Hey guys, I know its winter and the Bears are fast a sleep! But were planning our annual Widow/ Squapan fall Bear hunt! We sure hope its not our last! Anyway, I got a call from Brian and Mike from Widow hunt 2013 today and got thinking, A few of you guys have messaged me in the last couple months and said your were in. But I have not heard back since. Right now we are half booked with confirmed deposits, 4 more pending and a couple spots open at this time. So those of you that wanted in please get ahold of us by email or phone and confirm your spots and we can work out the deposit options, Also anyone wanting to donate to save the bear hunt can send it to Squapan Mountain Outfitters po Box 41 Mapleton ME, 04757 CC save the Bear hunt. Thanks so much! P.S. Black Widow will be giving a Bow to the Traditional Bowhunter who take the largest Bear during Widow Week!!! Its going to be another great week! Tony

Hi Tony, How does ground shrinkage factor into determining the largest bear? If it is near a state record at your stand and weighs in as just average at camp, you would think there would need to be some adjustment for ground shrinkage?

Well, guys, here's the deal. I'm waiting to hear from a job. If I get it, I'm going to retire from the police dept. So far, Its looking good as for as the job goes. If I get the job, no Vacation time for 1 year. This has been my favorite hunt of the year, and It's really kills me not to make it. I'm rooting for everyone to get a bear, but I'm rooting extra hard for Kent, Shawn, Jim and Monk, you guys really put your time in. It'll come together this year. Hey Mark, just letting you know, I didn't forget about that bow, well, not much anyway, just haven't had the time to get a box for a 66" bow.

Ok guys here's an update on the up coming fight to save maines bearhunting. We need to raise a lot of money to fight this by November or we dead in the water. 1.5 million dollars! We need help from all sportsmans. Even if you don't like baiting or even bear hunting we need to stand together. Today its Maine Bear hunting. It could be deer hunting in your state tomorrow! These people will not stop! If this passes it will cripple the economy in Nothern Maine! Loss of 900 jobs, Lodges will shut down, It will hurt our moose and deer populations, The will and are killing our spring fawns and calves.Not to mention our nusence problems we have now will sky rocket! Its a bad deal! So guys we need your help! If anyone can donate what they can to save our bear hunting please do. You can send it to Squapan mountain outfitters @ po box 41 mapleton ME, 04757 or go to www.savemainesbearhunt.com I can promiss you! Maine will be there when these people land in your back yard! Thanks so much! Tony
