You just never know where/when you may encounter a bear while camping in your AS...these are from Glacier and Banff couple years back...the small cub in the tree "Booboo" happened when I whistled at her mom on the bank there...the silvertip grizzly was just eating clover by side of the road...first thought it was a group of rocks till he lifted his head. In Glacier, Yellowstone, Tetons, there are encounters every year...can't predict behavior, so carry spray and be careful...oh, and also have a camera with you.

I always carry a small .25 cal in my pocket. Most experts say a .25 isn't effective on bears, but when we encountered a grizzly while hiking, I simply put one round into my hiking partner's knee, and I was able to walk away at a brisk pace!
