« on: June 18, 2017, 08:38:05 PM »
anybody think the bear walking away is a grizz? (looks like a big color phase black bear to me).

i included a good pic of a blackie for perspective...

if you look at the size of the ears compared to the size of the head on the first 2 photos compared to the black bear below them you can tell thats a decent boar. looks like a beautiful color phase bear.

Blackie....deserves a dirt nap for taunting.
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

Old bear vs young bear but both are black bears.  Interesting that you got photos of the 2 on the exact same piece of ground.
