UDAP Bear Fence


Make sure you have a bear safe storage plan for your food.  Going into bear country comes with the risk of putting yourself and others in danger if you don’t have a food plan.  If you have a large group we recommend renting the bear fence to store all of your food.

Store lots of food safely and within Smith River Compliance. The UDAP Bear Shock electric fence is a great way of storing your food while in bear country. This IGBC and Forest Service approved electric fence surrounds your food cache, preventing a bear from eating your pic-a-nic basket. This is an excellent solution for group trips (such as Smith River Floats), with multiple parties and large amounts of food.




UDAP, based out of Butte, MT, is our provider of rental bear spray, food storage containers, and IGBC compliant rental bear fences.
