    Re: Bag a bear, get a free cookbook

    It's funny the attention this is getting this year for some unknown reason. It's year 5 of the 5 year plan/hunt and the Division has always given successful bear hunters this cookbook. I have mine somewhere. But bear meat is excellent and only needs be treated like any good beef. No need for special recipes. The friends and family that tried my bear several years back were astounded that it taste like beef. Guess they were expecting something bad, like McDonald's drive through burgers.

    This makes me hungry.. Bear steaks are the shit!

    But I cannot stand being near a beat that's getting cut up. Just something about how meat smells when your butchering it..

    I butchered my own and don't remember the meat smelling bad, but I do the fat layer which I cut off hours after shooting my bear. That was greasy stuff and smelled bad! I trimmed it all off and hung the meat for a few days before finishing the butchering job. We're overrun with them in Sparta again this year, so maybe I'll bag another one this season.

    A lot also depends on whether it was a clean kill or not. I've seen some pretty awful kills, where I wanted to punch some people. Don't pull the trigger unless you can make a clean shot.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Yea it could be the fat I smelled. But for some reason I just couldn't handle it.

    Re: Bag a bear, get a free cookbook

    When I lived in VT there was special bear stew recipe that was popular. I post it here for everyones use.

    1) Put a large iron pot over a fire and add bear meat and your choice of vegetables, cover with water.
    2) Add a large rock to the pot.
    3) Cook for several hours covered.
    4) When done remove the bear meat and vegetables and discard.
    5) Eat the rock.
