Taking a sow during bear season..

  1. I am very new to bear hunting so please forgive me if my questions seem like general knowledge questions. I was reading about the breeding habits of black bear and see they breed between May and July so if the season opens in September and you take a sow chances are she will be pregnant. What are some of the ways to tell a sow from a boar? Besides size are there any traits?
