Grizzly Bear Kill

Black Bear

The extra day’s stay at Grizzly Bear Lodge involves a trip to visit Trapper Rick. We cross Knight Inlet then travel through Thompson Sound to the Kakweikan River a total of about forty-five minutes.  This river is located on the BC mainland and then we travel by road to Rick’s cabin. Several years ago the short hike to the cabin meant passing the location of a fresh grizzly kill.  In this case it was a black bear that was not fast enough at climbing a tree. After about a month the carcass was picked clean and Rick had the skeleton on display at his cabin. A day with Rick may include any or all of the following: short hikes, fishing for salmon, watching salmon spawn (in season), watching grizzlies fishing (again in season), and enjoying Rick’s stories of trapping and living with grizzly bears.
