Well I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to harvest a nice male NH Black Bear. We were seeing some smaller ones and Jake got a nice one Friday night but this guy stumbled in and presented a good supply of bear meat for the freezer. I always feel a mix of emotions when I harvest any animal large or small. I have always felt the animals I hunt and consume have a far better life than anything grown commercially. We use every part of the game we take and that is a responsibility that we as hunter gatherers take very seriously. It doesn’t make sense to everyone and I understand that. In any case have a safe hunting season.
It’s the second day of bear season here in New Hampshire and things are looking good as far as plenty of bear roaming around. We always look forward to the fall hunting seasons so we can fill our freezers with fresh wild meat. My wife and I especially like bear meat for all kinds of recipes.
