Wildlife Updates – Bear Sightings

DWR Contact – Bruce Johnson 801-541-3906
Things to remember:
– Landowners are responsible to damaged property if humming bird feeders, garbage or other food attractors are found reason for the bears to come in and do damage. Even if it is not YOUR property.
– Humming Bird feeders are the worst. Even if stored in your cabin. Bear can even smell inside of cabin. Store them in air-tight bucket when not in use.
– Do not shoot or confront bears on your property. You will be fined if you do harm or discharge firearms within the association.
– Best to have bells or whistles on you when taking long hikes. Make plenty of noise will deter bears and avoid confrontation.
– Report all sighting to Bruce Johnson. He is the expert over all bear activity in our region of the state. His expertise is extensive and he will investigate all sightings and retain recorded incidents.
 Current sighting/activity:
June 2, 2013 – Corner of Yosemite – 7 pm – Lot with blue tarp & old cabin – Witness: Brad Fritz – Clara & Brad Fritz reported to DWR, Bruce Johnson. Two cinnamon bears seen on corner. One man got off ATV and young bear stood up and took good look at him. Bears moved off to higher country.

June 6, 2013:
Bill Pettigrew – I spoke with two DNR representatives who stopped by my cabin to ask about any bear sightings. Lot 32/33 Sioux road. We arrived on Wed. and I found two fresh bear scat    droppings. DNR estimated it to be less than 12 hours old. We did not see any bears. But the DNR said that all garbage should be kept inside. NO hummingbird feeders should be used. Outside grills should be put away. They are considering setting some traps during the week in an effort to relocate this bear. Please be mindful WE are in the bears front living room. Problem bears only become problems when they have access to easy food sources. This bear shows little sign of fear.
June 8, 2013:
I spoke with Bob Sluders son who came face to face (15 feet away) from bear at yellow lake. The bear maintained eye contract as they moved apart but showed little sign of fear. Hiker was just walking and came upon the bear.

2012 report: Dear Alpine Acres Association members,

Thank you for an outstanding picnic this past weekend!  Our numbers
continue to grow–I counted approximately 140 in attendance.  It ism
always nice getting to know one another better.

I hope you enjoyed the information presented–my thanks to those who
participated.  After the picnic Sargent Wright vigilantly patrolled the
area for fire pit and firearm violations, issuing citations.  We want to
foster harmonious, neighborly relations while also safeguarding our mutual
investment for the safety and enjoyment of all.

I believe we will be welcoming many new members into our association
family this year and are grateful for their interest.  Thank you for
continuing to reach out and invite neighbors to get involved.

Sunday morning a handful of us gathered to drive roads, assessing repairs
needed to gates, locks, roads, bridges, culverts, etc.  While we have
addressed and will continue to follow up on every action item decided upon
during our annual meeting, we will also continue to take action on issues
that can only be found during the summer months.

We will continue to network with county and federal contacts to hopefully
obtain financial assistance in every area possible to ensure our area
remains as safe and beautiful as can be.

Thank you for your personal efforts–the county road is lined with debris
that is ready for the chipper service.  Our awesome association fire
council is following up to ensure the chipper is rescheduled as soon as
possible.  With all the wild land fires, it takes continual following up
to ensure we received promised service, and we are grateful for all

We will continue to communicate any pressing or important items via
e-mail, and you are always welcome to contact us with any question or
concern.  We are grateful for the opportunity of serving you, and thankful
for your cooperation and contributions.

David Pack, president


DNR update on river

The Upper Weber River follows the current DNR regulations published in 2013 proclaimation. Much of the access to the river requires fisherman to request access from private landowners. Cut Throat, Brook trout and Rainbow trout are found in the river. The lower meadows of Thousand Peaks Ranch are private and require a daily or annual pass to access the lower river.
