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...

Re: Bear Attack on the Aug 23rd

Thanks for the post, Jenny. A few years ago, a big cinnamon black came came out of the trees and walked up, right behind me, in the parking lot at Artists Point. :shock: I was taking pix of a bull elk. Luckily, my hubby saw the bear, waved and gave me the high alert. I've seen hundreds of bears over...

Re: Bear Attack on the Aug 23rd

Thank God the boy's parents had bear spray and knew how to use it correctly. One shot in the face and the grizzly sow took off. They were also hiking in a group of 4. So there ya go, I hope that every Yellowstone visitor and hiker will follow and take their lead. Whenever you're hiking in bear count...

Re: July 11-15

I hear ya, Mike..........Sure wish we could go back to the good ole days.... when Yellowstone bears outnumbered people, you could hike for miles and never see another person and you could sit at the counter at the Canyon Soda Fountain and eat giant-size pancakes for less than $5 that were bigger tha...

Re: So, what's the park like this year?

You're right on the money, Mike! I went to Artist Point, south of Canyon in mid June. With the high water and all the rain that the Park was getting, I thought I might be able to capture an early light, morning shot of a beautiful rainbow, hanging over the Falls. We had just started walking down the...

Re: 35 SLR and digital compatability

rzrpirate, my best advice is to call B & H Photo in NY (they have a toll free phone number). They sell older 35mm gear and they also sell a Novo lens adapter that possibly might work. But it's going to depend on the make of your digital camera and the lens. Seems to me that I read that the adapter w...

Re: YELLOWSTONE LIVE - 4 DAY EVENT 4-5-2018 NAT GEO CHANNEL

Finally broke down and decided to watch the last show of Yellowstone Live. I was really hoping that Nat Geo would get it right this time considering all the negative reviews on Part One. But instead of redeeming itself, Nat Geo merely added insult to injury. I mean really.....enticing and feeding a ...
