..........Mark Buehrle is receptive to skipping his final start so a young pitcher can take his turn Thursday, but no decision has been made.

"I got my 200 innings, finally got that 10th win [Friday], so there's nothing else really out there to shoot for personally," Buehrle said before going on a bear-hunting trip with Thome, Pierzynski and Jermaine Dye. "Obviously, going out with a 'W' would be nice, but if they want me to pitch in my next start, I'll be out there."

I can see Burles and Thome in hunting gear but AJ and JD?.....:rolleyes:
hehehe I would love to see some photos of those two.

I believe I've read that JD is one of the most enthusiastic hunters on the team. I think he got his scar wandering around in the woods.

Me neither. I would hardly call it "sport" at all.

What if the bears had guns? Short of that, maybe some big knives?

Buehrle bagged a bear, theres a piece on it now. Its a very strange article Buehrle seems to have a man-crush on Thome.

Please, you and I both know this country is seriously overpopulated with bears.

Mark Gonzales has this on the hardball section of the Tribune this afternoon and apparently the Cubbie Kool Aid Drinkers were out in force condemming this, Buehrle and the Sox organization as a whole in the comments section.

At least Buehrle and company actually hunted and didn't do this:

I've never tasted bear, so my knowledge is just as second- or third-hand as yours. But I had a supervisor who told me that the back straps on a bear were quite good. He was a Cubs fan, so I wouldn't trust his taste in anything.

A bear was hit and killed by an SUV a couple of blocks from my apartment on my street in Juneau. Before Fish and Game could remove it, someone came by and cut its face and claws off (presumably for sale on a black market) and cut the meat from the bear's back (presumably for the freezer).

The best place in the U.S. for bear hunting is Alaska. For outsiders (people not from Alaska), bear hunting in Alaska costs thousands of dollars, just in the permit and the required guide. A hunter is only allowed one bear per year. There are four Game Management Units, and a hunter can only take one bear from any single Game Management Unit over four years. Bear hunters and guides are sometimes killed for stupid reasons. I had a story in Field & Stream a couple of years ago about a bear-hunting guide who was maimed by a wounded bear, but he survived.

I don't like brown bear,but a nice spring black bear is good for stew,burgers,& steaks if you marinate it well.I don't hunt anymore because of health problems but after i got our of the military in the 70's we lived for it,until it got so crowded that they had to install a lottery(elk).Back then we would pack in and stay for 2 or 3 weeks.It was heaven.

"Hey Jim, want to go hunt Bears?"

"Sure Mark. I hear Rex Grossman is an easy target."

Maybe Kenny & Ozzie can send Gonzales, Contreras, Cintron, Uribe, and the gascan crew out to hunt bear with their bare hands, the way it was meant to be done!

Well the country, especially Chicago, is seriously overpopulated with Cubs.

I rather doubt that a bear would take kindly to being clouted over the head with a metal folding chair.

Wow, he took a bear down with a bow. That's gotta be an awesome feeling. If it was just a gun I think I'd have less respect for it. Bow hunting is pretty cool though. I'm not a hunter at all, but I'm not really against it either. I'm sure lots of people hunt bear. Kinda sucks if people are crying out just because famous people are doing it.

I hunt all four legged game with a bow, I gave up using a gun years ago.

John Beckwith (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005562/):Why can't we hunt something cool like a hawk or an eagle, something with some talons?
Jeremy Grey (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000681/): That'd be awesome. We could get something like big game. Even like a gorilla or a rhinoceros or a ****ing human being! That'll get you jacked up.
John Beckwith (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005562/): That's a little heavy.
Jeremy Grey (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000681/): I mean like, hunt a human being right now, "Most Dangerous Game". Like a worthy adversary. Not a human being that's armed, but a clever, a clever, human being who knows the jungle. Or the woods

Bear jerky is great too.

Bear jerky is incredibley dangerous to eat. Any wild, non commercial jerky is dangerous for that matter. But especially bear. You could easily get Trichinellosis (trichinella). Worms that grow in your muscle. There is no cure. You just suffer and die.

As a vegetarian, I am of course against eating all animals. But if you're gonna hunt a wild animal and then not cook it at a temperature adequate to kill things? Don't be surprised if it isn't good for you. If you're gonna hunt and eat animals, at least be smart about it. Get your jerky in the store.

So, should I stop eating deer because they carry anthrax?

Properly prepared jerky is dried at approximately 250 degrees.

Trichinella is almost non-existant in humans now because we started monitoring what went into our livestock. We can't do that with wild animals.

The process of making jerky makes it so much more dangerous to eat wild animals. Trichinella larvae are in the muscles. You've got to cook to over 170 degrees all the way through. It's easy not to do that when you're making jerky. That's what makes it so dangerous.

It's pretty simple to set the thermostat on your drier to 250 degrees and let it do its job.
