Bear Education Site Unveiled

Hunters and outdoor enthusiasts have an additional tool for getting ready before they head to the woods in Idaho.  As an addition to their newly redesigned website completed in August, Idaho Fish & Game Regional Conservation Educator Gregg Losinski says the state agency has added an interactive bear identification training section to help educate about the differences between the two types of bruins that call Idaho home.  The educational site, complete with photos and videos, includes a self-test which you can be taken on a home computer.  Losinski says while it is not currently required to take the test to hunt, it is training that anyone heading out into the outdoors should take advantage of.  Losinski points to a similar program in Montana that would-be bear hunters must pass before they are permitted to buy a bear hunting license.  Losinski says learning to identify whether a bear is a grizzly or a black bear is important because how one deals with a bear encounter is very different between the two species.
