I like better Montana's tutorial and test on distinguishing black bear from grizz: Montana bear identification tutorial and exam. Maybe it's the extra shock (in the Montana test) of realizing you just "shot" the wrong bear and will probably spend a few years receiving free room and board from the Federal Prison systemů. Mostly, though, it's that Montana's pictures are better.

I will have to look at that one. The reason I like the Wyoming web site is that it documents all grizzly encounters and plots them on a map- that way I can see where the grizzlies are relative to my trip plans. It also gives me a quantitative measure of the risk. Does the Montana web site do that for Montana areas?

Both sites seem good to me, although I got 100% the Montana's test, and I missed 1 on Wy's test. I DO like Wyoming's Griz capture data. And taking the tests is good practice either way... funny the way people call some bears in the Sierra brown bears based on their color alone.
