I haven't posted... sadly... they are too big ( I'm out of room in my account)
I'll have to see if there is some way of down sizing them.

We are going to eat the meat... Paul wouldn't shoot something that we weren't going to eat. There's just something wrong with that.

Also... the pelt will be come a rug.

It was a long hard day and our bodies hurt like heck today but... it was worth it!

Bears = scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A friend of mine chased her dog who was chasing a 450 lb. bear at about 2:00 in the morning. NOT ME!!!!!! I wouldn't have opened the door for the dog to get out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would have been sitting in the closet with a blanket, pillow, my dog, and a bottle (or 3) of wine - and well, maybe a gun but at least a broom with a REALLY long handle

Well I must certainly say that your hubby is a hunter. You must let me know how the bear meat tastes? It would seem quite hard to skin the bear but please let me know how it goes.

Have a very Happy Monday

Jill and Jolie

OH shpj4, it was hard to skin the bear! It took hours and hours! We'd never done it before though...so maybe next time it will be easier.

As for the taste... I'm not sure
I remember having it as a child...but that's been a long long time.
I'll have to let ya all know.

Thanks everyone for the congrats!

Thanks for the link KE... The site doesn't seem to be working right now..so the photo down sizing will have to wait.

I'll try again tonight after dinner.
