preserving the harvest

Elm, it's pretty simple stuff . Just get the size canner you want and the direction book comes with it. Can't go wrong following the manufactuer's directions . It's a great way to keep you food that won't keep any other way . Be bottling bear anytime after the 1st of Oct when the season opens for the snares ....

Put up a bunch of pickled peppers friday night, mmmmmm.
Spent the weekend bringing this years firewood (I cut, split and stacked in April) to the house from my swamp. Getting ready for the North winds.
Still have corn, carrots and Brussel Sprouts (a foul weed to be sure but my wife likes them!) in the garden to put up. Then there will just be squash and pumpkins.

Work is taking me to ME next week and as a coincidence bear season opens up in ME next week Yes . Might be canning bear week after next Thumbs up

I never thought about selling the hide of a bear. How much do you get for one? Planning on hunting Vermont and Pa for bear this year.

Hunter 777, How are ya ? Just wondering what the training was . Now i understand { A little Thick Between the ears } LMAO ... The bears averaged $59.49 and topped $396.00 on the March 2008 fur sale at NAFA . I have never gotten any more than the average for a bear hide . I usually throw them in the garbage . If I didn't like the bear meat ,me and the beat would be at peace ......
