Bears Bears Bears

With thousands of square miles and millions of acres of second-growth timber, providing prime food sources, Maine is the perfect bear habitat and has the highest black bear population in the lower 48. These excellent conditions allow adult  bears to reach weights as high as 600lbs and living up to 30 years .

RSO Gives Back

Rising Sun Outfitters believes that with education and volunteering we can preserve our hunting heritage. Maine is very  fortunate to have the leading Black Bear biologist in the country. This is RSO's Morgan volunteering with Maine's Inland Fisheries & Wildlife  Black Bear biologist team. Here they are  tagging  and collecting data on denning bears to insure that Maine stays the leader in Black Bear management.

Small Numbers mean Big Rewards

Our philosophy in taking a LIMITED number of hunters per season allows us to ensure you a top quality Maine black bear hunting experience and to concentrate on the matter at hand...putting you on bears! Small numbers allow attention to detail that large outfitters running big numbers with continual hunters on their sites can't provide.  Rising Sun Outfitters can guarantee that our sites are not over hunted. We spend months in advance of the bear season, brushing blinds, setting stands, tending trail cameras and cleaning up shooting lanes. Once the season opens it allows us to focus on bear activity at and around our established bait sites.  This provides you with increased sightings and the opportunity to experience bear actively returning to your site until you get the shot you desire. Rising Sun Outfitters  success rates are high but not guaranteed as these are WILD animals.
