Spring Bear Hunt

P6130186

The Penobscot Nation is one of only 2 tribes that offer spring bear hunting over bait in the entire Northeast.  The hunting season lasts for 7 weeks and hunting opportunites are available in every trust land territory.  Large bears are routinely harvested (see our photo gallery!)  Permit numbers are conservatively managed by the tribe, which results in a high quality hunt that cannot be matched elsewhere in the U.S.   

Permits cost $500 each (guide fees are a separate cost) and are purchased through a Registered Penobscot Guide.  A list of guides can be found below.  One person is allowed to purchase multiple permits.  Please review the laws pertaining to the spring bear hunt in the Chapter VII Fish and Game Regulations prior to arriving for the hunt.  

2017 Hunting Season:  May 8th - June 24th
