Mainers for Fair Bear Hunting



About the Issue

Mainers for Fair Bear Hunting seeks to enact long-overdue protections for Maine’s bear population. Bears are majestic and beloved creatures in Maine. Yet it is the only state to allow statewide hounding, baiting, and trapping. These are cruel and unsporting practices that do not reflect Maine values. In just 121 days, with the help of more than 2,000 volunteers, we gathered 78,528 signatures for submission to the Secretary of State's office to place this issue on the ballot.

I like the BDN’s recent publishing of letters to the editor and OpEds regarding bear hunting. I am an upland game hunter, not a bear hunter. I have carefully read the recent articles by those for and against the current baiting, trapping and hounding of bears.
