    anywhere high, get into the berries and be patient, sometimes bears take time.

    Thumbs up Denali Hgwy

    Try around Butte Lake, in particular the ridges to the West (S. of the Highway). Over Labor Day there were 2 Griz foraging hard in this area, including one that was on a caribou gutpile within 24 hours. Unless someone offed him, he in particular was a nice looker. Blond with the dark "Koala Bear" eye rings-a beautiful animal actually. The other was a little further our and more of your typical chocolate color. I've seen quite a few in the last several years here where 5 years ago, say, we never saw Griz up here. In fact, two years ago we saw a big old boar chasing a group of 5 cow moose without calves throughout the course of the afternoon. Couldn't access him unfortunately (below treeline looking down through one hell of a boulder field, but given time......), cause I'm sure there was a reason none of these cows had calves with em'.

    You'll probably need a wheeler unless you're willing to hike in about 3-4 miles (to spotting distance). Too bad we were headed home at dusk and on a time leash..........and no, we didn't shoot the caribou. Same old problem, I need to be unemployed!

    There's a huge grizzly about 15 miles north of mile 147 on the Glen. Some friends saw the tracks around their camp, but never saw it or any moose. The trail is swampy and nasty the first few miles, so if you go watch out for quick sand. That's what helped kill our hunting trip.
