Bears Captured on Game Cameras

The following are a few of my favorite game camera pictures that were taken during last weeks foray into the deep Maine wilderness in pursuit of black bears. All of the photos were taken at bait sites that I helped to maintain as part of my guiding obligations. In addition to bears the cameras also captured rabbits, raccoons, blue jays and a young moose with a lust for fermented doughnuts!

  1. I like that first picture the best. I think that is frameable quality.

  2. These are such impressive shots. Love the top one where the coat looks so silky and black. Amazing creatures. Thank you for sharing these photos.

  3. Thanks all . . . I have approximately 70 different shots of bear that were obtained throughout last week. So really magnificent animals.

    I was impressed at just how high a value game cameras have at bait sites for targeting large bear and leaving smaller bears, bucket cubs and sows to grow to an acceptable size before they are harvested.

    In addition, the cameras also helped to target and match hunters to bait sites where the bear were feeding before the end of legal shooting or visiting in the early morning.

  4. One day soon - in just a few luxury bathroom refurbs time - we'll have to get together to hunt one of those beauties.

  5. great images. I love the one of that little cub. Thanks for sharing!
