The VBA helps Maine protect bear Hunting!
There is a referendum coming to a vote this fall that would stop Maine's bear hunting season as we know it today.  While the VBA is a young organization with limited funds we realize the impact this could have on not just the state of Maine but all of New England and indeed the country.  We have sent financial support to Maine Wildlife Conservation Council and hope to help out more in the comimg months.  You too can help go to:  http://savemainesbearhunt.com/


Be sure to post your pictures and success stories on the VBA
