What Are Bears Doing This Time Of Year?

I have on some level been around bears for over 30 years and this time of year many of them are vacating their den…”where are they going”, you say?

I would say many bears are going downhill to places like Yankee Jim Canyon or the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park to feed on carrion, which is a dead animal with decaying meat on it.

If for some reason you are out in bear country (mostly lowlands…at least relatively) this time of year get out of an area where you see a lot of bear prints in the mud or snow and bring bear spray because if you are attacked by a bear that is by far your best remedy to protect yourself from a bear attack.
