They forgot to mention the old way we learned to know for sure.  When encountering bears, if you climb a tree a hungry black bear will climb the tree after you.  A grizzly will push it over.   :chuckle:

Also you can tell from the droppings.  The Grizzly's crap smells like peperspray and is full of those bells they sell at REI. 

Seriously though, In North America virtually every case of black bears attaching humans has been determined to be predatory.  Meaning the bear was going to eat the person it attached.  The way to keep a black bear from attacking you is to either shoot it in the vitals or don't look like food (I like to yell "Hey Bear!" if it's not hunting season)

I'm not 100% sure on the statistic for Grizzly bear attacks but my understanding is that the vast majority of he attacks were territorial but not quite all.  This seems to suggest that to avoid Grizzly attacks one might leave the area and not confront the bear.  If the bear seems intent on attacking being aggressive and fighting back may be the wrong move.
Such is life in the West and the further West the more the such.

Do yourself a favor:
At least one grizzly bear has been confirmed by WDFW in the North Cascades and we have a couple dozen in Northeast Washington. Here is the Montana bear identification test, take it until you pass with 100% and you will be much safer of not accidentally shooting a grizzly bear in Washington.

http://fwpiis.mt.gov/bearid/test.htm


Thanks to WDFW, Washington now has online bear identification training and a test. I strongly urge all Washington bear hunters to take this training and test, it may save you from accidentally shooting the wrong bear. Just the other day I was shown a trail cam photo of a mother grizzly with cubs that was taken in NE Washington this year and there are numerous other grizzlies in Washington.

100% first attempt

Thinking on completing the certificate, but can't hunt in Montana anyhows so wouldn't do much good except to have.

I aced it...really not a very difficult test, for me anyways! But gotta remember when your in the woods and the heat is on and they are 50, 75, 100 yards away from can you make that quick assessment and make the right call?

Got a 100% easily but I'm still trying to figure out why the heck we need grizzlies (and - thank you for posting this. it was fun and it will help many hunters). Makes about as much sense as adding wolves. We have too many predators already!

We used to have the plague and smallpox too.  I don't see the knuckleheads lining up to bring those back.  I agree that we are getting too many predators.  There was enough population control due to hunting to keep deer, elk and others at reasonable levels.  Got 100% on Montana's test a few years back.  Those are fun things to do.  WDFW should have more interactive activities on their website.

You need predators in the wild to pick off the week and sick that's mother natures way of keeping bad genes,traits, and diseases from being passed on.

You are right.  I spoke out of frustration about hunting managing the herds.  As hunters we rarely take the sick and injured.  So I feel some predation is necessary.  More than we used to have, but not as much as there is now.  And certainly not as much as the antis want.

100 in Montana. 93% in wash. I believe wash. was more challenging, although you only need 80 to hunt in Montana.
