    My husband is a hunter, are there any animals that they can't eat? I know, deer, moose, elk is OK what about Bear?

    As far as I'm concerned, Bear would be good ! They would eat it in the wild.....

    I don't think it would harm them.

    Is bear meat kind of fatty?

    I think it is fatty but maybe I could mix it with another type of meat that is lean. Next question, does anyone know what kind of grinder you would need to grind the bones etc?

    I think that the grinders that do bones well (and are well built to last) are extremely expensive (like thousands of dollars), and are professional grade. You may find something cheaper that may do chicken bones in a limited quantity though.

    Not that I know anything about bear meat, but I would cut it with something leaner because of the fat. But wow, what an opportunity for a diffferent protein source!

    I agree with the above. Grinders that will grind bones are lots of money. I'm trying to find a little grinder just to grind tripe and even those are a good chunk of change. If you really want it ground you can ask a local butcher to do it for you and just pay by the load or something.

    This might be a good read for you, though:

    Another thought on heavy duty grinders is to look for used ones. The one I use to butcher deer (it can not take bones) was purchased used from a restaurant.

    Thanks I would love to feed them whole bones but unfortunately because of Coopers Megaesophagus he has to eat standing up and must stay in that position for 15 - 30 minutes after eating. The food will not go down his esophogus if his head is down or if he is laying down. Although I am happy that I tried raw, it is the only food he hasn't regurgitated in two 1/2 years!!
