The bear paw is a maneuverable shoe without a tail suited to a wide range of activities on dry or melting snow. Favored by people who work on snowshoes, i.e. winter fence-mending, maple syrup bush, .  Snowshoes without a tail are best when maneuverability and not weight bearing is a preference. This type of shoe is often the first choice of forest workers, hunters, trappers, and many winter campers.

Bear Paw Snowshoe

Bear Paw

In forested areas, the snowshoer will have to break trails of unpacked snow. Furthermore, he will be confronted with obstacles such as stumps and dead falls. A large snowshoe will provide a more stable gait; and its design with a short tip will minimize the accumulation of snow on the front while walking.
