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 .
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.
Being family owned and operated, our goal here at Rising Sun Outfitters is to provide you the finest Maine Black Bear hunt possible. We feel there are many factors that contribute to the making of a successful hunt. We believe that a hunt should not be judged by the harvest alone, but the total hunt experience. From your home cooked meals, your comfortable lodging, Maine woods ambiance and your interaction with our professional guides are all what contributes to Rising Sun Outfitters providing you with, "The Total Package".
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.
If you are looking for a safe, enjoyable, successful hunting experience with a friendly down -to- earth atmosphere in a family setting, THAN LOOK NO FURTHER ... CALL TODAY & let Rising Sun Outfitters give you the Maine Black Bear hunt you have been looking for.
