Ia the Color scheme for human traffic?
It's a modeling effort showing the routes most likely to be used by griz coming north out of the GYE. It was made a few years ago and has proven to be pretty predictive. It doesn't even take into consideration the bears from the Crown of the Continent, of which there are hundreds.

Honestly it was just a quick map to share. @Schaaf 's is probably the most accurate I have seen.

Question-Is the grizzly boundary the east, west or dead center of the red line? Due to the width of the red line it covers a bazillon acres and if I hunt an area covered by the red line I need to know if I am safe or not.

I am use to the accuracy of the wllm1313 type of spreadsheets and graphs.

It's one big Bear held in by high voltage fence. Just hunt east of the fence....

Just to be safe, I'm gonna hunt ND this year...

I'd move that line to the Snowies and everything west. Grizzly was confirmed in the Snowies this past fall, fyi.

If you really think there is not a possibility of grizzly bears in all of Montana you are sorely mistaken. Use your noggin and just be aware. Sounds like OP wont be in Tom Minor Basin.

"Where to I need to bring by Grizzly A game, outlines of GYE (Yellowstone) and NCDE (Flathead).

Connectivity heat map... white is likely blue is unlikely. Outside of the GYE and NCDE the white corridors are probably a tier 2 bear occurrence area.

Outside of those areas, you have a very very low chance of seeing a bear... like if you claimed to see one I would be decently skeptical.

Looking at those likely corridors, I wonder why they haven't made it into the Salmon-Challis area.
