I wouldn't count on seeing GGOs in the usual locations in YS, but you can usually find one out and about on Moose-Wilson Rd in GT, if you're willing to spend enough time looking. I saw one there last October, but unfortunately it was well after sunset.

Edited. I realized that my post came across as whining and that was not my intent. So, I deleted it. For those that are curious, it had to do with being able to imbed images into posts vs. linking to them via an outside provider. But, it sounded like whining, so I deleted it.

In September 2016 we located a Great Grey Owl in the Bridge Bay area which was a thrill beyond belief. I did hear that a few weeks later that it had been hit by a vehicle and died. We will be going to YNP the end of the month and wondering if anyone has seen them in this area or elsewhere. Out of all the animals and birds in YNP & Tetons this is the one thing highest on my list.

Grizzlies suspected of killing guide are dead. Sad couple of days, but when you enter Grizzly country you always need to be prepared and more so when you kill an elk and find it almost a day later.... You have to think maybe a bear is close and maybe wants to eat it too.... Is your life worth an elk? Let it go and find another elk.... Food for thought.... Nobody's life is worth the risk.... Sorry for the man who lost his life....https://www.jhnewsandguide.com/news/env ... 4f670.html

Wow, I just saw the still shot before. I hope they arrested him and put him in a cell with the bison matador. What a jackass.

I'm very sorry, my tone wasn't meant to be harsh to you, I am just feeling bitter towards Frontier for ruining what started as a very good service. Their customer support and tech support has been horrible and they can't seem to figure out any technical problems that come up. I didn't mean to sound ungrateful for your attempt to help.

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 done so. Reportedly, Frontier has lost its CFO, thousands of customers across the country and is currently in a financial death spiral. Whatever you want to do to reconnect to the world, Rik, is totally up to you and I'll refrain from offering any more help, suggestions and/or words of encouragement. Best of luck to you!

Frontier didn't install a damn thing here in this part of Florida. All they did was buy out Verizon and then screw up what Verizon already had going.

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 start looking for tracks along the River and for any signs of a kill when it's a bit safer. Until then, I'm sticking close to the house so I can keep an eye on our bunnies and deer and the 4 new fawns that were born this year. They make such EZ targets for a hungry bear, mountain lion, coyote or wolf because they're so trusting and see the land around here as a safe haven, where they can come and go safely and do as they please. Very similar to the trusting nature of the animals that live in Yellowstone. Last week, we had 3 big whitetail bucks wandering through our yard every morning and afternoon. Today, all the whitetails have completely disappeared. Usually, it's the bucks that disappear but they don't usually start their Houdini act until the start of the hunting season. So, not to see a single whitetail today was pretty unusual. I think they must sense that there's a major predator in the area and are hiding out until it's safe to come out into the open. I'll keep ya posted on the mountain lion. Hopefully, it can be relocated to the A-B Wilderness without having to kill it.
