We did notify the locals of its whereabouts therefore if they wanted to take any of the meat or organs it was available.

I will attempt to downsize one of the photos so it will post.

OK, I know what your talking about. Thats why we dont go down to the coast to bear hunt. the area that we would be hunting is a salt marsh area and the bears main food is fish, and like you said they smell and taste like old fish. The mountain bears or some good eatin. Dont blame ya for leaving that nasty sack behind

Born on a mountain raised in a cave huntin and fishin is all I crave
