Re: Bears in the woods, how tough to tell?
I have grown up hunting in NW MT, and I can usually tell you in a half wink of the eye.I hunt alot in grizz country. But with lighting,mud on their coats and size,I have wondered on a few. I spent a fair amount of time looking at the paws of the largest MT blacky I have seen, iT was so big and slight chocolate I thought it had to be a grizz. Lately most spring bear hunting I see about 1/3 grizz, most springs I see about 30-45 bears, saw over 60 one spring.
