I'm not a Maine hunter, but

here's a little from the Maine Dept. of Fish & Wildlife:


Bear Hunting Permit: Outside of the firearms season on deer, a special bear hunting permit (in addition to a hunting license) is required to hunt for bear. During the firearms season on deer, a person may legally take a bear by virtue of a regular hunting license. The fee for a bear hunting permit is $5.00* for residents and $15.00* for non-residents and aliens. The special permit is not required whentrapping for bear. (*Plus agent fee.)

If you are still unsure, you can email or call them at their contact numbers.
