you need to find a way to hunt bear over hounds. It’s an absolute blast. Everyone bags on it and thinks you’re just shooting a bear out of a tree and “how hard could that be?” Let me tell ya it ain’t that easy. That tree might be a mile or more in the woods and you better run before that bear gets it second wind And decides to run or fight. And bear grease is a good thing. Render it for cooking and your boots. There’s some older folks where I grew up that greatly appreciate rendered bear fat for baking and cooking. Check out Bear Grease podcast if you like bear hunting stories. Lots of info and fun stories.
