When you kill a game animal in bear country, field dress the animal, quarter it if needed, and remove the carcass from the area as soon as possible.

  • Separate the entrails “gut pile” from the carcass as soon as they are removed.
  • Never leave a carcass or gut pile on or near a trail.
  • Hang the carcass out of the reach of a bear (at least 10 feet up) if you must leave it.
  • Always leave the carcass where you can see it from a distance and use special care when returning to it.
