Right after harvesting a bear, we cut off the baculum and scrape the flesh off with a sharp knife. Just hold the blade at a 90 degree angle and start at one end and work your way down. It takes a couple minutes. You can degrease and whiten or leave it as is. It isn't really greasey and will be pretty white after drying.
Here's a gag we do at the bar during bear season. Drill a small hole in both ends of the baculum and attach it to a lanyard. Make sure its visible. Wait for a women to walk up and comment as to what that is around your neck. You simply say its a bear whistle, it keeps bears away. They will ask to try it. After they try blowing and nothing comes out, that's when you ask them if they ever gave a bear a bl**job, when they say no, you say, you have now. Most laugh, some slap and others want to buy em
