Thanks samy crawler...

Just got a quick look at him downhill about 250 300yds. Sat down and got on my shooting sticks as he walked out of sight. For whatever reason he walked right back out again. Bad move. Ran one through his pump station. He bit at himself and went out of sight. I head down toward him and realize then just how steep the hill was, especially where he had been. I get on blood and track it about 5yds before I see where he plunged off into a steep little ravine with a dry waterfall and poison oak. He was piled up pretty good and I said to myself I hope he's not as big as he looks. But he was big and heavy and hard to move. I flopped him down to the spot where the pics were taken where I was able to get him rolled over and boned out. Pack was heavier than frig and climbing up out of that rocky ravine was sketchy. The pack out from there was grueling as the sun was up and the hill was treeless for a good ways. Got back to the truck and realized my ice was almost all melted as it was day 4. Had to run down to the ranger station and grab a couple buckets of ice from their machine before heading home. Glad I did. Probably saved the meat. Just had it validated and tooth pulled today. Gotta skin and boil the head now. All the meat is packaged and in freezer. Ready to grind and make into meat cigrits.

Never having eaten Bear, what do you do with it? Make sausage? Hell, Iíve live in two states that have black bear, and have only seen two or three in the wild. Never hunted them though.

I plan to grind a bunch for burger, sticks, summer sausage. Also have some "pound steaks" to bread and fry. And roasts. Cut a bunch of loin chops but they're chewy even after pounding em out. Tastes fine just takes forever to chew.

Boiled and measured the skull, 19 5/16". Skull was broken from his death plunge down the waterfall. Jaw bone was bruised too.

It's good for sausage, ground, roasts, even hams or bacon. We're overrun with em up here.

Yes, Tricinosis. I know. Thanks. 160* internal temp or freeze meat for 30 days below zero*. Same with mtn lion. Or pork. Or any other game that eats carrion.

No, one. I've logged out, cleared cookies, browsing history, etc. I can't post a pic in GCC either.

Thanks guys. Not a big rack by any stretch, but I'm a meat Hunter so I'm happy. 3 yr old, and super healthy. Most importantly, he didn't even flinch when I shot him at 260, just rolled his head and died.
My first rifle buck too, always been lucky and got my animals during archery season.

Our weather here has been crappy so far this season, which hasn't left many chances to get out in the woods. This isn't very big but is still meat on the table.

Between work and school, haven't been able to get out into the stand at all yet. Went goose hunting on Saturday and got a 2 man limit. I really think that goose is my favorite game to hunt.

Husband and I both really need to get a couple deer stuck and in the freezer, our meat supply is dwindling rapidly.

It was stupid hot one year and I kinda forgot I had put the head under one of my parts trucks. Walked out to go to work one morning, smelled something awful and thought "shit, somebody musta poached a deer in the creek below the house", then noticed flies buzzing around under the truck.

I worked right next to the woods, so I took it to work with me and grabbed a boatload of houseboat rope and tied the head to the base of a tree and left it for a bit. Went back to check on it and a bear had been coming in and had picked the outside clean for me while the beetles took care of the brain. Didn't take long for the animals to clean it for me

Some friends who were ranchers outside Point Reyes used to leave them for the ranch dogs to chew on. They'd drag them around the yard, the flies were everywhere, so I'm sure they did some.work too. Not sure they hung any of the ones the dogs got though.

Didn't snap pics but, wondering if I came across a poached bear yesterday on my way home from deer hunting. Saw a ton of ravens off the side of the road, turned around and checked it out, as did another car. It was fairly well chewed on but still had meat on the legs and a good deal of guts in it. Head was gone, so I kinda wonder if somebody poached it for the head. Also thought it coulda been a roadkill, though there was no evidence of one being hit in the road. That said, they don't tend to fillet open like a deer when hit by a car, so it coulda been a roadkill that either ran a short distance and died, or was drug off the road by someone. Still sad to see such good meat go to waste
