"What are you going to do with all that bear fat? ...

Eat it. And, use it for bark tanning, leather conditioning, salve making, soaps and lotions, achy joints and teaching folks about rendering.

"You can't eat that. It's like eating a racoon!" Said one of the hunters that stood by watching the local butcher skin his over 400 lb black bear. I am pretty sure that he took the life of that bear for sport and maybe just the skin and probably threw all that meat away. Which is a part of this that I struggle with emotionally and spiritually sometimes.
