Grizzly bears, this time of year are typically preparing for winter hibernation. Bird and bow hunters should be alert and prepared for encounters while out in the field.
“Each year we urge hunters to avoid riparian areas with dense cover because that’s where grizzly and black bears seek berries and other food,” said Ron Aasheim, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman. “Just like many hunters, bears like the cover. Hunters need to expect to see and possibly encounter bears, so be smart, be alert and hunt the edges. Don’t get into the dense cover.”
Aasheim recommends that hunters, especially archers and many upland bird hunters, carry bear spray.
“Statistically, bear spray is the most effective tool for personal protection in bear country,” Aasheim said.
