Interesting. #14, the next to the last question, was also the only one that I got wrong.

I missed #2... always thought I'd be able to tell black from grizzly bear, but I guess in photos its a bit more difficult.

I missed 15...

Some of the pictures were pretty tricky, I think identifying one that you had glassed in the field would be easier. The shoulder hump is pretty tell tale and some of the pictures did not have a shoulder shot.

This is all theortical for me though never hunted in a region that has both species.

It's all theoretical for me too - I've never positively seen a grizzly. I might have seen one once when I lived in Banff, but I'm not sure. There was some decent Black Bear hunting around home, but I was never successful, and I refused to "get in line" at the dump for a shot at a garbage bear.

Did pretty good on both the Montana and the Wyoming bear tests. 100% on both.
