    So what's it really taste like? I've heard really good beef. I'd really like to give it a try just need to find somebody I know that hunts them. Where did you hunt yours at?

    @Wayne I love bear meat. I would say it's beef like but has a bit of a pork taste to it. Honestly, when it's ground like this, you would never know it was any different than beef. I hunted thus particular bear last fall in Colorado. I've also got meat and bear grease from a black bear that we hunted in Virginia last winter.

    @Derek that's awesome man. I need to do some hunting in other states. You get either of them rugged or anything?

  • Derek's avatar

    @Wayne not rugged. I just got the hide tanned and then I have the European mount also. The Virginia bear was actually @Brad's bear that I was just fortunate enough to be able to tag along for and got tons of great bear fat from.

    @Derek that's what you call a good friend right there. People don't come off that bear grease for just anyone lol

  • Derek's avatar

    @Wayne it's honestly my favorite part. We use it for everything anymore.

    @Derek A man of similar taste to us! Bear meat and vegetables from your own garden. Awesome. I just let my kids listen to that podcast of your first experience with hounds on the return trip home from their first hunt with hounds. They loved it

    @Darren we pride ourselves in hunting and gathering our own food. Working more and more on it every day. Thanks for the listen! It was an incredible hunt. If you haven't yet, check out the episode we did all about my bear hunt in Colorado also. Can't wait to hunt bear again, either with hounds or out west.
