on first read. Really is serious, though. We need to know what to do to avoid grizzly consequences...

Having lived in Bear country most of my adult life, Colorado and Montana I really 2nd the BELL be worn on clothes suggestion! Often times the biggest issue is that the bear is not aware we are there. It frightens them and the react in their defense. Make ton's of noise, sing, whistle, hummmm, talk, when hiking/walking down paths. People don't realize how many times they actually have scared off a bear just by the noise they make, the bear is long gone before they even know it.


Of course there are bear that have become accustom to human noise and they don't care that you have a 4 man band hiking with you, all they care about is that sandwich in your backpack . Think before you have issues! .

I just read where the bears are going to have a hard time finding food going into winter in Montana which means them coming out this spring could be bad also. My son worked with a kid at the Philmont Scout Ranch a few years back who's nick name was "Lucky". "Lucky" got dragged out of his tent by his head (pictures to prove it) while camping with his troop on the ranch by a bear that came out of hibernation sick and underfed. The attraction for the bear was a bag of someone's upchuck left by the sump sink. We just returned from the Philmont Scout Ranch where we picked up my son's friend who worked with him there. He told us due to a Scout Troop baiting their tent poles with peanut butter, their district is now banned from the Scout Ranch for a number of years. What a way to ruin another Scout's chance at a great experience.

Joe I'm a little slow today and had to read the sign twice before I got it. It's a little tongue in cheek but the basic advice is good. Lee

Lee I thought the advice was very good also and whenever i hike thru the woods i always whistle or clap my hands to make noise so as to not surprise an animal........ I have to admit I laughed for quite a while after reading that sign
