Re: Bear meat

I like bear roasts cooked low and slow, until it is fall apart tender. Never cared too much for burger, espescially if you are not going to process it yourself, most processors leave too much fat in.

Re: Bear meat

My dad shot a bear back in early 2000's... Some of the finest game I"ve ever had... IMO, if you shoot a bear that lives out in the forest, diet consist of nuts, grasses, meat from deer/scavengering, all natural stuff, the meat is awesome! You shoot a "dump" bear which eats garbage and crap like that, meat is horrible (from wht I've heard)... We did roasts, steaks, brats/sausages.... was great stuff!

Re: Bear meat

actually we are all diabetic after eating that one!! as for how i cook the meat, trim all fat, rub with brown sugar and cook on a low heat for several hours. way better than venison if bears are 200 or less.

Re: Bear meat

I make almost all of the meat into breakfast sausage.........it is literally the best sausage you will ever eat...

Re: Bear meat


I had bear bologna once. My Dad gave me a whole roll that he got from a guy. It was actually pretty good.

If you continue to do what you're doing, you'll only get what you have gotten.
