The part that's interesting to me is that if there's a mama with a cub, that means there's a papa around somewhere too! Its amazing to me how those animals find each other out there, when we have thousands of sets of eyes in the wilderness every year and can't seem to find them.

Honestly there's more grizz than you probably guess.  I know of several in the methow, but we don't often beat down the biologists door.   This one is a surprise for me though.  I'm curious if displaced by the fire in the pasayten, or expansion out of the starvation country.  Probably the latter.   Probably had to do with that burn.

Spotted over the weekend Near Conconully...

Just my  :twocents: , but there's still green grass to be found in the mountains right now.  Especially on north slopes, along creek drainages and at elevation.  We just rode atvs in the 100 degree heat around Wallace, ID last weekend and found lots of green pockets with green grass, ferns, cedars, etc.  No matter when this photo was taken, its the animal content of the photo that makes it cool, not the time of year it was taken. Thanks for sharing!!  :tup:

I agree. I spent some time in the mountains last weekend. Lots of green still present.

This was 3 weeks ago on the border of the Yakama reservation at 6000-ish feet in a wide open to the sky area....

Their sense of smell is far greater then one can imagine, when animal is in heat the males will find them. :chuckle:

I laughed when I saw a bottle of moose in heat for sale at the store.  Anyone who has spent time with moose know why I was laughing.   I wonder if there is a market for Grizz in heat?

That part of Okanogan hasn't had rain in over 65 days so I have a hard time believing the timing of this photo as well as the location.

It's barely rained twice here in ~3 months. Still green.

If it wasn't for the fact that I am swamped at work right now and helping with the veteran hunt I would put $1000 down on the table and take you to the exact location. But if you don't believe me go out to those gps co ordinates and do a 360 degree video and post up here.

Some people just like to argue for the sake of it, if he doesn't want to believe it that's his problem.

It's still an awesome photos of a Wa grizz and her cub. :tup:

If I would have taken that photo it would be enlarged and on my wall.  :kneel:

I also really appreciate you sharing this really cool pic.

Don't let a couple people who weren't there ruin it for you.

Besides, I'm quite confident that you'd win the $1K.

Thanks again for sharing.
