Thread: Can someone tell me what this is?

  1. #1

    Default Can someone tell me what this is?

    I got this on my game camera. It appears to me to be bears claws, but black or ????? I figure some of you would have a more educated opinion. Thanks

    Ok. I'll take a stab. Pure speculation at best with a bit of experience as my guide.

    On the left I am seeing the neck/throat of an ungulate (deer perhaps) with its ear in the top left center. On the lower right center I am seeing a tine.
    (And, no, I haven't been smoking anything funny! ;) [lately])

    My best guess is a deer got up real close to your cam and was eating browse about a foot or two above it. Any indication that might be the case on the trees and shrubs around your cam?

    I did have a couple of small chew marks on it, but nothing bad. I wondered about tines on an antler also, but then I thought of claws. There were any numumerous blanks.ber of claw marks on the trees around the area. My camera seems to have a slow reaction time I think in taking pics. I seem to get

    I'd bet it was a bear taste testing your camera. It looks like your camera caught an open mouth shot of the top K9 teeth. They appear identical in size and are parallel to each other.

    As sharp as those claws appear to be I have to say that is brown bear getting intimate with your trail cam, certainly a bear though.

    If those are bear claws, they have a fair bit of curve to them. My guess would be a black bear's paw. A grizzly claw is generally straighter.

    I hate to point out the obvious but I say its an IRS agent. The blood sucking fangs are a dead give away. The fact that it was probably taken in a remote location also shows there in no place to hide from them

    Looks more like the front two brow tines on an elk. The hair looks like elk also.
