Found a tibia in the woods while hiking: Anyone know what species it might be?

Hi there!  I live in the Ottawa area of Ontario in Canada.  WHile out hiking I found a single bone; pretty sure it's a tibia.  I would really like to know what animal it may have come from.  There were no other bones in the area that I could find.  It measures about 9 inches (22.5 cm).

 

HEre are a few photos of it:

Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks!
