Bear Season 2024 - Now Booking

We are now Bookng for 2024 Fall Hunts 


We are now located in beautiful Athens Maine about 20 minutes north of Skowhegan, Maine. We have teamed up with Cedar Mill Farm & Cabins to provide an awesome location with very nice rustic cabin accommodations in a wooded setting that reside behind an old farm field and apple orchard, with a nearby stream on the property for our clients,

The cabins are very clean, have gas heaters, gas lights, a stove and a generator will be available for charging electronic devices on a limited basis each day. Cabins do not have running water or refrigerators, (Bring coolers for personal drinks, snacks etc as well as coolers for your bear meat for the ride home.) there is an outdoor privy for each cabin. Hot showers daily are available at the main lodge, with clean towels provided.

We will be offering Semi-Guided Bear Hunts anyone needing lodging will need to contact the owners of Cedar Mill Farm & Cabins  for reservations or you can book at other local hotels and lodging. 

The cabins pictured above are at Cedar Mill Farm And Cabins in Athens, Maine, there are only 4 cabins available so Call Terrie for cabin reservations 207-654-2195 immeadiatly after booking your hunt with us. You will want to book your stay from Sunday to a Saturday morning departure. We will meet up on Sunday evening at the Cedar Mill Farm and Cabins and show you where your bait site (s) are for the week and go over the rules and particulars of hunting with us.

Our semi-guided bear over bait hunts and bear trapping opportunities are as follows.   

We prepare and maintain our baited sites over the one month period of pre-baiting allowed by the State prior to clients arrival for their day one of hunting. We clear brush, groom our shooting lanes, place digital cameras on every site, install stands for left hand & right handed shooters who use bow, crossbow, handgun, rifle, shotgun, muzzle loaders and have them ready for each clients specific needs from ground blinds, hang on stands to double tree stands and we bait using premium products that bear just love.  Our baited sites give our clients extremely good hunting opportunity. We monitor trail cameras on all our bait sites and this is the crucial key to booking with us, we will put you on a site that we know has active legal shooting time bears frequenting the site. If our clients stay scent free, sit still, stay in stands, move very slowly when they sit our stands, your odds will be some of the best in Maine for your opportunity to harvest a Maine Black bear!  

Why are our prices for a bear hunt so low???  Our prices are low because you drive yourself to and from your bait sites,  you process your own bear harvested or take it to a butcher locally, you help in the retieval, you is awesome to book your lodging yourself with low prices per night too and you cook and provide your own meals!  Cedar Mill Farm & Cabins has Gas Grills, Generators, and indoor gas stoves with cooking utensils etc..   We will also assist, as needed in removal of your bear and helping you get it to the tagging station and a butcher when available to make sure you preserve your game correctly.   Bring Coolers for your meat, Ice can be purchased at the local store in Athens.  You can opt to use your own butcher or do your own processing etc, back at camp.  If you plan on doing your own skinning and processing of your bear, bring necessary tools for the job with you.  If you do need assistance with this, we ask that you do the work under our direction, you can be our student and learn how hands on for a "fee", we will guide you through the gutting, skinning, & quartering process but this is not included with your hunting fee, another eason we are low priced. 

Our price for a semi guided Monday - Friday 5 day hunt is $1200.00 

Our Trapping opportunities for licensed bear trappers are the same price as our over bait hunters, if you would like to do a dual bear hunt and trap this can be arranged for $200 less on one site. Hunt by day and trap by night! Trapping only $1200 - Dual Hunt & Trap one bait site $2200.00.

Trapping Rules and Regulations will be   ADDED HERE shortly!
