It ain't easy tellling them apart especially from any distance. If you look at my last couple posts the boar profile from the side and front you can see he kind of has a different face structure(kinda like a shovel face) than the sow does. Older mature boars also get that hump on their shoulders where it is not as noticeable on the sows.
tough to explain, I was looking for some pictures to help but can't find and good side profiles of sows.
This is private land ,but those trees in the distance are the end of it so it's not much of a problem(I'm allowed here anyways). We don't have huge tracts of private here most is public!!
Thanks for inspiring me with those nice pics. I am bear baiting this year here in Idaho and am excited to buy and try out a trail cam on my bears.I guess I better put it in a metal box so it does'nt get munched. Please post any other bear pics you get.Oh and what kind of trail cam was that? Those were nice and clear.
camera is the old style AF(slide switch) MS20 with a 3/4 inch hole for lens and enclosed in a GSI LEXAN container. It seems those bears cannot bite through them they have tried numerous times but I think they tire of it easilly.
Have a roll getting developed right now(could have built a house out of the "PILE" left for me)
I am running 400 spd film (ALWAYS). Most pics of bears seem to be in the day have only got a couple so far of them at night. I am jut using a 1 min delay right now. Ther are a couple of grizzly walking around and if they come by I want to get multiple pictures of them.
