Re: Gear Question

Hey, Rick, just wanted to wish you a successful Park trip. Looking forward to seeing your 2019 trip reports and pix, especially, the ones taken with your 300/f2.8. That lens was at the top of my lens wish list in 2015, but I ended up getting the 400/f4 prime because of the weight difference. So I'm ...

Re: May 24...last (half) day

Rik, except for the bad weather, which is still plaguing the northern Beartooth Front, I think that you had a very successful trip all things considered. Thanks for posting your trip reports...rejoyed reading every one of them. I'm sorry that I couldn't make my Park trip. Would have enjoyed meeting ...

There are several areas in the Park that are bear management areas and they're often closed in the spring while the bear management folks are conducting research, tagging and counting bears. The bear management areas usually open sometime in June but sometimes later, depending on the level of bear a...

Re: May 20

Holy Karumba, Rik! Sounds like you're finally being rewarded for all your patience, persistence and for all the bad weather that Mother Nature has been dumping on you. I'm tickled that your day was so productive. May you be blessed with more critter sightings and more photo ops on your way back to B...

Re: May 18

Sorry that the Tetons weren't very productive for you, Rik. I know how frustrated and discouraged you must be. If it's any consolation, I can recall a few years when I never even saw a bear at Slough Creek or any place else in the Park, for that matter. Sad to say that some years are just like that....

Re: May 17

Rik, thanks for the report. Did you get any pix of the stranded calf at the Confluence? I saw something similar happen back in the 80's at Slough Creek. It was an incredible sight. A mama moose was leading her calf across the Creek, when the strong current, without warning, lifted the calf right off...

Re: May 15

Looks like everyone is having "beary" good luck in the Park right now. Keep your trip reports and pix coming....they're great! Many thanks to everyone for taking the time to share your sightings.
