Welcome to the forum.
I happen to be in Maine right now for a couple of days on business. Have hunted Maine once before. Got nothing but had a good time. I am sure you will find another mainiack or two. Good hunting.
A little late responding to the post since I just noticed it. I've been hunting Maine for the last 20 years. I currently hunt the western part of the state. The last few winters have been pretty mild so I've noticed an increase in the herd in the area I hunt.
Hello my name is Mike I live in Texas but I try to get up to Maine ever chance I get. I have hunted bear around the Andover area. I have found that the local people are the friendly,s people you will ever meet.
I have always looked for ways to save money and gain skills. I have the firearms basics covered so I rarely buy firearms these days. But I do watch for bargains. Sometimes a little TLC with simple tools will let you bring an old gun back to life without investing a lot of money. One such find was a side by side 12 gauge marked “W. Richards” It is not from the fine English gun maker Wesley Richards, it is a cheap knock off copy probably made in Belgium about a hundred years ago...
