I guess i should mention that if we didnt have that fence, we would have a grizz IN camp each night most likely. They are a serious nuisance and get worse as the season goes on and they get closer to hibernation as they look more and more for food sources. I will try to remember to post up a couple game cam pics i got this fall of one of the biggest bears i have deal with. He caused us absolute havoc around camp this year, so i set up a game cam and got picture and video of him hitting the fence.
    Screw all that... When decided what units to apply for, the first question I answer, above all else, is: Are there grizzlies in the area. I refuse to hunt anywhere near where they are, or might could be.

    You could say I have an mildly irrational fear of them.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I know one thing for sure....I consider the big bears (Grizzlies & Alaskan Browns) as the most dangerous animals in North America! I want nothing to do with them except from a long distance away. I really don't even have any desire to hunt them either. They are awsome animals.

    I'll second that mntguide ! The grizzlies haven't been hunted since around 1970 and have no fear of people and will eat your downed elk if they get to it before you do and not a thing you can do about it. They have no fear of going after your hanging meat (elk and deer) either. I'm sure wolves are no different but at least they are getting an education , the slow way.
    How all has been well with you mtnuide .

    eastern idaho units are getting there grizz probs too, obviously island park and driggs area but also pallisades on both sides of hwy and north and south of there along wyoming border. stopped baiting bears in a couple spots for that very reason. had a close run in with a grizz in unit 67 years back and wasnt cool knowing i had little choice as to what to do. luckly we backed out and he headed the other way. even during self protection if you harm or kill a grizz and tell about it you become the criminal. child molesters get lighter sentences than some people that have killed grizz in defense. not cool.

    Here are a couple pictures of this guy from my game cam...I should mention that he figured out how to rip through the electric fence with one rip of his paw. That is what is laying on the ground under him. .. So yea, just cause you have a fence doesnt mean your safe. We guessed him at 500+lbs.. easily. He is one of dozens we see regularly. I usually see 2+ a day while out covering country guiding.
