grizzly bears

Hi,

I saw the post by gamehuntersx5 about grizzlies in the south san juans. He stated he saw tracks along a river. Did he take any photos. Have there been any new sightings in 2010?

Sincerely,

Rosga

Re Grizzly bears

Rosga,

Where did  you read his post? I've read that they believe grizzly bears still roam around that range due to tracks, scat, etc however no sightings have been made since the 90's?

Here is the thread that was

Here is the thread that was started quite a while ago.  But until they either come up with pictures, or the dna of a grizzley it is all speculation.  I know of hunters that see a big brown faze black bear and swear it is a grizzley just by its size.  A good test to tell the difference is on the Montana's gane and fish web site.  You have to pass it to get a bear license.

Makes you wonder how many of these sightings actually are the cinnamon black bears, and not really grizzlies......

there have been reports of

there have been reports of Griz in Colo for years, back in the early 80's, when in collage at Durango, spent a lot of time around Wolf creek, the old timers up there (made friend with a old, old goverment cat hunter) said there is good population on Griz up there.  There was a gris killed by a bow hunter in the 80's in the San Jaun's, it was all over the paper, guy spent some time in the hosp.
