Hunters using the state wildlife management areas along the Rocky Mountain Front need to remember to store food properly to avoid attracting bears into camp.

At the Sun River, Blackleaf and Ear Mountain WMA’s, human, pet and livestock food and garbage have to be stored in a bear resistant manner when the camp is unattended and when the camp is not in use during nighttime hours.

An alternative would be to have an adult in camp and awake.

Also, fish, wildlife and bird carcasses within one-half mile of a camp or sleeping area have to be stored in a bear resistant manner during nighttime hours.

Food storage orders are posted at all Fish, Wildlife and Parks WMA’s along the Front. They are also available at FWP’s Region 4 headquarters in Great Falls, 454-5840
