I'm going on my first bear hunt this fall. I will be out 10 days.
if i get lucky enough to get a bear, what is important in the field?
It seems fairly straightforward to skin the bear. Where is the best place to cut to keep the feet with the hide?
I am planning on making a european mount of the skull. So, I don't have to worry about carefully skinning the head and fleshing the nose and eyes.
But now what? What is the best way to preserve the hide until I get back to civilization?
Any other adivce?
Any good videos that show the whole process?
