• Never approach or entice wildlife, no matter how gentle they may seem. While bears can pose a real and immediate threat, most wildlife encounters are with non-aggressive animals such as moose, raccoons or deer.
• Don’t forget necessities such as water and a flashlight, as well as a first aid kit that would include any medication you may need.
• If a thunderstorm is approaching while you are in the wilderness, be sure to avoid tall, solitary objects, such as trees or an open shelter, and head to low ground. Remove anything from your body that could conduct electricity. If you're traveling in a group, don't huddle together.
