Squared off, blocky head = boar
Small, dainty fee in relation to the body/legs = sow
Pigeon toed, wide feet = boar
Comfortable, confident gait = boar
Pushy, nasty, bad attitude = sow

Sows also generally rub earlier than mature boars. You'll see tell tale rub marks on a breeding sow on her flanks just in front of her hips.

Good info Russ,I have been bear hunting a few years and have a hard time telling the differnce some times.
