I usually set my smoker at about 200 and check internal temp after 2-3 hours. Bring internal temp to 165 for a while and you are good to go.

I think it's much more than a chance of carrying trichinella (which causes trichinosis) - in some populations, it's extremely prevalent and unavoidable if you don't handle the meat accordingly. Here's one of many articles:

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/trichinosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20378583

I would stick to the 160 degree rule - note that it is higher than the newer 145 degree rule for domestic pork, which is safer than it used to be.

Good luck with your bruin dishes. Post some photos!

- Here's an interesting article from Steve Rinella in which he recommends at least 137 degrees - not so sure about that!

I like to have a nice pot of stew on the stove at trapping camp.Hearty and delicious after a day on the line.
Boiling is a foolproof way of safely cooking all wild meat.
Another tip-make sure you clean and disinfect your tools like knives and meatgrinders after processing wild meat.
A jug of bleach at camp has lots of uses,and a couple drops in the crickwater bucket will keep you from getting sick if you cant boil it.

Some wrong information is in Bernie's video clip.
One of the species of the worms does not die with freezing for 3 weeks.
The second is 165*F is the recommended rate not 160*f
if he had looked at the CDC info there are cases per million people listed which was not 50 for the USA per year.

but what's a little tingle in your tummy really like, usually the effects are not diagnosed until long after the encounter.

Looks great. When the kids were little, with no preconceived ideas I would say bear meat was a favourite of all the game meats.

I think the ribs are about the best part of a bear.
