I have had the chance to shoot a couple over the years but never pulled the trigger. 
 Even though I could mount one myself or make a rug just never did.
 I have two friends and at least one of them gets one almost every year  or so if I want some meat itís there. Not one of my favorite flavors.,

I understand Iím in the minority, but I prefer Bear over Venison.

It also matters what that animals habitat was

Hunting them though, not my thing, Iím a whitetail guy through and through. If I see one now Iíll shoot it if itís serviceable just bc I love the tablefare but I donít really hunt them anymore. I just want to deer hunt with my bow

I'm with you. I actually am not a big fan of venison at all. I would prefer chicken. But good bear steaks... mmmmm. Even the little ones taste good.

Ate some of the best bear last year 120 lber and had roast corned wow almost better than beef .   If you guys think you have bear problems come to Lyme we have a wildlife rehabilitator in town that rescues around 70 Cubs a year and dumps them off.  Only place I know that has a bruin stock truck

Lots of reasons he gets Cubs mostly roadkill.  The guy is actually pretty cool look him up Ben Kilham.  He's wrote a couple of books and done stuff with national geographic learned a  ton on bear behavior.  All in all neat but comes a point that there's to many.  Before he was really recognized for what he did it would be nothing to see a bear riding around in the front seat of his pickup.  They actually captured this nuisance Bear from Hanover named mink, he took Cubs and relocated her to Pittsburgh with tracking collar and friggin bear all but made it back but got stroked by a car.  Wild thing found its way back without map quest
