Fall Grizzlies and Wildlife Photo Tour

Grizzlies are again regularly seen in mid to late autumn. The colors are waning, the crowds are thinning and the grizzlies have entered hyperphagia – that manic state of consuming every last calorie before the onslaught of the rapidly approaching winter.

Grizzlies spend their entire waking existence eating. The COY (cubs of the year) are young teenagers now, but the bears look as fat and sleek as they will all year.

This is arguably your best time of year for an intimate encounter with a grizzly bear. This is when our local knowledge and network are the most helpful. We will have close to real time information on which bears are out and where.

Moose, elk, bison, other wildlife and landscapes are plentiful during this time of year. We will photograph them as they present themselves, but our primary focus is grizzly bears.

This photography workshop will base out of Jackson, but we will look to spend at least one day in the Lake Butte area of Yellowstone looking for Raspberry and Snow if we get word that they are about and the weather cooperates.

These tours are best from early October through the middle of November. All of the roads in Yellowstone’s interior close November 2. After that we will be spending all of our time in the Tetons.
