The State's bear biologists estimate that the areas of Maine where we hunt have population densities well over one bear per square mile.

I started Foggy Mountain when I was 18 — hard to imagine! Back then, I was ten feet tall and had a black beard. The hunting world soon became infected with my excitement for black bear hunting, and black bear graduated from vermin status to the honor of trophy game!

I am very excited to introduce you to Brandon Bishop. He has a lot more hunting experience than I had then. He was very fortunate to have plenty of bear, deer, coyote and turkeys right in his back yard. And he is so full of energy that I can’t even hope to keep up - and I thought I was fierce in the woods! Talented young guides like Brandon are rare, and we are lucky to have him take over the Foggy Mountain operations.
