Jersey bear down on opening day

ALL RIGHT!!!

 I am hoping someone  on the NJ Sister Site bagged 1 of the possibly 2 Black Bears that were following me around in late April during NJ Spring Turkey Season in Ringwood State Park.

  I almost pulled the Trigger on one of them. He chose not to walk up the Rocky Trail . Bead on the Nose + Copper Plated"4s was next.

   Great Picture above.

  Below is the medium sized Black Bear that decided to  walk parallel  to me from above with Sneaky side looks- lol.

Not bad.  Do you keep the meat, or donate. I love bear meat. 

I also like bear. I’m having it cut into steaks and the rest ground. Butcher is making me 10 lbs each of Hot Italian Sausage and cheddar bratwurst.  I’ll make other sausages from the ground left over.

Bear maple blueberry breakfast sausage! 

So you have made into steaks?  Well done steaks hopefully but that doesn't sound great.  Do you cut them up for stews or braise them all?

You need to reach 160F for three minutes to avoid trichinosis. So not rare, but not burnt to a crisp either.

Getting it out of the woods to a dirt road was easy. At least for me. I did the phone-a-friend. In this case, my best friend’s 29 year old son. I gutted and dragged his first PA buck when he was knee high to a grasshopper and in the stand with his late grandfather who was like a second father to me growing up. So the “kid” owed me one. He will be richly rewarded in less than 2 weeks at our NY (Otsego Cty) deer archery camp. Beer and brats will be my thanks to his young back.

160 is considered well done.  Def want to be sure no trichinosis.   I'm sure there are lots of recipes etc for it. Enjoy.  

I would like to get one NY bear sometime.  Never have even had one on cam here.  Good and a bad thing.  But I might get up to the Adirondacks for a gun hunt and never know.
