Depending on where you are in Canada, even a moose needs to be brought out whole! Quite and undertaking ( I am sure there are exceptions to this in many of the western provinces) whole that is, after being gutted.
Those areas that dont require it coming out whole, all useable meat must come out. Bears field dress pretty much just like a deer. In principle except for the size, moose also- you will need block and tackle and axes though! I agree with everyone else: start with deer, learn the basics. A moose can spoil in a day in warm weather- a horrible shame to be avoided. You are likely to encounter a bear while deer hunting as a bonus. Bear is fine eating also, if treated properly. Gut as soon as possible, cool, and keep clean. Treat it like real meat, not a cast off as many do.
