To me, a big brown bear is as top as you get in N. America.

No measurements yet. Hide is being prepped. Looks to be an old monarch.

Typically that is so with brown bears, though interior bears are still eaten a fair amount by residents. There is no meat salvage requirements for brown bears. Black bears, on the other hand, have to be salvaged in most areas in the spring and it is optional in the fall. I have eaten both species in spring n fall and found them good eating.
