When my uncle was alive, he always got a crop damage bear from the PGC every fall. The warden would call when he was on his way....sometimes it was midnight or later when they showed up. Sometimes they would stick around and help us hang and skin them.
As WW stated, bear roasts are excellent. They have the same taste and texture as roast beef. One Sunday a month, my uncle would do a roast. When word got out, folks would stop by for diner. Everyone was pleasantly surprised by the roasts.
I only every ate one bad bear. It was a sow with young cubs that was shot by a farmer in the Bald Eagle Valley. Those cubs had that bear run down ...no fat....chewiest thing I ever tried to eat. It was so tough you couldn’t get a fork in the gravy.
