    For purely a gbear viewing experience, tough to beat the BC Wildlife Park in Kamloops, almost guaranteed
    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

    Simon Fraser had pretty good judgement on what he found in BC

    I took a couple of new hunters to an older clear-cut ridge near Niles Lake in October of 2013. We hiked to the saddle of the ridge and climbed into a wooden tree stand that my son had constructed a few years earlier. We had a good vantage point 12 feet above the ground. Once up, I raised my binoculars and scanned the area. Something caught my eye immediately... about 500 yards away was this beautiful, glistening silvertipped grizzly turning over stumps and foraging. We watched him for 10 minutes before we lost him in the underbrush. We had set up for an evening hunt and I decided that there was no way I wanted the two 18-year-old novice hunters to have a grizzly encounter in the darkness. We left the hill. There there are most
    certainly grizzly in Region 8-5.

    Saw two grizz near Princeton last year. One galloped across a huge clear cut at an alarming rate. About an hour later in the same area I saw a herd of about 15 elk. Another one I encountered at about 75 yards away while calling in an elk. He heard the conversation and wanted dinner. That was intense.

    I had a very close face to face encounter with one up behind my house last spring and saw very large bear tracks up Bata FSR a couple of weeks ago. The front tracks were just about as wide as my size 9 hiking boot and had that turned in Grizzly gait to them. You don't need to go far to see them, they're around here for sure.

    It's easy to change a 3 into an 8
