Default Timid bears...................

Even black bears steer clear of the big brown boys and girls. Climb a tree to exit the bruins, but not the blacks...........A crippled bear is like a human being on drugs. Don't stop shooting till the threat is over or, you are food for thought.................Man I love me some human meat with gun smoke and peppery spray..................

What I want to know is when you kill one, do you then eat it?

What if a person is attacked by a rapist or a murderer and kills the threat. The victim ends the threat with lethal force. Do they eat the remains of the attacker? What a stupid F'ng question. Only an Urban Liberal would ask something that ignorant.

Yes because a brown bear is the same thing as a rapist.

If you shoot a bear or any other animal in self defense, often times DWL takes the animal as part of their investigation so there is no way you can eat it.

As far as shooting a bear for food people have been eating bear meat for thousands of years. I found it to be tough and stringy. But I've only had it once. And id be willing to bet I could cook it up nice and tender. Wild game needs some tender southern lovin to reach its full potential.

I have eaten bear several times and never really cared for it. It's like the big game version of squirrel IMO.

I had a professor in college who killed a griz in self defense in Alaska, a bunch of game commissioners loaded the thing and hauled it off. They told him they always take the animal to prevent poachers from shooting an animal then calling it in as SD and taking off with the hyde (or meat if you can stomach a bear)

With some good tender southern lovin, squirrel can come out delicious.

Coon, squirrel, and even possum when properly aged and properly prepared will give pork or chicken a long hard run for their money.

I'd be willing to bet if I had a fresh bear roast cut off and handed to me, I could age it in ice for about 4 days with the plug pulled on the ice chest. Then bore some 3/4 holes to the center and put my medium-large game tenderizer and seasoning in there and slow cooked it in a roux or gravy it would fall apart like every other tough game I've cooked. If it didn't, I'd repeat the process the next time except instead of the holes I'd slice it into steaks, tenderize it, let it marinade in my game marinade for 24-48 hours and A) grill it by searing both sides at a high temp and then cook it slow and low to medium rare. Or B) double batter it in Italian bread crumbs and parm cheese and deep fry it.
