Allen Afield: Tales of bear hunting last a lifetime
Black bears can offer hunters a brush with danger.

Maine’s bear season begins Aug. 31 for hunters posting over man-placed baits, still hunting, sighting a bear and then stalking, or hiding by natural bait and game trails. The first tactic runs to Sept. 26 – a four-week hunt. For want of a better term, the “fair-chase” season runs to Nov. 28 – 13 weeks. Dogs are legal from Sept. 14 to Oct. 30 – seven weeks.

Folks with bear dogs can also bait in their time frame to provide canines a starting point for picking up bruin scent, but after Sept. 26, hunters cannot shoot bear over bait unless a dog has chased it first.
