“...two grizzlies approaching the kill, feeding on it, and even wrestling with each other.”
Personally, I’ve always found that wrestling after dinner promotes indigestion.
How about a limited Griz season?
Or, a “landowners can protect their livestock” rule?
(I believe that was the point of the earlier “SSS” post)
...but....2 griz is a LOT of diggin’!
One must assume that in Canada grizzlies are a protected species like polar bears due to Global Warming and advanced bureaucratic brain rot.
They’re protected, you’re not.
Need a good rifle in the right caliber. Remington 700.
.338 Win Mag
.338 Remington Ultra Mag
.375 H&H Mag
.375 Remington Ultra Mag
8mm Remington Mag
But he is in Canada. I’m not sure he can own a rifle. The .375 H&H or the Ultra Mag would get my vote. BTW not for casual plinking. These are real shoulder thumpers.
I learned (while in Montana) that Grizzlies are more at home in the plains, hunting the likes of cattle, than in the mountains.
It explains why they can’t climb trees like black bear can.
Saw some grizzlies a few years ago while crossing the Rockies from Alberta to B.C. Drove through Cranbrook back into the U.S.
1st mistake.. mentioning this to anyone....
2nd mistake.... not buying a bear dog.. and a shovel..
There have been some weird predator changes up here on the Range, george76. Coyotes have been hanging around longer and getting closer. There aren’t as many red tail hawks, but there are way more rough-legged hawks and golden eagles. They’re always around close. Daytime mountain lion sightings are more common, too. Maybe it was the drought. Not sure. And BTW, I’ve only seen elk herds that are much smaller than usual and haven’t seen them often. Antelope are more scattered and in smaller numbers, too—quite a few lone ones sighted.
I live 100 miles NW of Wycliffe across the Purcells. There’s a grizzly population in the low hundreds in between us.
Folks around here love and respect the griz; one of my neighbours has grizzly bears feeding on spawning kokanee now right next to his garden - he has no problems with them. Last year at this time my wife and I were able to observe a sow and two platinum blond cubs feeding on huckleberries within a hundred feet of us for a couple of minutes.
I heart British Columbia!
But yeah, some bears you have to shoot.
bump for later
