I'm into grizzly almost every fall Double.  Ive had encounters since back in the 80s.  I've almost had my you know what handed to me.   I think it's awesome you posted that pic.  I haven't seen any right there in that hood.  I've seen them working near starvation, so it's not a wild step.    You have nothing to prove.  I've had arguements like this since middle school.   Someone thought I hadn't seen a blacktail in the valley.    Then it was  a moose, then it was a wolf, then a Lynx. Even had a bighorn walk across my Dads horse pasture.    This year it was a Fisher.  Point is, wild animals get around.  Spend some time in big country and you will see all sorts of stuff.  Then everyone wants you to get on the horn to the WDFW.  Why?  Most of the time they won't believe you and I can't say I blame them.  They have yahooooo after yahooooo that don't know ....... from ...........  reporting.   If they do research it, the next thing you know you have the area shutdown.   I'll never forget sitting in my dads living room watching a pack of wolves on the hill. The biologist called.  (Coincidence) He had never even seen one before.  Lol. Imagine his surprise, "watching 5 or six of them on the hill right now".   How can you study an animal you have never seen..... The next day there were about seven guys cross country skiing on the hill.   I'm sure it's easy to sneak up on a wolf with seven guys.   They chaulked it up to a coyote.  Those pics ended up in a magazine article.    Rant almost over.   Cool photo. 

Don't drink the koolaide people.  Because they say they aren't here. Roflmao! Or that they want to introduce them.  They are here where it will support them.  Now with the big fires, it may support more of them.  We shall see.

Ok.. I bit.   :)  I was up in the area last weekend so I took a little detour Sunday evening and drove up to the coordinates.  (yikes that road sucks! Low clearance vehicles need not apply!)

Currently the grass and weeds everywhere I went before and after the coordinates is leaps and bounds taller than in this picture.  I was surprised on how much was still green, but nowhere in the area was the grass this short.  No buttercups ( or whatever the yellow flowers are) were visible any where.

Very cool. I like bears, including grizzlies.

Cool to watch. Cool to hunt. Shot an arctic grizzly earlier this year, in Alaska.

The grizz has always been around, I suspect. Not in big numbers here, not for a long time, but they've been around.

I've put the Biologist in touch with the original photographer. I put an estimate area guessed on what was relayed to me. They are meeting him to point it out.

I thought we were not doing this any more? This whole grass is too green tree is too tall where is your proof garbage.  This thread is really a test of our new huntwa and it's still sketchy if you ask me.

I am however happy you shared the pics pretty cool to see WA griz period.

I spent all day in okanagan county yesterday up high, low, and mid elevation saw plenty of green grass.  ;)

Now deer not so much, but hey saw lots of really cool wolf tracks. >:( :o

We've removed a good deal of negative posts and I asked the OP if he would like me to remove more posts, we are definitely on it!  :tup:
