What To Do With The.bear After The Kill?
Posted 20 August 2012 - 09:42 PM
I've got a few questions about what I can do with a bear after I've brought it down:
1) is getting the pelt made done up for a rug expensive? something I.can do myself or best I go to a taxidermist?
2) can I and or my.dog. eat the meat?
3) any other suggestions other than a full mount?

Field dress and get the hide off and meat cooling down as fast as possible,if you can get the carcass hung in a cooler the night of the kill even better,the next day is good but sooner is better.
Remove all the fat you can as soon as you can to aid in cooling.
Cook roasts up on a rack so the fat in them can drain below the meat.
Steaks/chops/burger is best done on the BBQ so the fat goes away but a frying pan isn't out of the question just remove/trim any fat left over after thawing and before cooking.
When we use burger for spaghetti it is rinsed in a strainer under hot water after pre cooking and anything added to it.
Can ya tell the fat isn't all that palatable?
Cook it as you would good beef but NEVER rare,it should be completely cooked but not burnt.A slow cook temp is best.
Bones, raw or cooked are fine for dogs.

Where in NS do you live or plan to hunt?
Thanks to all on this site who assisted in my best taxidermy season . I hope I am even busier next season and can continue to produce even better mounts.
