Doug, Thanks. Yes, a good read. I learned a number of things including the definition of "baculum" a few of which I tossed away last May. I'm in the "you can't eat antlers" school of thought and I'd include penile bones in that as well, irregardless of how many Alaskans have oosiks hanging on their wall.
Up here, seismic and other field crews working anytime, including winter, have a staff member (with a 12-gauge loaded with rifled slugs) being "bear watch" at all times. Setting off dynamite can and has woken up ("unhibernated"?) bears and they can be kind of grumpy when woken.
