Who

& How

Identification Tools: 
Not only am I a wildlife biologist, I have been through the IDFG bear awareness training. I understand that color and hump are not 100% accurate for identifying grizzly bears, but in the brief views that I had, the two signs together (not including the size) lead me to believe confidently that it was a grizzly bear. In addition, I have seen six black bears this year and none of them had any of the traits that I described here.
