What You Learned (cont.)
When you are hunting in Wyoming, you should remember that you are hunting in bear country, and in some instances, grizzly bear country. You must use characteristics other than color or size to identify bears and should learn to recognize their tracks and scat.
If an aggressive bear is charging you, do NOT run away. Instead, consider other options, including using bear pepper spray, climbing a tree, playing dead, or shooting a firearm.
To keep bears away from a campsite, keep the campsite clean, put all food and garbage in bear-resistant containers, do not sleep near your cooking area, and do not use perfume or deodorant.
After you kill game in bear country, get it out of the area as soon as possible. If you must leave a carcass, hang it up out of the bear’s reach and where you can see it.
