The taste of bear meat

Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll be getting out for spring bear.

As for dumping bears Wonksy, those sorts of acts are what builds opposition to ethical hunting and gives anti's lots of ammo, thanks for nothing. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

Wonksy its wrong to dump any game. So is bragging about it. Sure hope you were just joking.

Its our responsibility as hunters to be ethical at all times.

The taste of bear meat

Bears are some of the best eating critters there are. Most people that have bad experiences have eaten meat that was improperly cared for. That being said, the worst smelling meat was an Alaskan black bear that had been feeding on fish.

But just killing them for the hide or to just kill them is plain stupid.

I've never had it but I've heard that fish fed bear meat is not even edible.

bear meat

I've been a trapper for a good many years . I have taken a good # of bears and never 1 went to waste . lf I had enough for myself then I gave the rest to some friends that love it as well as myself . Follow Don F's advice and take off all the fat possible . I got 2 this year and my son got 1 so we had 3 bears I got 1 on my liciences and one on a nusance permit . All were distributed among friends . We hade enough for ourselves . I will continue to trap them as long as i know there is somebody that will eat it . If my self or other friends didn't eat it I would leave the bears alone . I mainly trap them for the meat not the glory . I have a friend that has trouble with them every year so I always get my bear The # of bears in Nova Scotia are really on the increase. OH BTW , I put a roast in the oven whenever I got home and it was out of this world Delicous

Fish eating bears ? I guess that would be like trying to eat a Cormerant or Marganzer duck . Meat with a fishy flavor !!!! YUCK !!!!!!!!

I have had backstraps, jerky, and sausages with bear meat. All were delicious.

Right on SG,

I was about to say, if all else fails, make sausage with it.

Pretty hard to get a bad sausage!
