Lots of members bear hunt. I never have. A buddy got a black bear (Manitoba) several years ago and invited me over for supper. Bear roast! It was delicious! Colour, texture and fat taste reminded me of beef. For the members who hunt bear, where on the scale of wild game, would you rate bear meat? Thanks!

Roast bear meat can taste more like roast beef than roast beef does.

Dump bear on the BBQ, not so much.

I rate it among the best eating, right up there with moose or caribou

Look to your front, mark your target when it comes!

I cook my bear roasts in a slow cooker. The rest of the meat is made into pepperoni. Bear liver is awesome served with fried onions and garlic mashed potato. My all time favorite wild game meat is Elk and I have tasted Musk Ox meat it is unreal such a great flavor.

Good to know. We have lots of bear in our part of the country. For me, and you can laugh, my most favorite wild meat is rabbit. I've been eating it since my Pop was bringing them home in '67.

My buddy was lucky enough to hunt mountain goat in BC last year. He got a good sized Billy! They quartered it in the mountains and he was able to save me a backstrap. Nice looking meat. I seared it then put it in the slow cooker. I tried a piece after 8 hours on low. Still tough. Gave up after 12 hours! Great flavour but tough! You just kind of nawed on it then swallowed a chunk.

Honks,
 
Old Billy-goat.....
 
Sounds like alligator meat;
The longer you chew it, the bigger it gets!

I have tried bear meat several times over the decades, I can't eat it, even at gunpoint.
