Teams Study Local Grizzly Bears

Biologists with the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team have begun conducting annual scientific grizzly bear research operations in the Greater Yellowstone area to monitor the population and activities of grizzly bears within the ecosystem.  Study Team Spokesman Chuck Schwartz says researchers have set up baited traps in various locations around Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and the six adjacent forests, as the radio collaring and study continues through July 7th. Schwartz explains the study is part of the long-term recovery program for grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone area. Schwartz says none of the trap sites are located near any established hiking trails or backcountry campsites.  However, should any back country users happen upon a study area which will be clearly posted, they asked to stay out of the area.

    Each year, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department sends out a reminder of the right way to release fish when you turn them back into the water. Al Langston of the Game and Fish recently sent out that reminder, so I thought I’d pass it along to you. When the water gets warm this time […]
  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]
