On The Bear Trail
Many years ago, I was sent to bear camp in the Rangeley region to write a story for The Maine Sportsman. As this year’s bear hunting season kicks off, I want to share that story with you. It’s a long story, so grab your favorite beverage and settle into a comfortable chair, before you begin! I think you will particularly enjoy the story of Bank Bear so be sure to get to that. - george
“It’s the most thrilling experience I know.”
Those were the words of our guide, David Mangin, owner of Kennebago Guide Service in Rangeley, Maine. I took Dave’s comments to be an exaggeration, before our Maine bear hunt began. By the time our hunt ended, I had reached a far different conclusion.
