When the topic of hunting comes to mind, many people think of blaze orange, deer stands, or maybe your favorite bird dog. They remember enjoying spending time with friends and family, taking part in an annual tradition, or else starting a tradition of their own.

What they may not consider are the benefits of hunting to Minnesota’s economy and habitat.

    Actually, bear meat is tasty, but very greasy. Trying to find a meat cutter willing to take one in is a chore, since the fat in the meat really fills up the meat saws, cutting blocks and hamburger grinders. But otherwise, it tastes very good. Successful hunters are usually very willing to share a couple of packages for you to try. Do it, you'll be surprised.

    I agree with Mr. Johnson that hunting is good for our economy. I do however have an issue with what type of person would bait and kill a bear. A wonderful creature that dances and plays. My deer and bird hunting husband loves wild game, but says bear is unfit for human consumption. Everyone knows that no one outside of S.E. asia eats dog, so what kind of "hunter" is going to go kill a wolf for fun? I am hoping the lawsuit is successful to postpone and then cancel the murder and torture (trapping) of wolves. I also hope that baiting of bears is soon found to be tremendously unfair and UNSPORTSMANLIKE.
