Are the coats OK?  I guess I got to get used to here, but 1 Aug, coats are thin and not in good shape up North??  Just curious to see why you'd want one so early if they have very thin rugs?  And it isn't for the table fare in the summer....  Is it?  I love spring bear meat, but as the summer comes never had one that taste good?  Curious - so don't release the rant and rave hounds on me.....

Thin or prime they usually end up in pieces and tossed to the yotes. Even the ones I get out whole. It is all about the meat. I have eaten spring and fall bears and they taste the same.

Please elaborate Polar Bear....  Did you know there is three things you need to be a true Alaskan?  That is the third.....  First two are easy, peeing in the Yukon and killing a griz, it was the thrid that never got me to "True" resident status.........

The ones I ate (Black Bears) there were awful in the fall, so pretty good here, hmmm, I have to give some a try, thanks for the info makes it easier to understand now...  Even AK Fish and Game doesn't require the harvest of meat in the fall for the very reason I asked...

I am ready to go as of today. Gear has all been gone thru, taking my .270 this year, shooting good. Vehicle has been gone thru and is ready to go. Bags are packed. Maps. Everything. All I need is a block of ice, some apples, and it's go time.

I will be looking for the bruiser that made this mess;

Yes cohoho Bear skins are legal to sell.  With certain stipulations!  It has to be the whole skin with paws and claws attached.  If you want to sell the skull it has to be in the skin!

You can tell that the picture is not of mine, since there is no corn showing.

Its nice to be able to get out, but the hides on larger bears are no good, super thin and rubbed usually, the only downfall.

I won't be out on the opener for bear, as I'll be in Oregon elk hunting instead, for a few days. But I've got a spot all picked out for the following weekend where I plan on calling in and killing a bear. Don't care much about the hide as I don't have the money nor a place to put it if I did have it done. But I've got lots of freezer space for all the meat, that's what I'm after. Not to mention the chance to save some of next year's fawns.
