Oh-boy… So I take it that you have a fence then? If so, what kind? Do you have any other tips backpacking into grizzly country besides the typical don’t cook where you sleep, don’t be alone, etc… Did you see any wolves?

Re: Bear fence?

Of course we have a good # of bears.Because they shut the season down in 1990,from a judge inDC.I had a tag the bears havent been hunted since then.They have no preditor .You have to highline food,or they ticket you.You are also suppose to have no carcass near a trail,sooooo its not real easy to move a carcass if you where lucky enough to get one on trail.

Interesting, Kinda like ringing the dinner bell hopefully the high pitch would run whatever off. I was pictureing myself trying to get out of a sleeping bag at 2 in the morning when that thing went off.

Re: Bear fence?

Since the grizzly hunt here in Alberta has been cancelled we are starting to see more bears as well. In the last six sheep hunting seasons I have seen as few as 3 bears and as many as 8 in one season. I have considered using a bear fence during the day while I'm away from camp but not at night. I believe that more deer and elk would get caught up in it than bears. Keep a clean camp, loaded rifle and sleep light and all will be well. IMHO.
