"Bear Hunting Success Begins When You Pick Your Guide"
Black bear hunting is our
livelihood - not just a seasonal sideline. It is our full time commitment to make your Foggy Mountain
black bear hunt a complete and memorable experience.
The Most Productive Black Bear
Hunting Outfitter in Maine, the United States or Canada.
You want a guide who produces consistent
black bear kills even in years when natural
adversities exist - years when inexperienced guides and hunters fail to produce.
Maine's Wayne Bosowicz is regarded
as the dean of black bear hunting guides.
Wayne and his close knit staff of fully licensed master guides set the world standard that others can only dream of achieving. And no expense is spared to continually raise that standard.
Record-book black bear are consistently taken in both Maine and Ontario
year after year. Our trophy room shows the results.
Unsurpassed opportunity to hunt a
Trophy Black Bear.
We strive to give our hunters the shooting opportunities expected of a truly world-class hunting outfitter. This requires knowledge, skill, effort, advance preparation, and experience.
Bear hunting is our life, so no matter how you cut it, a part time guide can not give a full time commitment.
You kill'em, and we take care of the rest.
Foggy Mountain will track and retrieve your game, field dress and skin it.
We prepare the meat and hide for your trip home. Our freezers will preserve the fresh quality of your meat and hide. We prepare your trophy for your taxidermist, or we can introduce you to one of
our highly skilled local specialists. Meat cutting and packaging is
also available locally.

"Thank you for the awesome hunt. I am extremely happy with my first bear. I can't wait to come back and do it again. The cabin that you put my wife and I in was very nice. As you know, my wife is particular on where she stays and it was above even her standards. This has been one of the best hunting trips I have ever been on, not only killing the bear but catching smallmouth in the river and seeing all the additional wildlife was amazing. I can't thank you enough." – Aaron Lehnen, Middletown, MO, September 2012.
"I enjoyed every day in that cabin. I really enjoyed the hunt and everything we did. I would like to come up again sometime. We all had a blast. Thanks for everything you did for us." – Dennis Troyer, Fresno, OH, September 2012.
"I so enjoyed getting to know you and the other guides. George told me months before what a great man you are and truly I learned this first hand." – Christina Felix, Kershaw, South Carolina, September 2011.
"Even his competitors agree that Wayne Bosowicz is the best black bear guide in the world."

"Life is full of surprises...Your
bear hunt shouldn't be one of them!"
We know that a bear hunt is a major event in many folk's lives, so we take it very seriously. You can arrive with confidence, not apprehension.
Hunting in Maine
Hunt in perhaps the most beautiful country in the world. You will be surrounded by an explosion of
fall foliage color and you will never be too far from a delicious Maine lobster dinner.
Hunting in Ontario
Hunts at our northwestern Ontario lodge
are extremely productive. The long sub-arctic day affords ample opportunity to hunt and to experience the most awesome pike, walleye and trout fishing imaginable.
Private & Flexible Accommodations
Unlike hunts with most outfitters, lodges and
sporting camps, Foggy Mountain's guests are not doubled up in a bunk
house or room with other guests. Your party will enjoy the privacy of your
own sleeping room, and the good night's sleep that is important for
a good hunt.
You have a choice of lodging options
- whether you come alone, with a large group, with your spouse or
whole family. Both American or Housekeeping Plans are available.

"Just a word about the great hunt that was afforded me there in Maine. I have been to Montana twice, one producing a 5x5 bull, and two hunts for black bear. The hunt in September at Foggy Mountain was the best of all hunts I have been on. Your professionalism and caring about all aspects of the hunt, quarters, food and making sure that our wants and needs were taken care of. You are the very best and finest bear outfitter in all the northeast. Thanks." – Ron Marlett, Auburn, New York, September 2011.
