Possible impact crater?

It's big, it's round, but is it a crater? This one's in northern Canada, just NE of Great Bear Lake. There's a smaller round feature about 30 miles SE of this one.

I think it’s more likely a glacial cirque, the bowl shaped indentation formed at the head of a huge glacier...

Huh. Interesting web site. I don't know. Maybe the glaciers cut left and right, leaving a high spot.

I do know this: Much of the North American landscape was formed by glacial action. Also, I've never heard of there being an impact crater there, and I would think it would be a noteable thing. But now I'm interested. I'll look into it...
