Quiet bunch, aren't we? Is there still a trapping season for black bear in Maine, or anywhere else in the northeast? I've shot a few, but I can only imagine what it would be like to trap one.

2006 was the last season for trapping the black bear with the steel live restraint. Now, to trap them, you have to use the belisle foot snare.

That would be the ultimate trapping experience, in my eyes and something I'll probably never be able to do. Oh well, I can dream.

Better do it soon. This November there will be most likely another ballot question to end bear trapping (and running bears with hounds too). We defeated it a few years ago, but them animal rights outtah-statahs never stop coming.

That being said, a few people I know have tried to trap a bear. I can't imagine walking the trap line and hoping to find a bear around the corner. Ultimate indeed.

It sure is fun. I am trying to do it again. Very exciting, much more so than the Bear that I shot :D
