Visiting the Yellowstone Region this summer? Yellowstone country is bear country. If you plan to hike, camp, hunt, or bike in or near the backcountry, don’t forget your bear spray. Bear spray can help you and wildlife stay safe.
Here are some retailers in the Yellowstone area who rent bear spray. Please check back as more retailers join!
Thank you to the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative for funding this project.
