Hi, sfabre194. Yes, you should definitely have a beer can with you. Bears love beer as much as humans. Not sure about the “beat can” in your subject title… Sorry, just having a little fun with you! Vivian Creek and the Forest Falls area seem to have most of the bear problems. I can’t recall if I’ve ever carried a bear can in the SGWA going back about 30 years. I’ve also never personally seen a bear there, but I know they’re around.
