The closest breeder I know from you is in San Diego >>> California Karelians: Bear Dogs in action

) is at the top.
My scout troop and I backpacked (84 miles in 10 days) the bear country of the Bob Marshall Wilderness a few years ago. We worked very closely with Ranger District and they provided us with a checklist but I can't seem to find it. Anyways, a couple of things stands out for me ...
- Pay special attention to where you pick up your tent. Look for signs; tracks, scats, kills, etc ...
- Absolutely no food inside your tent, including candy, tooth paste, etc ... Don't cook/prep food, or eat near your tent. Clean up before bed; change clothes (no food scent). Hang your food. If they want your food so bad, let them have it.
- Insure you have proper bear defense in place and readily deployable when the need arises.
