Caution: Don't go exploring beyond the town limits on your own. When you see a polar-bear warning sign like this one, turn back unless you're carrying a rifle, know how to use it, and are familiar with the local laws concerning shooting or harassing wildlife. (See next page.) You'll also need to register with the governor's office if you're headed into the wilderness.
