From Montana FWP: For you shedicated folk heading out for a foot race this Sunday please remember to be bear aware.
Most of Montana’s 76 WMA’s open at noon on May 15th. Bears, elk and shed hunters will be sharing the same space.
Follow these steps:
– Carry & know how to use bear spray.
– Travel in groups
– Avoid carcass sites
– Watch for signs of bears, scat, diggings, torn-up logs
– Make noise, especially near streams or in thick forest where hearing and visibility is impaired. This can be the key to avoiding encounters. Most bears will avoid humans when they know humans are present.
