Black bear. Only the color is grizzlyish. Everything else screams black bear.

Ears, snout, body.....distinctly black bear.

BC, that is a tough angle but the face looks to be a black bears, so I would say a Black bear. That looks to be a huge bear, is that a B.C. Island bear?

Thanks for the link to MT's bear test. Amy, I didn't see a second photo of that bear photo. I thought the test was straight forward and the bear were easy to see the difference between the griz and the black.

Mountain Bear...

I want to put up a poll on this one..anyone know how ?

No it is not a Island Bear...There is no differance between Island Bears and Mountain bears except fat. Skull size and true squared are the same....Except we have hair...Island Bears have thin coats...from being out longer...Mountain Bears have much better coats and are as big skull size...populations are as good if not better in some regions...I have had clients that hunted with Island Outfitters and not even shoot Bears...
