Park elk hunt - 1961

I saw this in the Hungry Horse News yesterdays column. I wonder how long these hunts took place: "60 years ago Jan. 6, 1961 ....Glacier Park would have its annual elk harvest in St. Mary, with the meat going to the Blackfeet Tribe. About 50 elk were expected to be taken. Four Blackfeet rangers would...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

LOL!! I love that article/story Lyman. I assume that Christi is your daughter? Is she the one that did the AT a few years ago? Yes Christi is our daughter and she hiked the AT in 2011 (March 20 to August 5, if I recall correctly). She works as a civil engineer but in her spare time she has become a...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Hi Pete, I enjoyed your spruce grouse photos and videos in late November. I think my daughter once shot a spruce grouse by mistake but she said it didn't taste very good. However, she is a great fan of ruffed grouse: https://bangordailynews.com/2020/12/03/outdoors/some-might-call-it-roadkill-but-thi...

Re: Old News

Thanks for that additional information. I believe I was in the Park visiting for a couple weeks in 1975 at the time of the Grinnell Glacier trail incident and I vaguely recall reading about this incident in the Hungry Horse News at the time. My recollection from reading about the incident was that a...

Re: No porcupines

Pete, That is a very interesting article and thanks for posting the link. It sounds like the mystery continues. I don't recall hearing anything about porcupines when I worked at Lake McDonald 1970-72 and I never heard of anyone encountering them on the trails or around the hotel. Of course they are ...

Re: No porcupines

Hi Pete,
Thanks for posting the link.

I wonder what happened to the porcupines. My daughter's dog seems to be able to find them now and then, much to his regret.

No porcupines

An interesting item from the yesterday's column in the Hungry Horse News. I wonder what happened to all the porcupines? "Oct. 28, 1960 Editor Mel Ruder called for a bounty on porcupines for the damage they did to trees and human equipment, like vehicles and ax handles. Today there are few porcupines...

Diving Accident at Lake McDonald

A sad accident at Lake McDonald.

Does anyone know what the submerged artifacts are which attracts divers to this location? I have never heard of them before.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Hi Pete, That is indeed a great photo of Clyde. I hope that he will surprise you and show up one of these days. Regarding the Huckleberry Lookout hike, if I recall correctly it took you 5 hours from the trailhead to the Lookout with the snow conditions on the trail. Just curious but how long do you ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete,
I enjoyed your Huckleberry Mountain video very much and thanks for posting it.
Perhaps you mentioned it, but about how much of the trail was not in snow?
