It's that time of year again when the grass greens up, the buds on the Aspen trees start to swell, and the grizzly bears become active after a long winter's rest.  Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks bear biologist recently flew the rocky mountain front front and found that there many active bears. I encourage anyone who's going out hiking, recreating or taking a stroll to be aware of the potential for a grizzly bear encounter. The best way to protect yourself is to make some noise - so a bear know's your around - and if you become the target of aggression, bear spray is the best, final defense.  Learn to use it, and pack it!
