Bears are Getting Ready for Hibernation Right Now! Be Ready!!
What Should You do if You Surprise a Bear? What Should You do if You Are in a Physical Confrontation with a Bear?
Ok, so maybe the folks and the bears pictured above are a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the idea, right? This week on the Montana Outdoor Podcast your host Downrigger Dale talks with Danielle Oyler, Wildlife Stewardship Outreach Specialist from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. One of Danielle’s many specialties is teaching the public all about living with wildlife, and particularly with bears. She knows a TON about bears and how they behave. Grizzly Bear populations have grown A LOT across Montana. In fact, Grizzly Bears can now be found from across Western Montana to as far east as Billings. Click here now to listen and find out more!
It is perfect timing having Danielle on the Montana Outdoor Podcast as Governor Gianforte recently announced that September is Bear Aware Month in Montana. To Celebrate the FWP is holding events across Montana. Be sure and attend an event near you and bring the whole family.
