Two of us traveled to NW NJ for our annual archery bear hunt. It did not disappoint. Both of us were able to tag bears. Not monsters but definitely good eating size at about 200#. Soaked the tenderloins in coca-cola for 24hrs seasoned and grilled. Boy was it good. Kind of wish I did not make as much into hamburger as I did.

The other other white meat.

The other red meat. It's my favorite big game animal to hunt and eat. Easier to get out of the woods than elk, moose, etc., and it tastes really good. We do ours in crock pot after searing, adding balsamic vinegar.

Thier is no better burger on a charcoal grill then a bear burger. The marbling in the meat is perfect to keep it moist and flavorful

Yes they are excellent. I'd rather eat bear than deer any day. I have to say that butchering a bear properly is much more time consuming than a deer for me. Most of my bears have been shot in the evenings and it turns into a pretty late night.

Carp of the woods.

Snuffer... I'm with you. I've never had to put Coca-Cola or balsamic vinegar on an elk tenderloin to convince myself it was GOOD...

To each his own! The pic does look tasty.

Bear is definitely among the best meats. Looks good OP.

I have never had a bad bear. 16 for 16 fine to eat. Taste-wise. Can be a bit tough on some cuts depending.
