Wyoming Game and Fish: Hunters Need Bear Spray

jwal4503, flikr.com

CODY, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is urging hunters and others who go into the back country to be cautious in grizzly country and carry bear spray.

Tara Teaschner with the game department in Cody says the department anticipates more people will encounter bears as they become more active and hunters take to the field.

Teaschner says hunter’s techniques such as moving quietly and being active at dawn and dusk make them more likely to encounter bears. She says hunters and others in bear country should be prepared for a confrontation.

The game department recommends that hunters carry bear spray and know how and when to use it. Hunters also should hunt with a partner and stay in sight of each other.
