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.
