First Grizzly of the Season

We like to put out a small food block, a salt lick, and a water trough for the deer and elk to enjoy. In the mornings and evenings we enjoy watching them browsing through.

This evening we were taking the dogs out for a quick bathroom break, and saw this little guy down by the deer station demolishing the food block.

This is about 150 feet from our RV. The flags are marking the site of a future pond.

We got him to interrupt his meal and look at us by shouting "Hey Bear!" a few times.

A healthy belch and it's time to be on my way.


  1. That's a fine looking bear you all have. Hope he behaves at all times.

  2. He hung around for a week and has probably taken off by now. He did have a healthy fear of humans. One time I went out at yelled at him and he took off in a hurry crashing through the woods. The game warden figured he was 2-3 years old and on his own for the first time.
