Maine has not had a Spring Bear hunt in over 25 years. For those that had the opportunity to hunt in the spring, most will agree that it was a great hunt. Thanks to the Passamaquoddy Indian Tribe, Bulldog Camps is able to offer a Spring Bear Hunt in the Western Mountains of Maine. We have leases for a 40 square mile parcel of land for the exclusive Western Maine Spring Hunt. This land is in a very remote section of Maine and holds a large number of Bears.

The Western Mountains of Maine produce some of the largest whitetail bucks taken annually. Bulldog Camps remote location offers you the luxury of hunting from your cabin door.
Full and semi-guided hunts are available. Hunters who choose a guided deer hunt enjoy the advantage of having their scouting done in advance, and tree stands already in place in productive spots. On unguided deer hunts, we can recommend areas to hunt, but you are on your own for the week while in the woods.

We have some of the finest Ruffed Grouse hunting in Maine, and early season also produces large numbers of Woodcock as well. Early fall gives bird hunters the opportunity to get in the woods while the weather remains mild.
The ruffed grouse remains the icon for bird hunting in Northern Maine. The abundance of birds here makes it a great spot to bring your dogs to work, but they are by no means required to have a successful hunt.

"December 20, 2007
Met Darren from Bulldog Camp at the Harrisburg Sportsman Show in February 2007. His son, Jordan, was there as well. Had a very interesting conversation about the deer population in Pennsylvania and the impact of taking Does. Mentioned that I have been hunting deer for the last 40 years and have taken several nice Bucks, however I was interested in hunting where there was little if any hunting pressure in the Northern woods. Darren said he was the owner and operator of a hunting camp near Jackman Maine.
I had been to Jackman several times and somewhat familiar with the Moosehead Region. I had in the past fished in Moosehead River and the nearby Kennebec River. Darren said the deer population in ME was not as large as PA but there was some very Big Bucks in the area! He was upfront/honest and said you have to hunt for them, however the rewards of taking a Buck where well worth the trip! He mentioned the opportunity to see a few very large Bull Moose as well. In addition to the hunt, he mentioned the beautiful scenery, accommodations (cabin), hospitality, and the fine meals from the Gourmet Chef; all of the comforts of home and then some! Well I can certainly attest to this!
Although I did hunt hard, luck was not with me on this trip and didn't have an opportunity to shoot that Big Maine Buck. I did however see a lot of very impressive Bull Moose and this in itself was a thrill for me! And of course there is next year.
To me a successful hunt is not what you harvest but what you get out of the trip; the camaraderie, food/fine meals, accommodations, conversation and hospitality is what made this trip one of the best hunting trips of my life.
Thank you again, Darren, Sierra and Jordan.
Please feel free to ask Darren for my number if you are interested in additional information. I'll be glad to provide it. All of the best!"
