    Default Sow-Boar? 2

    Here is another one! Not certain how this is working, since the last time the percentage of incorrect answers jumped from about four percent to about sixteen percent after the correct choice was posted.

    Joe - I could add a poll to the top of the thread, and if you'd like I could close the poll right before you post the right answer so that the answers couldn't be manipulated later. Let me know.

    I'll start my uneducated guess is sow

    why? .. long nose/ little eyes?

    proximity would make me wanna shoot...
    posture and expression would make me not shoot.

    I have no experience to have an educated guess.

    If you cant stand behind the troops in Iraq.. Feel free to stand in front of them.

    Joe, I set it up so that the poll will close automatically in two days. I can change that time frame if you prefer something else.

    given real world circumstances i'd just grunt and tell whoever was asking me to wait till i got a better view before asking me to judge sex on this bear. some are tough as joe demonstrated with the last one...got to that thread too late to give an answer but i called the last one a sow based on head shape, and i'm gonna call this one a boar based on head shape, and my imediate first impression when i saw the pic. i'd be lying if i said i was remotely "sure" about this one...tall order with only this view. fun game though keep em comin joe...

    I'm thinking Sow,
    just cause that face looks too much like a Mom, too nice,
    nose, eyes, etc. a bit too feminine

    I chose sow but would not be shocked if it turned out to be a young boar. Definitely does not strike me as a king of the river type mature boar.

    I would say sow. The distance between her ears is less than the distance from her nose(think isosceles triangle). Generally the distance between the ears and the distance from the ears to the end of the snout are about the same on the bigger boars (think equilateral triangle).

    Sow or boar I sure want to scratch it between the ears.
