Bear Hunting in Maine

An ad for this website just came up in my Gmail account.

Sadly, the $1599 “Bear with Hounds” hunt is already sold out, but the good news is that father and son bear hunts are still available, with kids under 18 hunting free!

This page admits that, of the hunters who see a bear, fully half either miss their shot, don’t get one off, or end up wounding the bear.

I’ve always thought big game hunting was priced well beyond what the middle class could afford. I clearly couldn’t have been more mistaken: a five day bear hunting trip can be purchased from these assholes for under $900, lodging included. Link.
