Does Arkansas Have Bears?

Arkansas is home to black bears and we have thousands of them. They have been making a comeback since the 1960s.

You probably know Arkansas as “The Natural State.” However, before that, we were known as “The Bear State.”

Black bears were previously very abundant in Arkansas. However, due to over-harvesting and habitats being cut down for farmland, by the 1930s, Arkansas was home to less than 50 black bears.

Thankfully, black bears are making a comeback in Arkansas.

“Recovery of black bears in Arkansas represents one of the most successful re-introductions of a large carnivore ever achieved. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission successfully reintroduced 254 black bears from Minnesota and Manitoba, Canada, into the Ouachita and Ozark Mountains of Arkansas between 1958 and 1968. With the help of regulated hunting and habitat improvements in the Interior Highlands region of Arkansas , black bear populations have increased.”source

It is currently estimated that there are over 3,000 black bears in our forests. (source)

Do I need bear spray in Arkansas?

Carrying bear spray while hiking or camping in our National Forests is never a bad thing. However, you don’t need any sort of “fancy bear spray.” A simple can of pepper spray will do the trick if a black bear approaches you and won’t go away.

Another alternative to pepper spray is just acting aggressive and yelling. Many people have experienced that black bears will run away when someone yells at them.

Although bears are considered one of many dangerous animals in Arkansas, black bears tend to be less aggressive than the well-known grizzly bear. However, while hiking in Arkansas or enjoying some of the best camping in Arkansas, you should always take precautions and stay away from bears.

Black bears are not territorial toward people like some dogs are. Black bears are mostly afraid they will be attacked. If a person doesn’t want a black bear to come closer, act aggressively. Black bears that come into campgrounds are looking for food, not people, and can easily be chased away in most cases.
