Bears are captured using modified Aldrich foot snares and culvert traps

While chemically immobilized biological data in the form of morphometric measurements and tissue samples are collected.

Bears are fitted with global positioning system (GPS) collars designed to track their movements and gather additional data.

Bears are monitored via aerial telemetry throughout the year and to locate winter den sites.

Den checks are performed in late winter to download data, replace collars, and assess reproduction of female bears.
