    Agreed, keep it cold & clean then cook to well done temps ... then enjoy!

    Yes I've cooked & eaten a fair amount of bear, it is quite good.  I've heard people complain that it is greasy, but that has not been my experience.

    I have a recipe from an LL Bean cookbook for a bear roast that is my wife's favorite - I'll dig it out later if you like.

    This recipe is taken from the LL Bean Game & Fish Cookbook by Cameron & Jones.

    3-4 lb bear roast, loin or rump.  Trim off most of the fat.
    Poke holes in the roast with a sharp knife & insert 2 or 3 sliced garlic cloves.
    S&P the meat well, lay a few slices of fat under it and roast for 20 minutes at 500 (preheated).
    Reduce heat to 300-325 and roast for 2 1/2 hrs.
    Gravy: Saute 1 chopped onion, 1/2 stalk chopped celery in the drippings. Add 3 Tbl flour, 1 1/2 tsp sage, 1/4 tsp thyme, 1/4 tsp savory, 2 cups beef stock, 1 tbl Worcestershire sauce.
    Serve with mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, cranberry sauce.

    Its really a simple roast, but we really like it.

    None of the recipes in that cookbook have internal temps, they're all old-time recipes. Simple but good.
