  • Brown or cinnamon black?

    Small brown bear or cinnamon black?

    Seems to have big ears, not much hump and not much dish to the nose?

            Thanks STID, I'm super stoked you guys are thinking the same thing I was! When I looked at it on the little camera I take in the field I just assumed brown because my baits been getting whacked by a few browns. Got home and started looking on the computer and started changing my mind!

            Thanks again!

                In the second pic it definitely looks like a small griz. It has characteristics of a small bear: big head in relation to body, prominent ears. BUT. If that is a 55 gallon drum, which will hold 440 pounds of water, and the bear is nearly the size of the drum, is it a small black bear? A small black bear will weigh less than 100 pounds, and will appear to be about a third the size of the drum. I can stuff one whole into my back pack with room for my coat. My vote is definitely griz. If it is a cinnamon blackie, its a BIG blackie, not a little one.

                  Small black. Ear size relation to head size. It just looks like a young animal.

                    Brown for sure. Don't shoot if you're on the refuge.

                      It is extremely difficult to positively id with those pix, but I think it is a young brown..
                      How frequently are cinnamon phase blackies seen on the peninsula?

                        It's definitely one I'm going to have to stare at for a while if it comes in while on stand. Most of my cam pics have been much better but this bear came in right after the camera switched back to daytime mode and the light is still bad obviously. I'm going to go sit tonight, maybe I'll get to check it up close!

                        Thanks for all the input!

                          Looks like a 5 footer, not bad at all.

                            Of which species? I'm uncertain from the photos and we have a mixed vote so far!

                              I played with the midrange lighting to see if I could get a better look and once brightened up a bit I'm 99% that's a brown bear, and a 3 year old boar at that. For me the give away is the length of the muzzle and the classic, abrupt "dishing" where the muzzle meets the face.
