Good Afternoon! I'll be in the Juneau/Kake area 15 May through the end of the month on a black bear hunt and fishing trip. I moved from North Pole to Montana last year, and currently plan on shipping the meat back to Montana. Anyone in the Juneau or Kake that is interested in accepting black bear meat, please let me know via phone or PM. I take pride in my meat field care, so I assure any interested persons that the meat will be handled with the utmost care.
I plan on taking one bear, and if I find an interested family, I'd be happy to donate as much meat as they like. Here in Montana, my girlfriend and I are still eating-on 1/2 an elk, three deer and two antelope from last year. I would like to see the bear meat go to someone who is interested, if not, I'll ship it and make a ton of sausage. I haven't ruled out shooting a second bear, just depends on the meat disposition from the first bear and the timing during the trip, as I'm well aware meat will not last for two weeks in the field (to all of you who started an admonishing post before reading that last part....stop typing!)
Good luck to everyone who is heading out this spring!
