What meat do you guys take off the bears?  Sausage from quarters and tenderloins for steaks or do you try to take as much as possible like a deer or elk.  Ive never harvested a bear before, sorry for the newb question

All of it, just like a deer or elk.  Good stuff. :tup:

Spring bears are way better then fall bears and a lot less greasy. Mine have all been good and the only time I hear of bad ones is the bears that get into the skunk cabbage. Never killed one in it but I can imagine it would make em a little ripe lol
  :yeah:
We shoot most of our bears in the spring they are better and not so dang greasy!

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Saw someone made corned bear, that's what I want to try.  I've shot two Spring bears and eaten many others, even ones shot near sucker spawning streams, all in Ontario. They all tasted great. I shot a September bear in OR many years ago, also delicious.

My Mother-in-law who is highly hesitant around any wildgame meat recently went back for a second helping of slow cooked spring bear roast from the crockpot.
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
