This dataset contains detection histories of grizzly bears in areas of Grand Teton National Park that are open for elk harvest as part of the Elk Reduction Program. Sampling followed a robust design analysis with 6 primary sampling periods of 4 weekly secondary sampling periods each during 2014-2015. In both years, primary sampling periods were in July-August (no elk hunt), September-October (no elk hunt), and November-December (elk hunt). Detections were based on genetic sampling (hair samples from barbed-wire hair corrals, tree rubs or other structures, and elk carcasses). Detection histories were derived from a total of 274 grizzly bear hair samples of 31 individuals. Twenty-six unique individuals (4 F, 22 M) were retained for analysis.
