Greater Yellowstone Region and the Snake River Pla
Wanting to set up a equipment set to monitor human chatter about wildlife in the greater yellowstone area, I am a wildlife photographer and would like to use the information to help me be in the right place at the right time to get some good images.

I also would like to hear behind the scene conversations about wildlife management issues and interactions with public to further my understanding about the tough public policy situation we have up here.

I am completely 100% new to scanning have no equipment as of yet but looking at getting a GRE 500.

Any frequency's that are in any way related to wildlife in the Gardnier Lamar valley region would be most appreciated.

In particular,
Department of Livestock
Montana Fish and Game
US Forrest Service
Wildlife Services
Department of Agriculture Wildlife services division

Any research group, activist group or watchdog orgnization using radios that operate on a frequency i can scan into.

Thanks for your help!
