I would really like to kill a booner bear and make a rug but have never cut bear meat before. I have never done this because everyone I have talked to about it has told me that the big bears are not fit to eat[tough]. But I could'nt morally speaking see myself wasting a whole animal just for the trophy. So is there anyone who hunts bear with any regularity that could give some advice as to what cuts of meat are good and how to cut one up and how long do you let em hang. I have cut deer,moose,beef etc before but am clueless as to how to cut up a bear. I have a homemade cooler for hangin so I am really willing to try it at least once.
