Knowing bear safety is an important part of canoe camping when you’re in bear territory. Here are some tips to keep in mind...As our friends at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources say: “The best way to avoid bear problems is to not attract them in the first place.”
When you head into remote wilderness areas for a canoe trip like Minnesota’s Boundary Waters or Canada’s Quetico, you need paddles you can depend on.
You’ll likely have a paddle in your hands the entire time you’re on the water, so picking the right one is critical. A paddle that fits you and your paddling style can make the difference between a fun, rewarding experience or sore hands and shoulders.
