Hunting in Grizzly Bear Country: How to Handle A Carcass After the Kill


good Royals he looked at that Tim he is
coming down the mountain so I guess.. try to kill him no one what you’re gonna do with your meat before
you actually go harvest it is everyone is huge typically a lot of guys still harvest in the
evening so you can be bringing it in at night or just parts of it so you need to
be familiar with your area when you’re field dressing it it’s a good idea to
have somebody on Lookout once you start opening the critter up and you get that
blood smell in the air that’s gonna attract bears I’ve investigated with the
Game and Fish and Fish and Wildlife Service a lot of maulings and number-one
thing is nobody was watching when that bear came in from behind him
it’s a dangerous game out there somethings hunting you now drag that
carcass away from the gut pile or the point of death that’s always a good idea
I like to try to get those carcasses out in the open so I have a lot of
visibility you daren’t you don’t want to take that thing back to your camp
so the Forest Service has done quite the job over the last 20 years of building
food poles and meat poles get it packed out that night get it hung up which is
at least a hundred yards from a camping area and so it’s got to be 10 feet off
of the ground and four free from any vertical next to it that’s the best way
we know that humans can take care of food or game meat because that’s the
attractants that drawn in and so if you don’t have any reason for him to come in they don’t come in and the best thing you can do is get that out of
there as quickly as possible is to get that carcass back to the trailhead and
back home we killed my bull on a North Face killed it right at last light and
so I just wanted to get him gutted away from the gut pile as best I could and
then come back the next day to quarter him in pack him out instead of being out
there all night quartering him in the dark we both took off our base layers
and wrapped him around the horns sure by putting that clothing on it when you
come back the next day you can see if that carcass has been disturbed and if
there’s maybe a bear on it glass that carcass makes sure there wasn’t a bear on it and he probably came from the upwind side so a bear could
smell you if there was one around as hunters we just need to understand that
just because we don’t see a bear doesn’t mean that there’s not one in the
vicinity so making noise and going in slow and taking your time that’s that’s
the best thing we can do if we have to leave a carcass overnight so say I do
come back to the carcass there’s a bear eating on my meat do I shoot shots in
the air do I leave what do you do so in Wyoming and if there’s a bear on your
carcass you need to leave that carcass and and not get into a dangerous
encounter with that bear part of the risk of hunting in bear country and at
the end of the day you’ve lost your carcass and you’ve punched your tag and
I know that’s kind of hard for some guys to hear but in reality that doesn’t
happen that often in Northwest Wyoming if you take the steps that we’re talking
about you shouldn’t have a problem absolutely if we were just to leave this
bull laying on a side overnight gutted he’d be sour this morning you know even
though it is it’s snowing right now it’s upper 30s that’s what we prop them up
like this let that air escape it’s too late last night to really get
him quartered in great country so can we peed around here we put our base layers
on him so we just have our stinky base layers
just to have that scent up here and sure enough I mean there’s not even any birds
up here well guys we’re gonna get this bull
quartered pack down to the trail about 850 feet horses coming in to pick us up
it’s been incredible six days out here in grizzly country some great hunting
back here just going to be willing to put forth the effort and brave the
grizzly bears
