Would Recommend: absolutely NO

Overall Impression: nightmare

From the moment of arrival it was really bad.I have hunted with five outfitters total,and this was hands down the ablolute worst.It was a rip off plain and simple.He actually set us up within about 50 acres.(4hunters)on baits.We drove 100 miles and then back cramped in pickup truck each morning to run hounds ,for 2 coon runs. We could not run a bear even after running dogs on dozens of baits.He beat and took out his frustrations on his on his hounds.He also had a group of hunters from west virginia removed from camp because they were unhappy and had the audacity to express it!We got about 4 hours of sleep a night since we had to drive to nearly new brunswick to hunt inactive baits .He was rude and arrogant and foul mouthed to his clients I left on thursday morning and at that time I was the only one who saw a bear, a small one that I passed on .This is the third outfitter I have hunted bears with in maine. This was a 1500.00 combination bait hound hunt,this guy is more a thief than a outfitter.
