I'm looking to go on my first black bear hunt in 2009. I've narrowed the choices to Maine and Ontario. I was wondering if anyone on this forum could recommend a good guide, in either location? There are plenty of them online, but I was hoping to find some objective first hand knowledge on here. Obviously, I am also interested in any "stay away fom them" advice as well.
I plan on hunting with a rifle. I'm open to either spring or fall hunts, but prefer the fall. I grew up in Michigan and have been away from Autumn in the hardwooods for far too long. I'm looking for an all inclusive hunt, over bait. I am planning on spending a week. I may or may not have one other hunter join me. I would be willing to spend up to $2500 for the hunt. I'd be willing to go a bit higher if I could do a combination hunt with a whitetail or an "exotic," but my major goal is a decent 5 1/2 foot or greater boar.
