            They have been putting grizz in there for years has not helped too much they usually wander off. BTW spar lake is not in the cabinet wilderness or the cabinets. Behind spar is some really cool country though,if you have the right shoe leather.

            MfgMan: "What am I missing????" Well, with a Masters Degree you could make around $100,000.00 a year out in the woods 'doing research', and retire after 20 years with a heck of a pension......Oh, and Spar Lake is real close to the Troy Silver /Copper mine, and they just had some very positive bore drillings and are thinking about expanding the mine....hum.....the Politics of Endangered Griz......

            We just saw a large grizzly in the Cabinets below Lost Buck Pass. We were a little closer than I would have liked to it at about 120 feet, but the bear just casually walked away.

            At any rate, what I'm truly puzzled by is the sheer number of bears they are transpanting. My understanding is that grizzlies need about 50 square miles each in NW Montana as it is not considered great habitat, and thus 40 bears in the Cabinet - Yaak wilderness would require 2000 square miles, or double what is there. What am I missing????

            more transplanted bears, more trouble for people. a complete waste of taxpayer money. wolves and bears are getting out of hand and should be eliminated to the point they dont bother people by being very scarce, best not seen !!!
