The Mesa you speak of, would that be Grand Mesa? I have many connections to the Grand valley in Colorado.Well it's Saturday the 21st I just got home at 3pm from 10 hours at work. So I Might get to hunt Sunday AM But They say this big job will end mid week & they will try to get me NEXT Friday Sat, & Sunday off. If so I'll spend it on the Mesa trying to fill the elk & Bear tag. Wish I could have hunted more, but when you're making $500+ in over time every week, you shut up and keeeeeeeep working till it ends.
I think that you sent this post on a non-traditional electronic device?Correct me if I'm wrong but this forum is for traditional Muzzleloading hunting, so unless someone can show some videos of Daniel Boones or Simon Kenton's trail camera's we should stick to traditional ways of hunting.
The last and only bear I killed (25 yd bow shot) yielded 2 1/2 gal of bear oil/grease ,the oil as clear as canola oil with NO odor rendering in the kitchen with the wife unknowing in the other room . She still has no idea other than I was told to clean up when done ,and still have 1 1/2 gal 3yrs laterI still have a bear tag in my pocket from being unsuccessful this spring. I'll be watching for one this fall while hunting, it will be open everywhere I hunt. I only enjoy bear meat made into summer sausage myself.
If packing it out I'd be sure to bring a bit of the best fat too, many say rendered bear lard is the best patch lube you'll ever use. Those same people also say that it's best to render it OUTSIDE, that is if you're not a single fellow and aren't itching to become one.
