2008 Bear Season Week One
Our season opened on Monday August the 25th this year. By this point we have had four weeks of pre-season baiting and preparations at the lodge.
The weather was very good, with little to no rain during the first week. We had a total of 31 hunters between the lodge and our outpost camp. We successfully tagged 23 bears and missed an additional 4 during the week.
Two bears well over the average size in Maine were harvested by our sportsmen the first week. One at 380lbs and the second at 461lbs.
All signs indicating that the rest of the season should hold similar results for our hunters at the lodge.
