Iím surprised we donít have a coyote wolf one yet.
:chuckle: That would be a good one,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,If the Fish and Game officers had to pass it also,As often as the hunters also.Seems wolves get reported often by farmers and the dept just claims nope not wolf unless one is shot.

Good point, Oh.  If they gave a test and people passed it and reported a wolf; then they would have to acknowledge there was a wolf.  (or their test was pointless)  Then they would have to follow up on all the sightings and pay up for kills.

I just took the test and passed, but some of the test pictures were difficult to identify 100%.

No, I missed some because the picture was to vague. I would rather miss some, than misidentify what kind of bear it was.

It didn't give me a percentage, however it said I passed.  I'm quite sure I got all ten questions correct. Also took Montana's test and it did tell me I got a perfect score. I printed both certifications just to be safe.

Thank you,  it says I got 90%. It also says on my certification that it expires Nov. 30th of this year. Is that the same for everyone?

Some of those pictures were poor choices. I got one that seemed to be a bear facing directly away all I could see was it's rear pointing at me and the grizzly cub pic was dumb too. I passed but I would like to see some better pictures or maybe short video clips on next year's.
