Grizzly Still Roaming GTNP

January 4, 2012 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
399 winter

A female grizzly bear, believed to possibly be 399 along with two cubs was reported last week still out and about.  Grand Teton National Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says a reliable spotter reported seeing the bear with her two cubs crossing Ditch Creek from East to West last Wednesday.  While bears typically hibernate beginning in early December, Skaggs says they have been known not to as long as there is food available.  This being a mild year, Skaggs says, that is apparently the case.  Furthermore, Skaggs says, 399 has a habit of “pushing the limits” on what is expected.  Skaggs says the important thing is that residents in the area be aware of the continued bear activity, and be careful not to have bird feeders, pet food or trash where it might be available to the roving bears.

  • 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 […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
