A Quiet Day - UPDATE September 16, 2022

The day ended capped off with a nice visit from Pixie and her cubs (too dark for a picture). We heard no shots today. Rain kept the hunters away. The day before yesterday gave a nice look at Eva (picture), a yearling from Donna’s tenth litter last year when she was 21. 22-year-old Donna has now had 28 cubs—within one of 23-year-old RC’s 29 cubs. She mated with Spanky last year, but no cubs resulted. Donna and RC are now tied at 10 litters each.Beaver lodge built in 77 fresh mud

A sunny morning three days ago started with a look at the beaver lodge that was freshly mudded overnight.

Tomorrow starts the last big weekend of bear hunting that eases off with the opening of grouse season that starts tomorrow. Breathing easier.

Thank you for all you do,
Lynn Rogers, Biologist, Wildlife Research Institute and North American Bear Center
