The big bruin drops down into a grove of Pines and I loose him against the dark timber. It is now that I notice the two coyotes that Les had mentioned and filmed. They are just to the right and really watching him and occassionaly approaching the timber he has disapeared into only to come back out into the sage and just sit there watching in the bears direction. I really thought the bear had hunkered down in the rain and to sleep off his night time feast. and was surprised to suddenly find him at the bottom along the river as he approached the moose. I had been so intent on watching the coyotes I had never seen him descend the steep hillside. he is now directly below me and about 50 yards away.
