@VikingsGuy knows how to cook up a bear. I've only had bear 2x and his was, by far, the best. I might have tried harder to kill one in AK, had I known they could be that good.I just had about a .5lb hamburger made of this bear. Man, that was good. I remember the last bear I shot, we tried burgers with that one, but it was awfully chewy and gristly. On this one I was a lot more careful with trimming away the junk and actually ran the burger meat through the meat grinder twice. That's probably the way to go.
Also, my wife sliced up some steak the other night and made Asian stir fry. That also was very good.
Bears are not elk or deer, but they sure can be good eating if handled the right way.
Overly kind, but I do believe I posted the "recipe card" for the pulled Korean BBQ recipe on an elk thread - it does work really well with bear.
