That is a pretty one. He would make a nice mount. Can you get a tag for that area?

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

Yes, tags are available for the area. Haven't decided yet if I am going to get one or not though. Anyone like to eat bear?

I love bear meat when it's handled and prepared correctly. That's a beautiful colored bear and would make an excellent trophy. It also looks to have some good size to it.

It was definitely a big bear. I would love to try bear sometime. I think it would be a beautiful trophy. Hopefully I will be seeing the bear around some more ;)

So for the being properly handled, sounds like a better idea to have it professionally processed? I am not very experienced processing game yet. Only my 3rd season hunting :blush:

that would probably be the best, ideally getting the meat cooled down will also help.....

I appreciate the info! Hopefully can decide pretty quick if I want to pursue a bear this season, seeing the season opens on Sunday I don't have a lot of time, lol.

That's definitely a beautiful bear! Bear meat is delicious! It is even a leaner meat than deer and elk. All the fat is on the outside of the meat, just trim the fat off and you'll have a great tasting steak. The meat also makes some awesome sausage. I never could talk my mother and sister in trying bear meat until I tricked them. I told them I was going to cook two packages of elk steak one from my brothers elk and one from my elk. Told them to tell me which one they thought tasted better. One package was actually bear meat. They tried em both and ended picking the bear meat. They weren't very happy with me for tricking them into eating bear.

Haha!! I am sure they weren't happy. I have heard that about the fat and to ensure that it is all removed. Making me salivate thinking of a nice steak now (either bear or elk)!!

I'll definitely agree that having it processed is a good idea unless you have the room, the tools, and the knowledge to do it right. But remember that gutting correctly and cleaning the body cavity out ASAP and as thoroughly as possible in the field are the make or break of good tasting meat be it a rabbit or a bear.

You'll like the bear meat!

 That is a pretty bear, the meat is awesome, the hams done up is one of my favourites, bear lard makes the best pie crust you'll  ever have. Some great tips above, YD nailed the cleaning part.

I love elk meat but would take bear before elk any day of the week

Black bear meat is good and very lean.  That is one of the best looking black bears I have seen, only on better is a glacier (aka blue phase) bear.

22magnum, I think I might take care of this one ;)

 

Awesome to hear about how good the meat can be!!! I think I might go ahead and try to grab a tag for my area this year. Only 8am and I am already thinking about grilling some steaks (wish they were bear so i could try) !!

 

Thanks for all the advice!

I have always heard the bear meat don't taste that good, but glad to hear that is not the case if it is taken care of correctly after the kill. Now, I will plan on bear hunting because I didn't want to kill a bear just for sport and a rug. If it taste better than elk, then I can't believe what I have been missing because elk is the best meat I have ever had. And in CA, black bear is so much easier to harvest than deer, or elk for sure. But, I would take it to a butcher to be done right.
