take the test and see how you'd do...be honest and post your results.

Well, I passed at 80% (12/15).  Some of those are tricky, especially if your not used to seeing many bears.

I guess I won't be hunting in Grizzly country. I passed with a 80%, but some of those where tough. I have never seen a bear in the wild thought so that probably doesn't help. :dunno:

Fun test...I scored 87%.  Missed the question with the mom and her young cubs, and the blond-phased black bear question.

100% for me, but I just got here from Alaska so I better have gotten them all....  Especially when we used to hunt from our stand over bait up there and Big old Griz comes in to see what morsels are in the barrel...  F & G frowns when you drop a brownie in the vicinity of where you have a Black Bear Station located, they will check it out for the most part.  Last year had to throw a water bottle at a old boy to get him to leave, standing up in the stand didn't work, yelling didn't so before firing a round as a noise maker, the water bottle technique worked.  By the way it was getting dark, dark, and darker and didn't feel like staying in the stand while he and his buddies raided the barrel, keeping me from getting to the boat... and picking up the other two guys....

that would probably tend to deter the blackies from coming in too i suppose.

I got 87%, looking at the 2 I got wrong, I don't know why I answered them the way I did  :dunno:
 I don't think the game agent would buy that.

Jakelope-  You'd be surprised-  got video of a Black momma and two cubs, five minutes later a sow Griz came and the three walked away then a big Blackie chased away the Brown ten minutes later.  Some areas they are really mixed, normally once a Brown is on the bait, they become protective, but the Black bears keep figuring out how to get on the bait.  It really sucks when you go up to re-bait and not sure which one has been there or is still there.  Keeps you active that is for sure.
