Not really needed in this case but there is a physician alert card posted over at predatormasters that you all might think about putting in your wallet.  Not every doctor may think to ask if you hunt and handle wild animals.

Could be one of the reasons of all the bears we shot out of our cabin in Ontario, 20+, we nor the guide ever gutted one.  Simply skinned, quartered and left the gut cavity intact.  Never had meat go bad and these were all June hunts before they banned spring hunting.

Round worms usually aren't a problem, you have to eat the egg to get the disease process, not the worm itself...and they normally just live in the gut.

(There is an unusual process called "Visceral Larval Migrans" where a parasite, in the wrong host, will travel through the host organism looking for the "correct" to live...but in those cases, you'd know it because the animal would be VERY ill looking since the bowel and other internal organs would have holes in them from the worms travels).
Of sorrow and sickness I've known on my way,
But I'm old and I'm nervis,
I'm cast from the Service,
And all I deserve is a shillin' a day.

Yuck, just yuck  :puke:

Why would you even think about eating parasite infested meat?

On a brighter note there's still time to pick up a second bear tag and try again!  :)

And yeah how 'bout some pics!

MP123,
 
You have probably eaten several animals that had parasites and never knew about it.

Yeah, you're right.  But it's different if you know they're there and see them wiggling around.  Not that I'd want to waste meat but some of those parasites can be pretty nasty.

All wild animals have parasites.  The vast majority are not harmful to humans, but there are a few in carnivores that are transmissible to humans.  All cooked meat has no hazard for hunters.  There are NO parasites of deer or elk that are harmful to humans. 
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I think that thing was already dead when you shot it.  The worms flinched when they heard and felt the impact of the bullet.  Making him look alive. :chuckle:

I shot a bear up by Republic a few years ago that had white cysts in the main muscle groups. The bear was an old sow. I boned out the meat and packed it out, but when processing it, I noticed the extent of the cysts. It was pretty bad and made me not eat it. I think the worms would be just as bad.

O man gotta love the criticism! She was pretty mangy but had a full coat no rub marks or anything. She looked pretty in the scope but what you see is not what you get all the time I guess. Now its time to get down to business and go after the big guy that will keep the predator trophy at my house another year. Good luck to everybody, bear season is just about to get good and there should be some good ones hitting the ground soon!

After seeing the pictures, I'd call that a "mercy killing".   :(
If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

When Bernie Madoff did it, it's called a "Ponzi Scheme"
When Government does it, it's called "Social Security"
