Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Grizzly Bear Managers have released their annual spring report for all of the different regions in the state and urge people to be aware that bears are already stirring.
“HELENA- Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks bear managers meet every year in mid-March to prepare for the state’s bears to emerge from hibernation. About the same time, male grizzly bears are already stirring and that is why April 1st is the target date FWP bear managers recommend for bringing in winter bird feeders and seed, cleaning yards and collecting and disposing of bear attractants that have accumulated over winter.” By Diane Tipton, MT FWP Statewide Information Officer.
