It's been a tough couple of years for great gray owls in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. This owlet and its 3 siblings were from one of just a few known successful nests. It was quite an exciting moment to hear its begging call from deep in the woods as we walked by. . . . . .

It's that time of year. I grew up watching elk bugle in Rocky Mountain National Park with family. We didn't hunt, or know anyone who did for that matter so this was one of the few places that we could see this amazing behavior that sends elk hunters into a frenzy in the fall. Today I get to share this amazing phenomena with guests of @jacksonholeecotours , and, on my days off later this month ,I too will be chasing elk in the National Forest as a hunter. Humans have been hunter gatherers for the vast majority of our existence and for me pursuing elk is just as much about connecting with that primordial part of humanity as the opportunity to fill my freezer with healthy organic free range meat. That and here in Wyoming we get to share incredible hunting opportunities with predators like wolves, grizzlies, and mountain lions, all of whom have lived on this landscape for far longer than we have. I Can't wait! . . . . .

These two mule deer fawns spent the summer feasting on fresh plants growing out of the Berry Creek Burn Area between Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. This fall, they may be part of one of the longest known, yet also endangered, migrations in the Americas, traveling over 200 miles south to Wyoming's Red Desert. . Recently published research shows that these migrations are learned behaviors, and if they are not passed down through the generations, they disappear. Thats why conservation organizations like @thetrcp are opposing the current proposal by the @USinterior to push oil and gas leases through within the migration corridor. You can read my recent LTE on the subject from the LINK IN BIO, better yet contact @govmattmead at governor@wyo.gov and @wygameandfish (307) 777-4600 and share your support for Wyoming's great wildlife migrations. . . . . .

Nighthawks are fast becoming one of my favorite birds. We hung out with this one for a bit this morning before flushing it off of the road it was bedded on. Good luck buddy! (Check out my story for more) . . . . .

I've never met a scientist who wasn't humbled by the mysteries around them and curious to learn more. In a few days I'll be trekking 50 miles across across the heart of Yellowstone National Park with this one! We'll be joined by my father, who along with mom, started this wild lifestyle I live with trips to Rocky Mountain National Park and other Public Lands across the West. At nearly 70 years old, dad hasn't slowed down much since then, just tell him there's dark beer at the next campsite and he will charge off down the trail! @kira_cassidy . . . .

"I want that tasty morsel!" This mule deer buck and the 6 others we saw nearby seem quite content with the wildflowers and grasses exploding out of the ashes from the 2016 Berry Creek Fire in Northern Grand Teton National Park. This area is also along the longest known mule deer migration route in the world, a nearly 250 mile trek from the Red Desert in Southern Wyoming all the way to Island Park Idaho! . . . . .

Throwback to this sleeping juvenile black bear in Yellowstone National Park earlier this summer. Black bears are thought to have become semi arboreal to avoid larger predators during the Pleistocene. Cave and Short Faced bears were 6' at the shoulder on all fours and could make a quick meal of a bear like this one. Though they are now extinct, grizzlies remain, so and one can't be too careful when taking a good nap! . . . . .

Ravens with Buck Mountain in the background. I have a special love for these highly intelligent birds, who constantly adapt to changing conditions in order to thrive across the globe. These two may be using some of over 200 known vocalizations ravens use to discuss some nearby tasty carcass or other food source. . . . .

We're fortunate to have great scientists all around us in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, seeking deeper knowledge of the world around us. It's been great getting to know many of them and hear their stories. This female fox, F2, is part of an on going study to better understand how foxes are adapting to humans in Grand Teton National Park. With over 4 million people a year visiting the parks the human footprint is expanding. It is our duty as stewards to recognize and manage the impact it leaves. . . . . .

Yesterday's stunning storm, sunset, and wildlife extravaganza in Grand Teton National Park made for a spectacular evening. The antlers on these bull elk are growing fast thanks to all of the rich vegetation from all the moisture we've been getting. . . . . .

Celebrate Independence Day by advocating for our birthright, our Public Lands. As Americans we own 640 million acres of land, irreplaceable wildlife habitat, migration corridors, clean watersheds, and wild country for the heart and soul. Public Lands are what Make America Great. To Senator @senmikelee and other land grabbers now trying to take our land, I’ll be fighting you every step of the way.

Wildflower season. These are blue camas, whose bulbs were a prized forage of indigenous cultures. The 2016 Berry Creek Burn Area is on 🔥 with wildflowers right now, a great example of the benefits of fire on the landscape. . . . . .
