Then, bears like to do a little swimming in the mud
Then, bears get seasoned and beautifully browned
Then, bears get placed into tacos
Finally, bears get eaten. The end.
Been perusing through the various forums this morning, I like to bear hunt so I was checking out the various threads. I bear hunt in Maine over bait. About five years ago I harvested a bear that stunk so bad it never made it into any pot and had to throw it away it smelled do bad. I've had a couple of Maine guides tell me that every so often they will come across a bear that smells really bad. We eat bear meat all year round. I am not a roast or bear steak person because I like to eat my meat on the rare side and I fear trichinosis from the bear meat. I have a game meat processor who makes great hamburger and sweet Italian sausage. The processor uses the fat from prime rib when he grinds the hamburg and sausage meat. I like making chili with half hamburger and half Italian sausage, very tasty. Bear meatballs and sausage in a pasta sauce is a great treat also.Great post! I’m not sure I’d take bear over anything as Wayne Allen.....but, we do like bear. Of the (3) spring bear we’ve taken, they were delicious. Our last bear, killed by my wife....we had to throw away. I don’t know what he was eating, to fatten-up for winter, but when cooking it...the smell would make you leave the kitchen. And, the taste was beyond description! Maybe all he had to eat was “bore” mink and skunk! memtb
