You may have heard the expression: YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT! Well, that is true for bear. The first bear I killed many years ago had been feeding on a dump. The meat was so bad you could not cook it in the house. The taste was so bad, even the dog would not eat it, cooked or raw. Since then I have killed nine other bears that have fed on natural foods or sweet baits and their meat has been very tasty! I love the steaks and roasts and we make summer sausage with pepper jack cheese that brings rave reviews.
