THE SWEETEST MEAT: BLACK BEAR
"To find the best-tasting game meat, you have to earn it. As the cold Alaskan winter approaches, bears flock to the high country of Alaska's Chugach Range while feasting on cranberry and blueberry. This is the best time of year to see lots of animals, but the real challenge is being able to reach the bears. As summer turns to fall, the bears have exhausted low-elevation fruit and their quest to fatten up pushes them into higher and less accesible terrain. To gain access, you must bushwack up a creek and climb all the way into glaciated terrain. After hiking for a day through rugged crumbling shale and crossing a glacial runoff in his socks alone, Steve reaches a prime spot. To lighten his load in preparation for the climb ahead, he leaves all his non-esssential gear behind as he makes his way into the Alpine highcountry for bears. The hard work and long hike pays off, as berry-fed black bears provide some of the finest tasting meat available to the American hunter. The meat is so good, that Steve plans to fry it in it's own fat as a celebratory meal if he is lucky enough to land a bear on this trip. Eating as much meat as possible is strategic as well, seeing as getting the meat back out presents it's own set off challenges. Depending on the size of the bear, Rinella may have to make two trips down the mountain to get the hide and all of the meat out.
