How do you store a bear roast after cooking it in a crockpot until you're ready to eat it?
It was done at 8:30am and I plan to eat it around 6:00pm. It was cooked in beef broth.

If your crock has a warm that you can trust is above 140 F but not so hot to cook it down then you can leave it in the crock. Otherwise you need to get it under 40 F.
A better option would have been to start it at a time so that it finished at 6 PM.
Why not just start it 8:30 AM?
If you are going to cool then remove from the crock pot as that is a lot of heat to put in a refrigerator.
