Bears in Yellowstone? Bear spray needed?

Jump to last reply

We (2 adults) will be in Yellowstone in late August, early September for 8-9 days. We will generally drive around, but we also intend to do some easy hiking. I read that anywhere off the road in Yellowstone you are actually in a remote area in bear country.

How concerned should we be about a bear encounter? Should we get bear spray? I read about some bear spray rental services, is there any in Billings? I suppose bears are still active at that time of the year. Actually, I hope they are, since I would love pictures – from a distance, of course :)
I am really not panicking, just want to be prepared, as I really don’t know what to expect. Thanks
