    Default aging black bear meat?

    Getting ready to go on our first black bear hunt and the thought occured to me. Does aging black bear make a difference or matter at all? What your experience in the matter?

    depends on the weather... if warm get it put away... my last falls bear aged over a week and is fine... but we were near freezing every night and the bagged meat stayed very cool... Bear meat will sour fast if given the opportunity so meat care is very important. though it should be cooked like pork... it can stand some aging with out damage if done correctly but i have NOT found it necessary

    Right on the money. Could not have said it better myself. It is not necessary and does not add anything.
