Trip Report May 14

Saw a lot of stuff, couldn't photograph much of it. I was in the Hayden just past Grizzly Overlook at 5:30AM and had two wolves cross the road right in front of my car. Much too dark to take pics. Arrived too late to see them crossing again in daylight by just minutes twice afterward. Got pics of a ...

Trip Report May 13

Spent all day on the carcass at Slough Creek. The same wolf fed on it for an hour in the morning and 45 minutes in the evening. Also got a coyote in the early evening.

Trip Report May 12

Went east this morning, checking for grizzlies and great greys and saw neither. Just before lunch, I got one of the Wapiti Lake pack in the Hayden, but a bit far for pics. Went out to the East Entrance in the afternoon and found a grizzly on a carcass. He was skittish of the traffic and didn't stay ...

Trip Report May 11

Went out to the Lamar early. Got some shots of Junction Butte wolf 1229F coming off a carcass with a big chunk of meat in her mouth before the Wolf Project Stasi shut down the overlooking hill. Also got a bald eagle and a coyote on the carcass. Spent a lot of time at Slough Creek looking for badgers...

Trip Report May 10

Started out early and drove east. Went all the way to the East Entrance, then went back and forth between Otter Creek and Bridge Bay, keeping an eye on Fishing Bridge and parking there for an hour or so at a time on and off, waiting for the owl to come back, and saw nothing all day long except a gri...

Trip Report May 9

Went east today and spent the whole day out there trying to find more grizzlies. At that, I was unsuccessful. Only grizzlies I saw were a sow and cub from a mile away in the Hayden. But then I found a great grey owl near Fishing Bridge and spent basically the whole afternoon there. Almost ran over a...

Trip Report May 8

Day started slow. I wasn't feeling great in the morning, so I slept in and didn't head into the park until 9:30AM. Went to the Lamar first because it was snowing and I knew it would be snowing harder the further east I went. Out near the Buffalo Institute, I saw a grizzly sow with two yearling cubs ...

Re: Trip Report May 7

Rik, Great video! Thanks for sharing. Was that taken with your new camera? Great to meet you as well. We were thinking of going to Lamar today but the weather caused us to hold off. If you go to Hayden, the bears were to the west, one before Grizzly Overlook and one after down by the restroom. That...
