Default bear

Was watching something on vs. about hunting in wy or montana and they took out a grizzly. Was wondering if people eat bear?

I don't hunt, just target shoot. Not against it, but just feel you should be doing it not for sport. Not saying I am right, just my opinion. Understand deer, turkey, etc. But I have never seen anyone in my area serve bear. So was wondering if I just haven't been exposed to it. I figure a grizzly has a few hundred lbs of meat on it, it would feed lots for a long time...

Yes, some people eat bear. I haven't had the chance to try any, but would like to. It's not very common.

yes we do and its damn tasty, by itself bear is very lean and you need to add fat (pork) to it but yes it is very tasty. my inlaws have a yearly hunt and put on a bear burger cook-out.

Make sure it is thoroughly cooked. Use the same temperature guide lines as pork. Bear meat can be infected with Trichina same as pork especially wild pig.

My friends dad many years ago mixed about 50 % bear with 50% pig and made breakfast sausage. Best sausage I remember eating.

Black bear stew in heavy gravy.......mmmmmmmmm....and if no one told you it was bear, you'd swear it was an outstanding pot roast!

It's that good! I bet orangello would love it!!!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Yes, exactly, just like pot roast but it has to be cooked right.
