Re: Comments Welcome: Why the lack of Interest or Participation on this website?

Don't get discouraged, Pugman. Historically, participation is usually fairly slow from the late fall and through the winter. But when March rolls around, most of the Yellowstone diehards will be back in force, along with many newcomers. Right now, I'm in So Cal working on my health again and trying ...

Re: Breaking News.... NO GRIZZLY HUNT! Grizzly Bears Protected again....

Bill, you may want to read this article at: https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/nature/wolf-restoration.htm Hunting has never been allowed inside the Yellowstone NP boundaries. And, as far as I know, that's not going to change. Since you have a home close to Yellowstone, remember, that you'll always be a...

Re: Can't access this site from home

Rik, I really didn't appreciate your last reply or the tone, especially, when I was trying to help you and was totally sympathetic to your situation. Here's my last suggestion and then I'll be on my way. You may want to check out the current stability of Frontier as a company, if you haven't already...

Re: Mountain Lion Alert

Yep, I hear ya Mike. Last winter there was mountain lion that was seen by some of our neighbors in SoCal. It was walking right down the walking promenade that runs behind all the homes in the community. Haven't seen any bears or cougars, yet, around Nye. But I know they're around. I'll probably star...

Re: Can't access this site from home

Rik, I truly empathize with your situation. We live in a fairly remote area of MT, and we didn't even have Internet access until around 2005. That was one year after a mining facility was built about 7 miles from our house at the base of the Beartooth Mountains. The company needed high speed Interne...

Mountain Lion Alert

Thought I'd give folks a heads up that there's a mountain lion that's been roaming the local Nye, MT area. Just saw a pic of it in our local paper. The photo was taken with a trail camera, which was set up fairly close to our house (NE of Slough Creek). I haven't seen it, yet and hope that that I do...

Re: Can't access this site from home

Sorry to hear that you're still having problems, Rik. Did some checking and you may want to read this article that I found in the Tampa Bay Times. Here's the link: https://www.tampabay.com/news/business/energy/Report-Frontier-Communications-may-sell-its-Florida-operation_167162355 I think it's time ...

Re: Another Reason not to Hunt Grizzlies?

Bill, based on my own knowledge and personal experience with bears, I personally believe that most bears follow and act on their own base inner "bear" instincts rather than on smarts. When they're hungry, they'll search for food and eat. When they're going through the bear's annual life stage called...

Re: Bighorn Ram

Excellent shots, Rik! Were all your posted pix of the same ram? Judging from the number of segments on the horns of the ram in your second pic, the broomed horn tip and all the deep battle scars on the bridge of its nose and around the eyes, this fella must be at least 7 or 8 years old. Bet he's one...
