Bear Experts Come To Jackson Hole

grizzly bears

The Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee is holding its spring meeting in Teton Village Wednesday and Thursday this week.  The Yellowstone ecosystem grizzly bear recovery area includes all of Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, as well as portions of northwest Wyoming, eastern Idaho, and southwest Montana.  According to Subcommittee Spokesman Gregg Losinski, the spring meeting has a full agenda with discussion of the methods for the estimation of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem grizzly bear population topping the agenda.  Losinski says new technology enables more accurate counting and will be considered for use.  Losinski says the committee will also discuss additional efforts to prevent bear/human conflicts. Typically, Losinski says bears are relocated within the ecosystem when they get into trouble.  However, he says the ecosystem is not so large that they won’t get into the same trouble elsewhere or end up back where they were in the first place. He says that is where public education can play a major role in heading off conflicts in the first place. The spring meeting takes place at Hotel Terra in Teton Village beginning at 1:00 pm Wednesday and is open to the public.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
