If you kill an animal at dusk, be prepared to cut up carcass in the dark by carrying strong headlamps. Be extra vigilant and watch for bears.
If you must leave your animal, return to the site carefully. Leave it in an area that is easily observable from a distance.
If possible, separate carcass and gut pile by at least 100 yards as soon as possible.
Make noise when approaching streams or rivers where visibility is poor and/or rushing water makes it difficult for bears to hear you approaching.
Carry bear spray on you, especially if you are wading or shore fishing.
When possible, clean fish at a designated fish-cleaning station, or at home.
Fish are attractants, store them properly. Don’t leave fish entrails on shorelines of lakes and streams; sink them in deep water. Failing to dispose of entrails increases the danger to yourself and others using the area after you.
