Anyone ever try using bear (black) to make sausage (talking mainly about a fresh breakfast style sausage)? Seems like it would make sense, especially if mixed with a little pork trimmings...

Yes. Bear sausage is a big winter treat here. I've had mine made 100% into sausage/ bologna and people ate the heck out of it. It was made by a local butcher who processes deer, too, and he makes all kinds of deer bologna, as well. Great use for bear meat

Make fresh brats out of the bear I shot, very tasty. Didn't use any pork either.

I make lots of Italian sausage out of ground bear meat mixed with pork(trimmed bearmeat is very lean).I use the shank and neck meat,(the tougher cuts) for sausage or stew.

Yes I have. That's all I do with my bear meat. Any sausage recipe will work. Bear smokies are my favourites

late to this post.... sorry.. but yes i make italian with it spicy and regular and love it... i always mix pork fat in mine... also any braised beef recipe or Rosso bocco recipe is great with bear and i leave the bones in mine for extra flavor.. i use the fat to cook with and to make the best bannock. IMO
