October 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Human-bear conflicts increase in autumn as bears gorge in preparation for hibernation, and people take to the woods for archery and rifle hunting seasons. Elk and deer rifle season opener is on October 23rd, and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is hosting this virtual bear safety presentation to prepare you for hunting in bear country. We will cover bear safety, biology, conflict prevention, responding to bear encounters, handling carcasses in bear country, and how to use bear spray. This event is free and open to the public in any state or province.
