Black Bear Hunting
Maine is considered one of the best locations around for black bear hunting opportunities. The Pine Tree State provides sportsmen and sportswomen fairly easy access to a significant population of Ursus Americanus, or the American blank bear, a game animal that requires a high amount of skill, endurance, and patience to successfully harvest.
The state has estimated that there are more than 30,000 black bears in Maine alone. Because of this abundance, there are all sorts of methods available for hunters eager to take part in both spring and fall black bear hunting trips, including archery, muzzleloaders, hand guns and slug guns.
