Monarch ?????Contributors to this thread:
I’ll be hunting within 50 miles of monarch this fall... just curious of the Grizz numbers in that area? Thanks
I guess it is possible to run into a grizzly in that area, but highly unlikely.
Ok thanks Irishman
There was one grizzly reported in the Big Belts last year, but if my memory is correct it was a young bear roaming around. I don’t think it staked out a place to call it’s own. As Irishman stated, the possibility exists but is not likely in this area. Blackbeard are definitely in and around Monarch.
Agree with what's stated above. Very low chance to see one.
thought I might contribute: I live adjacent to the L/C in Monarch and last season we had two immature brown (grizz) bears trapped within 5 miles of my house. Now there is a much higher concentration of Black bears to be certain but there are a few brown bears messing around.
