As we head deeper into fall, bears are reaching the peak of hyperphagia, a sort of “feeding frenzy” to pack on the pounds before denning for the winter. For up to 20 hours per day, they’ll be following their noses for easy, calorie-packed meals. If properties aren’t properly bearproofed, bears will head straight to the trash cans, bird feeders, and other attractants found in populated areas, increasing the risk of human-bear conflict.
