This is my first post here. I really enjoy this forum. I have been reading and learning alot about Alaska in the last few weeks.
I am headed to the interior of Katmai for an extended bout. I have read the bears along the coast are pretty used to seeing people, but what about the interior bears? I will be doing alot of walking around alone heading to Rainbow Trout holes. Is the area primarily open, or heavily wooded and bushy?
I have been told I can't carry bear spray on a plane, and plane is the only way there, so I am going to bring a 454 Alaskan.
I am not paranoid about the bears, but I do want to be prepared.
Thanks in advance,
