Thank you all :) It is a real treat to see the Goldens, truly magnificent raptors. The Bald Eagles are showing up for the calving season here so hopefully will catch some.

Thanks, Mike -- I have been reading the monthly reports on your page, and they're wonderful. I just hadn't realized that May 1 would be the first chance for antler hunters in the reserve, so wondered if that was an all-weekend thing, or just the first day. I will have many places to go, so a one-day rush along the reserve road wouldn't be a problem in my plans. Thanks for the heads up!

Again, I really love your photos and the wonderful information on your page. I have a feeling our trips to Grand Teton are going to be even better with all this additional information. We're so looking forward to being there again. The photos/info from you and others in the area just make me wish I could be there all the time. Never a bad time to be in the Tetons.

Love the ermine shot.
They're all great, but I think my second favorite would be the ram at the end, chewing on a twig or whatever.

Dorothy,
Just about everything I wrote in that post pertains to Winter. By May 1st, much of it will have changed. The elk will be moving off the refuge. Some of the areas will be starting to turn green. The sheep will be bleached out and far from rut mode. The predators will be following the prey animals off the refuge. Some areas of the park will likely still be snow covered but usually not the south and east section. By June 1st, everything is green and animals start having babies.

There are quite a few roads that open on May 1st, including the access road to Curtis Canyon. Many of the elk and deer move off the refuge and drop their antlers. On that day, it is a race to get to the edges of the refuge to legally harvest the antlers. On the second day, there'd be just a trickle of people. And, that only pertains to the very last mile of the refuge road that's open all year. I definitely wouldn't alter plans based on this single event.

Even more to the point, if you are planning a trip to GTNP, go to my site, then click on one of the previous Daily Updates pages for the months you are considering. You'd be able to see what all of April looked like last year, then all of May and so forth. I don't know of any other resource like it any where on the internet for helping people visualize what they might see here.

Best of luck on your trip,
Mike Jackson
