MAINE – Bear hunting season begins at 5:19 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 25 throughout Maine. Last year, more than 10,000 hunters purchased permits to hunt bear, and killed 2,845 bears.

Black bear populations are growing throughout North America, and due to Maine’s heavily forested landscape, Maine boasts one of the largest bear populations in the United States at more than 30,000 bears. As a result, Maine has one of the longest hunting seasons in the country, stretching from the end of August to after Thanksgiving.
