As of Thursday morning, after just 2 1/2 weeks of hunting, hunters in Maine have already tagged 2,649 bears. That’s more bears than were tagged throughout all of the seasons — bait, hounds, trapping and without the aid of any of those techniques — in 2019 when a total of 2,370 bears were tagged. Because hunters have been removing far fewer bears from the landscape than Maine citizens have determined is optimal, the state’s bear population has grown to about 35,000 over the past 15 years, according to Nate Webb, the DIF&W’s wildlife division director.
