  • Grizz Den - Nobody Home

    We went for a nice spring ride N. of FBKS yesterday and found a fresh den site. We were both too chicken to crawl inside and have a look see! We also spotted a sow with a cub that appeard to have just come out of their den site. Great day for a ride with the rifle.

      I found a den once and did not know if it belong too a bear or wolf. I describe it to a biologist and there was one clue that proved it was a bear den. Do you know what the clue was?

        seen quite a few bears out already, my buddy peeked into a den to see if anyone was home the other day. fortunately he narrowly escaped a mauling as a bear came charging out and started bouncing on his front feet and woofing a few feet from him. he managed to jump on his snowmachine just in time and speed away as the bear gave chase...he won't be checking dens again anytime soon....

          Hmmm, wonder if I'm being set up? Besides the obvious (bear tracks, bear scat, bear inside, bear hair), I don't know. Whatcha got?

            cjustinm: That's crazy! So did he get the bear? I'm guessing you meant "fortunately" he escaped a mauling...

              nope it was unfortunate..he's an idiot....just kidding glad you caught that. no he didn't get the bear come to find out it was a sow with a couple of cubs in the den so now he's avoiding the whole area like the plague until they leave.

                Wow, he's one lucky dude. I was nervous standing there taking pics of the den even after circling it a few times on the snogo and with the rifle in hand. I could see it happening.

                    You’re 100% correct, that what I was told no animal parts. If it was any other animal there would have been bones, fur, feathers, etc.

                    Did you Google the answer, or did you know?

                            "No bones or feet, etc. parts of eaten aninals around or in the den". That makes perfect sense, I'll have to archive that in the memory banks.
