A group of researchers is performing a very interesting study on how bears and hunters interact . . .
From almost four miles away, the grizzly bear appeared to have picked up the elk carcass’ stench.
Researchers were able to revisit the grizzly’s trek as it walked along the edge of a lake, eventually swimming across the end of the water to reach the carcass, because the bear was wearing a GPS collar. The same location information showed the bear visiting and moving away from the carcass several times in following days.
