Your hunt includes six days of bear hunting in the beautiful Moose River Region of Maine in the town of Jackman. You will be hunting black bear over baited sites from tree stands.  Since black bear are most active at dusk, our daily hunts average about 5 hours a day, starting around 2:00 p.m. and coming out of the woods around sundown.

For bear hunts only, game retrieval and butchering is included in the cost of your hunt.  We have a local butcher who does a great job, which includes packaging and freezing the meat for transport.

For all hunting and fishing trips, a State of Maine License is required and is the responsibility of the hunter.  Some hunts require additional tags, for example, a bear hunt requires a State of Maine Big Game hunting license, plus a bear tag.  In order to ensure that you get the most out of your hunting experience, we suggest you bring the following items:

·State of Maine Hunting License and Bear Tag - can be purchased in the town of Jackman or online (required)
·For Bow Hunters we recommend broad head arrows with 7/8th cutting diameter
·Safety harnesses, if you prefer your own
·Rain Gear
·Light Weight and Medium Weight Hunting Clothes
·Rubber or waterproof boots
·Gun Case
·Bug repellent, head net, etc.
·Compass and / or GPS
·Fishing Rod

Your hunt also includes seven nights of lodging at Riverview Cottages on the banks of the Moose River.  Your hosts at Riverview Cabins, John Bashaw, Master Maine Guide, and Theresa Gilbert have cabins complete with linens, hot showers, complete kitchens and cable TV.

We want you to enjoy this hunt, and future hunts, with JR Guide Service, so if something isn’t to your liking or you have any special requests, please feel free to ask.  Since we are a small operation, we have the ability to give personal, specialized service.
