    Default Black Bear Heart/Liver

    Does anyone salvage these parts on a black bear. I normally get liverwurst made out of the ungulates I kill but was wondering about the quality of a bear liver and heart. I'd image they are pretty similar to a caribou, etc., especially in the spring.
    I guess its edible if you just treat it like other parts and cook it thoroughly.

    Heart on any wild big game is good. Quit eating liver a long time ago after some bad caribou.

    Fresh Black bear liver and onions is great. It is very mild.

    I always save both heart and liver from black bear taken in spring. The liver flavor is very mild with little of the strong liver taste of beef liver. The heart is typically tender and very flavorful. I can't comment on fall bear, but unless there is something notably wring with heart or liver I will always harvest it. I consider it a treat.
