summer sausage info needed

I've never made sausage from bear, but I have from elk & deer. Since that meat's very lean, I always add some beef or pork fat, and that combo turns out very good. Not sure how bear & deer/elk would taste so you might want to try a very small batch.

This past summer I experimented with adding ground turkey to elk (for meatloaf) - needless to say it tasted terrible. So if you experiment, just do a little, or you might end up wasting the meat if it tastes nasty.

If you try combining deer or elk with the bear, do let us know how it turns out. Forgot that bear is a fatty meat... I haven't had any yet, but would like to!

I have made it and used half pork and half bear ,elk, or deer. Whichever you prefer and it comes out awesome. Add what ever seasoning you want.
Good luck
