    I have hunted down off the rim for the past several years. I have had alot of success hunting there even though the elk numbers werent so great last year but it was unseasonably warm. Lots of access for 4 wheelers which can get to be frustrating. I have only run into two black bears in all the years hunting there and havent seen a griz track yet. Find an area with enough water the help get a good frost on things and that is where you will find the elk.

    They caught one at Dutch Joe and a friend I graduated with shot one somewhere near Pinedale a couple years ago so their area is getting bigger. Check the g&f weekly bear report.

    I guarantee there are grizz in that area. Couldn't tell u the probability of running into one but I wouldn't be archery hunting up there without a heavy sidearm.

    Hunted there several times when I was younger. Meanest country I've ever been in.
