I've hiked in the Park over 35 yrs or more and never felt the need for bear spray even though I've had a couple of trail run-ins where the bear just took off . Like Narco said, out West in Glacier or YNP is literally an entirely different animal. One thing that we carried the last few years that I backpacked and carry now when fishing in the Park are a set of walkie talkies. They really come in handy in keeping up with one another as to where we are , what is hitting, and are a safety aid as well.
