Grizzly Bear Expert
Casey is a professional who has raised Brutus since birth. Even so, Casey says he’s still “100% grizzly.” Respect wildlife and play it safe: stay at least 100 yards from bears at all times.
“The United States has many special places but Montana I feel is wilder than any place in the lower 48 states. There are intact ecosystems. there are places that have been what they are for thousands of years. You can't deny that when you're here, you feel it. ”— Casey Anderson
A native Montanan, Casey was introduced to the natural world at an early age and continues to thrive there. He's built his livelihood around communicating that knowledge so that others might understand and appreciate it too. Whether he's hanging with his buddy Brutus (a 900-pound grizzly) at the Montana Grizzly Encounter Center or trekking around with a camera crew for National Geographic he finds himself most at home in the untamed wilderness.

Yellowstone National Park is but a short day trip from Casey's home near Livingston and two distinct routes present themselves depending on the season. Follow U.S. 89 south through the Yellowstone River Valley at any time of the year or, during the summer months, travel up and over the mountains along the scenic Beartooth Highway. Either way, you're in for a treat.
