Have you ever dressed any game? Where are you planning on hunting. There is a big difference in bear and moose, for bear I would recommend seeing a taxidermist,most will be happy to tell you how to skin and other wise handle your trophy,if your in a warm area,you need to be sure you can cool the meat bear seems to spoil quickly and moose is never easy to cool the thighs and shoulders are large pieces of meat and hold heat well, rapid cooling leads to better quality meat, and both are to good to waste and deserve better than to end up in the garbage.Divide the meat into the smallest pieces you can legally and reasonably,places them in a cotton game bag and hang in the shade or other cool area with good air movement.
