hunting from for through the week to be fair to all members of the guided hunting trip. Before arriving, you will also inform us of the type of weapon you will be hunting with during the week. The state of Maine allows bow, pistol, rifle, shotgun, and muzzleloader, so the choice is yours.

Each morning you will wake up and have a hearty breakfast prepared by our chefs on site. After that, the team will go out and try out their guns or weapons and make sure that they are firing correctly and ready for the day of guided black bear hunting ahead. The late morning before lunch is downtime for many of our black bear hunters. This is a great opportunity to take a kayak out on Big Black River or try your hand at fishing muskies or trout. Then our group will gather for lunch and get ready to go out to the treestands. At Northern Hideaway Outfitters, our goal is to have everyone in their treestands between 2 pm and 4 pm, and pick up is within an hour of dark. A bagged lunch will be given to you before you enter your tree stand that will serve as your dinner. Then we bring you, and hopefully, your killed spoils back to the camp and let you sleep and get ready for another day of your guided hunting trip.

Effective Bait Hunting Strategies

Here at Northern Hideaway Outfitters, all our guided black bear hunts are completed with bait hunting. Bait hunting is a black bear hunting tactic that involves loading a 50-pound barrel with bait and placing it below your tree stand. The goal is to lure bears to the tree stand by the smell of the bait. We use sweets and treats to attract our black bears, and our favorite sweet to use is peeps. This is a much safer way to do guided black bear hunts and will ensure that you are 100% protected during the entire process. Our team will set up the bait barrels every afternoon before sending you to your tree stand for the afternoon and evening. Luckily for you, our expert hunting guides track black bears every single week to ensure that you are set up in the best location to see and hunt the highest number of black bears during your stay. If you are looking for a safe and family-friendly black bear hunting trip, then look no further than Northern Hideaway Outfitters!
