First bear ever - BIG boar down!
« on: October 17, 2017, 04:55:19 PM »
Just interrupted my deer hunting camp to run home and process up my first bear! Heading back into the woods as soon as I finish processing the meat tonight and will be out through the rest of the week. More details to come soon...will try to update this Sunday or Monday.

Got the meat at least cleaned and frozen. Will have to wait until after deer camp to come back and grind it up. Sooooo much meat. Heading back to the woods now. Just have time for a teaser...but I promise I won't drag this thread on forever. I will write up the WHOLE story (whether you want it or not) as soon as I get back. Now for the teaser - this picture is of my dad, who was hunting with me at the time, holding up the bear paw. He was NOT long-arming it.

Wow, what a tease. Can a bear and a bigfoot cross?
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.
