Big Sky Camp Paw

Big Sky Camp Paw (formerly Big Sky Paw Camp, Big Sky Camp Con, Big Sky Fur Meet[1] and the Bozeman Furry Spring Camping Trip[2]) is a furry camping convention held in Montana, USA.

Camp Paw claims to be "the only furry camping con to allow firearms", under strict restrictions.[3] In 2017, attendees were prompted to bring their firearms if they wished;[4] this suggestion had been removed by 2018,[5] and between 2017 and 2019 the code of conduct featured an additional requirement that "no one is to be drinking/intoxicated while carrying a weapon."[3]
