    Cooked some black bear steaks on my back yard grill today. A little chewy, but very tasty.
    Baked some 'taters in the coals, and had a mixed green salad.

    Any marinade? I've never had bear but from what I've read, marinading over night helps with the chewieness. I guess the same can be said for most game meat though.

    Looks good! Looks really good!!!!

    I guess it's a holdover from when our 5 children were too little to chew meat, but I grind nearly everything,,, deer or bear, the "steaks" go in the grinder and later become chili, or wild rice jambalaya, or spaghetti sauce, or S.O.S.,,,

    Its more challenging with bear since it is suggested that it is cooked thoroughly. I have had the pleasure of eating several blue berry fed black bears here in MN and they are tasty. Bear burger is really good and bear brats and fantastic. I like steaks medium rare so mine seemed to be on par with yours when they are fully cooked. Still full of flavor but chewy. I will add that I think they taste better than beef when fully cooked.

    I love bear, but not grilled. Chewy is the right word. I always cook it low and slow, or use it ground.

    always make sure it is cooked well. All bear meat carries trichinosis.

    This is half right. Always cook bear thoroughly, bear meat may contain trichonosis.

    Its a precaution, as with pork, rabbit, and some other meats.

    Looks good. A buddy and I got a couple in Canada many years ago and we cooked the smaller one for the department guys we worked with in a pig roaster. It came out perfect!!
