Grizzly Study Planned

July 11, 2011 Greater Yellowstone, Teton Valley No Comments

As part of ongoing efforts required under the Endangered Species Act  to monitor the distribution of grizzly bears in the Yellowstone Ecosystem, the Idaho Department of Fish & Game will begin pre-baiting and scientific trapping operations in the Upper Snake Region next week.  The work is to concentrate on the portion of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest within Idaho that is south of Yellowstone National Park down to Badger Creek.  Trapping efforts will begin on July 18th and run until August 25th. Trapping operations may include a variety of activities, but all areas where work is being conducted will have major access points marked with bright orange warning signs.  It is critical that all members of the public heed these signs.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
