On July 5th, 2015 Brad Trent, Bill Miller and myself decided to do a Recce, up a reopened Forest Service Road (FSR) located on the east side of Harrison Lake, BC.
Having had the hottest and driest spring in many years, we decided to head out early to try and avoid the hottest part of the day, thinking the possibility on seeing wildlife may increase before the + 30 Celsius expected temperature hit with full energy-draining force.
We were right. We encountered a nice black-tail deer, and either a large Black, or medium Grizzly bear, which dashed into the shadows in about 3 seconds. Bear scat was all over the place and we encountered more than a few footprints, as well, including this one below:
This clearly demonstrates how one can be fooled into thinking he is looking at a Sasquatch footprint, when in fact, he is looking at something totally non-Sasquatch related.
This footprint, in my opinion is overlapping bear tracks as the animal came out of the bush and moved down an embankment onto the FSR.
This area, though, I believe we should return to a number of more times and really check it out. It was gated and closed over the last few years due to logging equipment being kept there. Now it seems to open to the public again.
