Hi,
 
Thank you for your question! 
 
The "Red Bear" signs are to increase visitor awareness of vehicle-animal collisions and increase awareness of wildlife along roadsides. 
 
 
Enjoy your adventure!

Hi,

Thank you for reaching out to us! To answer your question, rifles can be carried in the forest if you have a hunting permit. However, they must be in their carrying case and unloaded while doing so.

For more rules and regulations before your adventure please visit http://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/texas/recreation/hunting.

Hello,

It is always best to call the park office and speak with an employee to be sure. The phone number for Yellowstone National Park is 307-334-7387 and Glacier National Park is 406-888-7800. For more information you can visit the National Park Service website: http://www.nps.gov/index.htm

Hope that helps! Thanks.

Trail Cam Captures Bears Dancing in Forest

A trail cam set up in an Alberta forest shows just how much goes on in the wilderness when humans aren't around. The cam captured bears, deer and even a mountain lion all passing by the same tree. Our favorite clip comes about halfway through the video, when there are four different grizzlies at the tree, all taking turns doing a Baloo-style back rub.

We will be coming to Denali in June 2014. I know that there are 3 bus tours, the shortest being the "Natural History Tour". Are you more likely to see wildlife on one of the other tours, or just as likely to see wildlife on the "Natural History Tour"?

Hi,

All Denali tours are handled by the concessioner Doyon/ARAMARK Joint Venture. I suggest you call and ask a local tour guide..they will have the most accurate information. You can call 1-800-622-7275 (or 907 272-7275 for international or local Anchorage callers); or visit their website at: http://www.nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/bus-tours.htm

 
Thanks!
