    I am having it fleshed and tanned for now. I may end up doing a rug. I had my first balckbear harvest by rifle last fall in Maine and am having a half mount done of it.

    Congrats Kelly. I’m jealous since I didn’t find mine. But awesome bear. Where did you get him at?

  • Kelly's avatar

    @Randy yeah, I was lucky that I could see it the entire time! There'd be no tracking in that terrain. Even with watching it until it dropped and a hole the size of a half dollar, there wasn't a trackable blood trail.

    That’s a great trophy. Are you going to eat him?

  • Kelly's avatar

    @Stephen yes, I only harvest what I am willing to consume.

    @Kelly I’m only curious because I watch “Meat Eater,” and he says bear meat is very good and bear fat is good to cook with. Never tried it but, I will one day. Hope you enjoy him, the bear, lol
