Donate the meat to an orphanage.
I know several who have in CO.
Consult the local game warden for tips.
I think I'd feel the same way. As bear is considered a "meat animal," you may be legally as well as morally obligated to have plans for the meat.
I never planned to eat a coyote or bobcat after shooting it, but a bear is kinda different.
That said, I've never eaten bear. Perhaps someone has suggestions for ways of removing the tallow from the meat? I guess I'd cut it into strips and fry it on the griddle like bacon, then use it for soups.
