    Good idea! I filled ziploc to get the frozen ice and it was wet everywhere when it melted. using the 4L milk jars are surely a better idea. Just bought 11 meat hooks and I am going to hang the meat under the tree/cool areas to cool the meat first during the hunt. will go out again this weekend.
    Life is too short and time goes too fast. Hunt, hunt, and hunt....

    Something to keep in mind spring bear hunting if you are successful and plan on hunting some more. If you can find a creek with a bridge over it, hang the bear quarters off the bridge above the water in the shade of the bridge, the air moving in the shade of the bridge is cool. I have used this a few times, works like a charm. Well done on the bears.

    My in-law used to hunt in Boston Bar since 2009. According to his words, the area got worse and worse every year, and finally in 2016 he stopped hunting bear there and moved up to Merritt for spring bear.

    I slow cook most of my bear meat, except for tenderloin, backstraps and heart / liver which are for stir-fry.

    Wow I never thought about that, that's a smart idea. I found bugs are less dense near creeks / rivers.
