It's tourist season in Montana, which means folks from all over the world will come and partake in all that Montana has to offer, of course, one of the biggest draws is Yellowstone National Park.

Yellowstone National Park is the oldest National Park in the United States and just celebrated their 150th Anniversary last year. With over 2 million acres and the state covering parts of 3 different states, Yellowstone is in a league of its own.

With man-made attractions like The Old Faithful Lodge as well as the Roosevelt Arch, there is a ton of history associated with Yellowstone National Park.

Of course, the biggest draws to the park are the abundance of wildlife, and the geothermal elements that make the National Park so unique. Having said that, it also makes the Park dangerous for those that aren't careful, or venture to places that they shouldn't.

So as a Public Service Announcement to those visiting the park, Fly Fishing guide Hank Patterson decided to make a video and post it on Instagram with some extremely helpful advice for all of the first timers, or those that need a little refresher course.

While obviously meant to get a laugh, the video brings up some excellent points. You would think that most folks would realize that it isn't a good idea to approach wild animals 3 to 10 times their size, but it seems like every year we have a multitude of "Dumb Dumb" stories coming out of the Park.
