Can you tell the size of a black bear by the size of its paw print? If so how?

    Can you tell the size of a black bear by the size of its paw print? If so how?

    After guiding bear hunters for more than 45 years, i have always been amazed at how small the paws on a 300 pound bear can be and how large a paw a 200 lb. can have. I find they are a lot like humans, some big men have small feet and hands and the opposite for small men. I still pay very much attention to tracks but i pay more attention to the size of the droppings.
