Bear Patrol in the BWCA

Have you seen any bears in the Boundary Waters this year? If so then let the USFS know. And remember, don’t feed the bears.

We received a report today regarding a group encounter with a bear on the portage between Duncan and Rose.

The bear was not concerned with human presence and was digging through and damaging packs even during attempts to scare it away.

Please continue to report all bear encounters/incidents.   

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend.
