    Thanks, I 've heard good reports on bear meat. being the first bear hunt held in Florida in about 20 years there is a lot of publicity on it right now. with luck it'll go smoothly and bear will continue as an option down here.

    Bear meat is delicious. I've always heard the trick is to get it skinned and cooled down right away so the oils don't start coming out of the fat. That's what ruins the flavor. Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

    When I go back home to FL, I always go hog hunting. On several occasions I've stalked in close to pigs (10 yards) for it to turn out to be a bear. You should have no problem Getting one. Good luck.
