Wolf watching’s main man lets up
Although officially retired, Rick McIntyre is still a mainstay in Lamar Valley.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK— The deep, raspy roars of two grizzly bears battling on their hind legs are audible from hundreds of yards away.

It’s just before 7:30 on an early April morning as Rick McIntyre shuffles through the snow up to the drama, capped by a black wolf opportunistically eating on what’s left of a bison carcass that spurred the skirmish. Any banter that rises above a whisper (I learn firsthand) is quickly shushed. The scene unfolds at the so-called “Bob’s knob” rise overlooking the low reaches of Slough Creek, where around two dozen devoted cameramen and wolf-watchers are entranced, along with a few lucky folks passing by.

Within a few minutes the grizzly fracas eases, the bears’ roars replaced by the honks of Canada geese, the bugling of sandhill cranes and the babel of human conversation. McIntyre, too, diverts his attention.

“Take a look at that family,” he says. “Everyone’s smiling.”

Love Rick. He has a plethora of stories and a wealth of knowledge. I could listen to him talk for hours about all the individual wolves he's watched through the years <3

it's caving-in the sky

And the tempest is raging,

couldn't tame it if she tried
