"Be careful in western Montana..." Montana Warnings Or Dangers Tip by pipsqueak

Montana Warnings and Dangers: 27 reviews and 15 photos


Be careful in western Montana if you are backpacking or camping in the wild backcounty. Encountering a grizzly bear in the wild is pretty rare, but I don't think the Forest Service puts these signs up just for the fun of it. Bears have a great sense of smell, so make sure you keep food and other things that may smell good to a bear a long way from your tent.
