Nice large bear! To my eye, it is likely Zuni, but hard to know for sure. Are there any initials carved into the bottom of the feet?

What great character, looks Zuni to me especially with those eyes. You will have a hard time figuring out the artist if no marking.

I can’t help with the ID but just want to say that I love him. When he looks at you, you can tell he has something really important to say. That takes a good carver to give expression like that.
