Grizzly Moved To JDR Parkway

bear trap

The Caribou-Targhee National Forest adjacent the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway has another new resident.  The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped an adult male grizzly bear near Cody Friday and relocated it in the Cascade Creek drainage approximately 10 miles west of Flagg Ranch and approximately 10 miles east of the Idaho-Wyoming state line.  Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says the bear was captured because it was frequenting a ranch east of the Absaroka Front north of Cody,in what would not be considered typical grizzly bear habitat.  Gocke says the bear was moved to preempt any conflicts with people, property, or livestock. As usual, the release site is located within currently occupied grizzly bear habitat and grizzly bears are present throughout the area.

  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
