Bear Burgers and Venison Steaks

February 28th, 2007 · No Comments · News

The latest Big Game figures from the 2006-7 season have just been released by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. While I haven’t yet eaten any local bear, the venison steaks earlier this week weren’t bad (it’s an aquired taste).

Check out the detailed reports for some more interesting statistical data. I like the euphemisms “harvest” and “taken”. Also, 29 bear taken in Clinton County – 15 in the towns of Plattsburgh, Peru, and Saranac. Wow!
