I've always wanted to take a bear. My Brother has a cabin in Maine with another guy. They have both taken bears up there over bait. I haven't been invited, but I think I'd like to spot and stalk one instead. Seeing my Brother take up barrels of jelly donuts kind of ruined it for me. I'd probably take the wuss option and bring a rifle. I'd take a crop damage bear. I know the guys who farm oats in Maine have bears in their fields all the time. I don't know anyone here that has taken a bear with a bow. You've got to be pretty brave, and confident.

My Brother shot a 250 pound bear with his .308 and my handloads. He said he rolled down a hill snarling. It wasn't his shining moment when he had to climb down and go looking for that bear. It was dead when he found it but he was scared looking for it.
